Ozzy Osbourne will be kicking off the European leg of his farewell world tour, No More Tours 2, in Dublin next January.

The 69-year-old rock star is playing Dublin's 3Arena on January 30 with support from heavy metal band Judas Priest. 

His own band will consist of long-term collaborators guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Cluefetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

No More Tours 2 will be Osbourne's final jaunt, although he will perform select live shows in the future.

The former Black Sabbath frontman said: "I've been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers.

"I'm looking at this final tour as being a huge celebration for my fans and anyone who has enjoyed my music over the past five decades."

The title of his final series of shows, No More Tours 2, is a reference to his 1992 tour, which had been billed as his last.

After it was found that he had been incorrectly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Osbourne changed his mind and continued to tour.

Tickets to Osbourne's 3Arena gig will go on general sale on Friday, September 7 at 9.00am from Ticketmaster priced from €59.
