ozzy retirement sucks tour1. Ozzy Osbourne

In 1992, Ozzy Osbourne announced he was retiring following his No More Tours tour (get the pun?). The tour got lots of attention, and even lead to a Black Sabbath reunion (which ended up destroying the Dio reunion). And after the release of 1993’s Live & Loud live album, Ozzy called it quits… until he came back in 1995 with a new album (Ozzmosis) and a tour dubbed Retirement Sucks. Say what you will about Ozzy’s current condition on stage, but it ended up being a good thing that Ozzy’s retirement was short lived. After all, if Ozzy stay retired, Ozzfest may never have come into existence.
