Black Sabbath final LP and tour planned for 2016
Ozzy Osbourne says Black Sabbath's final LP and tour will happen in 2016.
The 66-year-old rocker has confirmed the legendary heavy metal group will bring their career - spanning over 40 years - to an end next year after giving fans one more chance to see them play live.
Speaking at the Monsters of Rock press conference in São Paulo, Brazil, he said: "The plan is that next year (is the) final Black Sabbath tour and album. It could change."
Although Sabbath - also comprised of Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler - are going to stop, Ozzy is going to continue with his solo career because being a musician keeps him feeling "really young".
Ozzy - who is married to Sharon Osbourne - said: "Being in the music business keeps me really young. When you hit 60, people ask, 'Are you gonna retire?' F**k no, man."
The singer also explained the reason why the band have taken so long to make their latest record - the follow-up to 2013's comeback LP '13'.
He explained:"We all live in different countries and some of them want to work and some of them don't want to, I believe."
