Ozzy Reveals Black Sabbath's Retirement Tour Plans

(hennemusic) Ozzy Osbourne says Black Sabbath are planning to perform their farewell tour in 2016. While admitting that schedules could change, the singer said, "The plan is that next year [we'll do] the final Black Sabbath tour and then it's over." "We all live in different countries and some of them want to work and some of them don't want to, I believe," Osbourne said during an April 24 press conference for the Monsters Of Rock festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil. "But we are going to do another tour together." "I'm still gonna continue my solo career," Ozzy added. "I'm doing these few [solo] gigs down here now. Then at the beginning of next year, I'm going out with Sabbath. The Sabbath thing is folding up after the next tour, but I'm gonna continue my solo career." Ozzy's wife/manager Sharon Osbourne created confusion about Black Sabbath's plans when she announced on March 20 that the group were headlining a farewell show at Ozzfest Japan this fall. "Ozzfest will be back in Japan on November 21st and 22nd," said Sharon. "And this will be Black Sabbath's farewell. We're also announcing Korn, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary. Now you can't miss that." Watch the press conference video here.

Why Van Halen Didn't Fake New Live Album

(Classic Rock) Eddie Van Halen was happy to release the band's first live album with David Lee Roth complete with mistakes - because that's how the show was heard on the night. The guitar legend has previously discussed how Roth was left to choose from over 150 concert recordings before settling on the one made at Tokyo Dome in 2013. Now Van Halen tells Guitar World: That's also why we decided to keep the recording completely live. There are mistakes. "After it was mixed I listened to a few parts and went, Okay, I f***ed that up.' [laughs] But that's how it sounded that night, so we just left it. It's like a photograph of that evening, and we didn't Photoshop it. We did nothing. When you fix parts or mistakes, it's not a real live experience anymore."
