Ozzy Osbourne is giving his New Jersey fans one last chance to get aboard the crazy train this fall at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel.
Speaking to reporters yesterday, Osbourne announced the “No More Tours 2” trek will land in New Jersey on Sept. 10 with special guests Stone Sour.
The reason for retirement, he said, is his desire to see his grandchildren grow up and enjoy more time with his family.
“Instead of being on the road all the time, I’m just gonna do gigs when [they] come up. It gets old, you know. You start being like a mouse on the wheel,” Ozzy said. “I’m not saying I haven’t enjoyed the touring but it’s just, I’ve got grandchildren now and I never saw my own kids grow.”
He continued, “I never had the time to spend with my kids, ’cause I’d come in drunk and go out sober and do some more shows. I want to [see my grandchildren] grow up a little bit.”
But never fear. Ozzy says he is open to a Vegas residency, and fans will have plenty of time with him even after he is gone as a hologram.
“I’m the Prince of Darkness,” he said. “I will haunt you.”
Ozzy is also set to headline Chicago’s Open Air Festival in July.
