Ozzy Osbourne has canceled his 2020 North American “No More Tours 2” to “recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year,” according to a post on his website.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” Osbourne said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.”
“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”
In January, Osbourne opened up about his diagnosis of Parkin 2, a milder form of Parkinson’s disease, which was discovered in the months after a fall he suffered early last year.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” the singer told Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts.
“There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s,” Ozzy’s manager and wife Sharon explained. “It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body.” Sharon described his condition as something that can manifest as a series of good days followed by a very bad one.
In that interview Ozzy still felt his desire to return to the road: “I ain’t done yet. I ain’t gonna go anywhere yet.”
The Price of Darkness’ forthcoming solo album Ordinary Man is expected to drop February 21st, with preorder bundles available here.
