Taking time away from calling former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward fat, Ozzy Osbourne appeared at a press conference in São Paulo, Brazil on April 24th right before his Monsters of Rock appearance. When asked about the future of Black Sabbath, Ozzy confirmed there are plans to record next year and do one final tour. You can hear his confirmation at the beginning of this video:
Ozzy also confirmed he will be continuing his solo career after Sabbath wraps up, and he's writing new material for himself. Previously, the band said they hoped to write their final album in 2015, but it looks like scheduling did not allow that, so it's being pushed back.
It looks like next year will be Black Sabbath's farewell year. After seeing these guys live last year on their reunion tour, I'm excited to say goodbye one last time.
