Billed as his farewell tour, the former Black Sabbath frontman is ending a near 50-year career on the stage.

As reported by NME, he commented on the controversy surrounding Justin Timberlake's planned use of Prince's hologram during his Superbowl performance, saying "From what I know of Prince, he wouldn't have liked that", he said".

"I did a show there a few years back - it was unbelievable", Ozzy said.

Returning to the theme of performing after the farewell tour, he said he "wouldn't mind" some form of residency shows.

"The Talk" co-host and the "Paranoid" rocker - who shared their family life with the world on hit MTV show "The Osbournes" - have had their ups and downs during 35 years of marriage as Ozzy has battled drink and drug abuse problems and more recently sex addiction.

Ozzy Osbourne has added North American tour dates for 2018. "Now it's Ozzy Osbourne, and I have more control over what's going on than I did with Sabbath". "I$3 t's a passion for me. I'm just taking it easier on myself".

The "War Pigs" singer is to be joined by longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde, Blasko, Tommy Clufetos and Adam Wakeman on the run, and will be supported by Stone Sour.

"No More Tours 2", a reference to his retirement attempt in 1992, begins in Mexico this May, before heading to South America, Europe and the United States.
