Ozzy Osbourne has confirmed that this will be his final year headlining his Ozzfest festival.

The veteran has been show closer on the rock revue, either as soloist or with Black Sabbath, since its inception in 1996. He will still appear on next year’s Ozzfest, though only at a few stops, according to Billboard.com.

“After 10 years, the Ozzfest’s name and reputation has been established,” said Ozzy. “It’s time for me to move on and do other things.”

Osbourne has suffered from unspecified throat problems during this year’s tour.
