    Heavy metal's Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, announced on Thursday that his 2018 tour will feature a stop at the Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista in the Fall.

    Ozzy, who has sold more than 100 million records since getting his start in the 1960s, is, of course, known for fronting both Black Sabbath and one of the more unforgettable MTV reality-TV series of all-time, the Osbournes.

    No More Tours 2, a nightcap on the Prince of Darkness' five decades of touring, touches down at the MFA on Oct. 9 for a single night, with musical support from Stone Sour. According to a news release, this will be Osbourne's final tour, a status he shares with contemporaries Paul Simon and Elton John, who both announced recently that they were on their final runs of live shows as well.

    "I've been blessed with an amazing life,” Osbourne said in the release. "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 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee has played in San Diego in the past, including a solo show in 2007 at Sports Arena, as well as an appearance at the same venue with Black Sabbath on the Never Say Die! Tour in 1978 -- Osbourne's last full tour prior to the band's reunion nearly a decade later.
