Statement from OZZY OSBOURNE:

“This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans. As you may all know, four years ago, this month, I had a major accident, where I damaged my spine.

Ozzy Osbourne w Black Sabbath (2016) by KP

My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak.

I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really FUCKS ME UP, more than you will ever know.

Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way. My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.

I want to thank my family……my band…….my crew……my longtime friends, Judas Priest, and of course, my fans for their endless dedication, loyalty, and support, and for giving me the life that I never ever dreamed I would have.

I love you all…”

Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While this is terrible news to start the day with, I am sure that all of the Metal legions around the world want the very best of health for the legendary Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne. As you might have surmised from his words, this is also the end of his touring in the traditional sense as his team seeks to come up with another solution. I don’t know if this means a regional residency of more intimate shows or something virtual but I am sure the details will be revealed as they come up with something. As he mentioned his voice is stronger than ever and the two albums he has recently released have been very good and were well-received. I’m definitely glad to have seen him perform many times over the years and especially during the Black Sabbath reunion/farewell shows. One thing I would love to see happen is for him to be knighted by His Majesty King Charles III. I feel that he surely deserves the honor after such a career.
