The Statement:
The forthcoming Ozzy Osbourne/Judas Priest Dates for 2022 Have Been Postponed. “Due to the ongoing uncertainty with full capacity events and travel logistics in much of Europe, we have come to the difficult decision to postpone my 2022 tour to 2023. Original tickets remain valid for the new dates. I want to thank all of you and Judas Priest for your continued patience and support.” OZZY
