On May 31, legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne signed his star on the “Walk Of Fame” at the Vegas Crocus City shopping mall in Moscow, Russia. Check out video footage below.
Osbourne said that getting a star on Moscow’s “Walk Of Fame” was “a great honor.”
Other celebrities who have stars on the Vegas shopping mall’s “Walk Of Fame” include Robbie Williams, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Mila Jovovich, Carlos Santana, Gloria Gaynor, John Cusack, Roy Jones Jr. and Antonio Banderas.
Ozzy played two concerts in Russia — June 1 at the Olimpiyskiy in Moscow, and on June 3 at Ice Palace in St. Petersburg. He was joined at the gigs by his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards).
At a meeting with Russian fans and mass media prior to the Moscow gig, the BLACK SABBATH singer promised that this would not be his last visit to Russia. According to TASS, he explained that this current tour, which will last until 2020, is indeed his last world tour. However, he added that he “cannot leave music”, because this is “all his life.”
The main North American leg of “No More Tours 2” will launch on August 30 at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania and run through October 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ozzy will be joined by STONE SOUR for this leg of the tour.
“No More Tours 2” is a reference to Ozzy‘s 1992 “No More Tours” jaunt, which was meant at the time to be his goodbye to the road.
Ozzy and BLACK SABBATH bid farewell to their 50 years on the road more than a year ago with two final concerts in their hometown of Birmingham, England.
