Just a few months after ending an extensive, farewell tour with his legendary group Black Sabbath in the group’s hometown of Birmingham, U.K., Ozzy Osbourne seems poised to retire from the road completely. Today, heavy metal icon announced that he plans on calling it quits following one, last extensive tour, set to kick off in Jacksonville, Florida this Spring.

“People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” Ozzy noted in a press release heralding the announcement. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.” For the final run, Ozzy will be joined onstage by his long-time musical partner Zakk Wylde on guitar, Biasko on bass, Adam Wakeman on keyboards, as well as Bill Ward’s live fill-in with Black Sabbath, Tommy Clufetos on drums.
