Ozzy coming back to Prague in 2020

The heavy metal singer’s farewell tour will hit 02 Arena at the end of February

Ozzy Osbourne is coming back to Prague’s O2 Arena on Feb. 29, 2020, as part of No More Tours 2, celebrating five decades of the Prince of Darkness live. The opening act is Judas Priest.

Live Nation club presale starts April 30 at 10 and goes to May 2 at 5 pm. Sales to the general public start May 3 at 10 am.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back to Europe for these shows. Thank you to all the fans for sticking with me and waiting for the new dates to be announced. I can’t wait to see you all next year,” Ozzy said when the new dates were announced.

He was last in Prague on June 13, 2018, as part of the same farewell tour, that time with Hollywood Vampires as the opening act for an open air show.

People who missed that show or Black Sabbath’ the End Tour in Prague on June 30, 2016, really should take advantage of this extra date, which really does sound like a last chance. This tour has been announced as the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows.

“People are still asking me when I'm going to retire,” he said. “This is going to be my last world tour, but I cannot say I will not come back here and there,” Ozzy said when No More Tours 2 was announced.

While best known for his work in Black Sabbath’s early years and subsequent reunion, he also has a large number of his own hits from the 1980s and 1990s such as “Crazy Train” and “Mama, I'm Coming Home” that he performs in his solo shows.

The six-week trek kicks off in the UK on Jan. 31 before wrapping March 16 in Zurich, Switzerland. The tour includes stops throughout the UK and Ireland in Nottingham, Dublin, Manchester, Newcastle, London, Glasgow and Ozzy’s hometown of Birmingham before heading to Europe for gigs in Germany, Finland, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy and Switzerland.

This news follows an April announcement about Ozzy’s North American dates, which will take place in May through July 2020, culminating in a show in Las Vegas.

Some of these North American dates were rescheduled from 2019 due to an injury. Ozzy fell at his Los Angeles home earlier in 2019. This aggravated an old injury from a 2003 ATV accident, which required new surgery.

“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates. Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I’m grateful for the love and support I’m getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it’s really what’s keeping me going. Just know that I am getting better every day. I will fully recover. I will finish my tour. I will be back!” Ozzy said after the accident.

He is regarded as the Godfather of Heavy Metal, since Black Sabbath basically invented the genre as we now know it.

His total album sales counting Black Sabbath and his solo work is over 100 million. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Black Sabbath and is in the UK Music Hall of Fame as a solo artist and as a band member.

He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and another in his hometown on the Birmingham Walk of Stars. Other awards include three Grammys and a Godlike Genius award in 2004 at the NME Awards in London.

He found a new audience on MTV in the early 2000s when he appeared as himself in the reality show The Osbournes, along with several family members.
