Ozzy Osbourne is getting ready for a long goodbye.

The legendary "Prince of Darkness" announced the "No More Tours 2" schedule (a sequel to 1992's "No More Tours" shows) on Tuesday, and the tour will take him around the world until 2020.

"I've been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers," Osbourne, 69, said in making the announcement from his Los Angeles home. "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 tour will start in May in Mexico, before heading to South America, Europe and Russia. It hits North America on Aug. 30 in Allentown, Pa. More dates will be added, extending the tour into 2020. So far, there's no show planned in Pittsburgh. Though he'll be saying goodbye to world tours, Ozzy still plans to perform select live shows in the future, according to a news release.

Ozzy began his career 50 years ago as lead singer of Black Sabbath, which formed in 1968. He went solo in 1979, after being forced out of Black Sabbath. He reunited with most of the original members of Sabbath in 2012, and toured with them until 2017.

Tickets for the North American dates go on sale Feb. 17 at livenation.com .
