  SHARON OSBOURNE TO RETIRE FROM SHOWBIZ AFTER THE X FACTOR
23rd September 2013

sharon osbourne



Sharon Osbourne has sensationally revealed that she is retiring from showbiz to be a full-time grandmother.

The 60-year-old manager of husband Ozzy Osbourne and X Factor judge will retire after the hit series at the end of the year and return to Los Angeles to settle into an OAP lifestyle with Ozzy, 64.

Sharon is also keen to dediacte time to help son Jack, 27, who was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Sharon was heartbroken when Jack and wife Lisa Stelly, also 27, announced she had suffered a miscarriage earlier this month.

She also wants to spend more time with her 16-month-old granddaughter, Jack's girl Pearl, and "put her feet up," say friends quoted in the Daily Mirror.

Sharon and Ozzy are apparently buying a new home which the pair are describing as their retirement home where they can enjoy their family and fortune.

A source close to Sharon revealed to the Sunday People: "She is ready to retire, give up the showbiz world and lead a quiet life.

"She is relishing the idea that she will be able to spend all the time in the world with her little granddaughter Pearl.

"Sharon was devastated about the loss of Jack and Lisa's baby.

"She and Ozzy have had a tough year and realise how working in different countries has put a strain on their marriage."

Comments from the Black Sabbath camp recently have indicated that the current tour will be the very final one and this decision by Sharon and Ozzy appears to reinforce that.

As Ozzy's manager for many years now - it was Sharon who rescued Ozzy from obscurity after he first left Sabbath in 1979 - it is hard to see how he can continue without his wife's involvement and it now looks like the end is nigh for one of the most charismatic, long standing and eventful careers in rock.

We wish Sharon (and Ozzy) well for the future and hope it is a long and extremely happy one.





WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
