Less than a month after revealing he almost died from a staph infection, Ozzy Osbourne is announcing more dates on his ongoing No More Tours 2 Tour. The 69-year-old will be joined by Megadeth during the North American leg, which begins on May 29th in Atlanta and wraps on July 29th at the Hollywood Bowl.
The Hollywood Bowl show is one of four makeup dates from the latest leg of the tour, which the rocker was forced to postpone due to his staph infection. Following the North American leg of the tour, Osbourne will spend the rest of 2019 touring Europe, Australia and Japan.
"I didn't feel sick, so I was cracking jokes," Osbourne told Rolling Stone of the potentially deadly staph infection on his thumb. "The doctor said, 'I don't know if you realize, Mr. Osbourne, this is a very serious problem you have.' Sharon said, 'Would you stop f—ing making jokes?'"
Finally he began to understand the magnitude of what was happening. "They’re all extremely, deadly serious about it," Osbourne continued. "I judge it based on the expression and the body language of the doctor. If he comes in with a really solemn face, I go, 'Oh, OK. My time to go is up.'"
Amid his recovery, Osbourne has also planned the one-off Ozzfest in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve to celebrate his health.
Osbourne said that his fans should not interpret the "No More Tours" name as a farewell tour, clarifying that it's simply his final full world tour. He still plans on playing short runs of dates in the future. "I'm no good at anything else," he said. "I literally can't do anything else."
