Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has announced additional North American tour dates for 2019. For these shows, OSBOURNE will be backed by his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards), with Megadeth supporting for the entire North American run. The tour will make a stop in Cincinnati, OH at Riverbend Music Center on Thursday, June 6, 2019.
On his upcoming farewell world tour, OSBOURNE will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which formed in 1968). This tour, expected to take OZZY around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows in the future. Throughout his career, OZZY has sold more than 100 million records.
This will mark the first time Megadeth will join OSBOURNE for a full tour, although they have performed together previously at OZZFEST and other festivals around the world. Megadeth burst onto the scene thirty years ago, virtually inventing a genre with their debut album Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!(recently recognized by VH1 as the Greatest Thrash Metal Debut Album of All Time) sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including a 2017 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Metal Performance” for the title track of their fifteenth studio album Dystopia, 11 additional GRAMMY® nominations, a SILVER CLIO for their Dystopia campaign and scored five consecutive platinum albums—including 1992’s two-million-selling Countdown to Extinction.
