With almost five decades in the music industry, Black Sabbath is reportedly all set to perform their final tour come 2016.

According to the band's guitarist, Tony Iommi, he can no longer play with the band, given how they have all aged since the started in 1968.

According to Birmingham Mail, the English rock band has agreed to perform their final road shows in 2016.

And while he would still love to perform and play music, Toni Iommi, who is a lymphoma survivor, explained that his age will no longer allow him to do such rigorous tasks.

"I can't actually do this anymore," Iommi said. "My body won't take it much more."

But while his health has certainly caused him to retire, Iommi assured fans that Black Sabbath is not going to just retire without a band.

"I don't want that creeping back again. And all the travelling involved in Sabbath tours increasingly takes its toll. That's why we're going out on one last tour, to say our farewells.

And while many of their avid fans are hoping that the band could come up with a new album as well, it seemed like that's not going to happen given Iommi's condition.

"And then it very definitely is the end," he said of Black Sabbath's last tour. "We won't be doing it again."

And to not further disappoint their fans Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne is reportedly going to come up with his new solo album for next year.

According to Blabbermouth, Epic Records president Sylvia Rhone, Osbourne is actively gearing up for his album, which is expected to be a "special release."

"It's going to be a really special album," Rhone teased of Osbourne's new album. "It's going to be amazing, it's something Ozzy has never done before that he's always wanted to do."
