Legendary British heavy metal rocker and former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne is returning to Israel to perform music from all five decades of his career at Rishon Lezion’s Live Park on July 8 as part of his Farewell Tour. However, this apparently doesn’t mean he’s retiring, necessarily.

“People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” he said in a press release. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”

Osbourne last performed in Israel in September 2010 at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park as part of Ozzfest, Osbourne’s long-running multi-band metal festival that he launched decades ago.

Osbourne rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, delivering such iconic songs as “War Pigs,” “Iron Man” and “Paranoid.” After the 1978 album Never Say Die, Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath, which led him to form his own band with the help of his new manager and wife, Sharon.

In 1980, Osbourne delivered a solo debut, Blizzard of Ozz, that was a resounding commercial success. Featuring the singles “Crazy Train” and “Mr. Crowley,” the album reached the Top 10 in the UK and No. 21 in the US, where it would eventually reach multi-platinum status. His 1981 follow- up Diary of a Madman performed equally well. In 2002, Ozzy and his family made it to MTV in a hit “reality sitcom,” called The Osbournes, a video journal of their wacky life in an Los Angeles mansion.

Longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Blasko (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards) will join Osbourne for this last hurrah.

Tickets range from NIS 299 to NIS 666.
