Ozzy Osbourne Postpones European Tour Dates to 2022

One cannot help but feel bad for Ozzy Osbourne. The Prince of Darkness finally opened up about his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis last year, which led to him canceling previously-rescheduled tour dates in order to seek medical treatment overseas. Then, of course, COVID-19 hit, ending all live music for the foreseeable future. Now, weeks after Sharon announced that an Ozzy tour is in the works in 2022, Ozzy’s European No More Tours 2 tour with Judas Priest has been once more postponed.

The tour will now take place in winter of 2022, three years after they were initially scheduled. Ozzy and Sharon have urged purchasers to hold onto their tickets, as they should remain valid for all rescheduled tour dates. Technically, this postponement is in keeping with Sharon’s claims earlier this month, when she said, “Ozzy’s tour has been rebooked. The British tour, he’ll be back in (20)22. You know, we just carry on as normal. We’ve been doing loads of TV shows here and you’ve got to just keep going until Ozzy can go back live. He’s in the studio right now doing a new album!”

“I really want to thank my fans for their loyalty and for waiting for me,” Ozzy said to fans“ Believe me, I can’t wait to see you all again. Please stay safe in these uncertain times. God Bless you All! Love Ozzy.”
