Ticket alert: Ozzy Osbourne at BB&T Center

Ozzy Osbourne will perform May 31 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, with opening act Megadeth, in new dates announced on his never-ending farewell tour, No More Tours 2.

Tickets will cost $35.25-$245.75 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at all Ticketmaster outlets, including Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000. A Citi Card presale begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The tour celebrates Osbourne’s more than five decades as the leader of Black Sabbath and as a solo performer, with a set list that includes “Paranoid,” “Fairies Wear Boots,” “War Pigs,” “Black Sabbath.” “Crazy Train,” “Mr. Crowley” and, on some dates, “Mama, I’m Comin’ Home.”

Osbourne again will be backed by his longtime collaborators, guitarist Zakk Wylde, Rob “Blasko” Nicholson on bass, Adam Wakeman on keyboards and drummer Tommy Clufetos, who was such a force sitting in with Black Sabbath in West Palm Beach a few years ago.

Reminiscent of Elton John’s years-long farewell tour, the No More Tours 2 concert schedule stretches into 2020, but Osbourne, who turns 70 on Dec. 3, acknowledges he is not done performing. Following the Barry Manilow model, Osbourne will continue to do one-off shows here and there when the inspiration strikes.

“What I'm stopping is doing what I'm doing now, going around the world all the time,” Osbourne told the Philadelphia Inquirer recently. “I wish people would understand, I'm not retiring. Is it my bad English accent? It's called the ‘No More Tours’ tour. It doesn't say, ‘No more tours ever.’ ”
