Bad news about Ozzy Osbourne

On Wednesday, Ozzy Osbourne shared the devastating news that his No More Tours II tour will have to be canceled on Twitter.

The 74-year-old stated, before going into depth about his health and his decision to retire from the stage, “This is perhaps one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to communicate with my dedicated fans.”

“You may all be aware that I had a serious accident this month, four years ago, in which I fractured my spine. My sole goal all this time has been to return to the stage. My vocal range is excellent. My body is still weak physically despite three operations, stem cell therapies, countless physical therapy sessions, and most recently, the ground-breaking Cybernetics (HAL) treatment “The musician wrote.

Continuing, he said, “Believe me when I tell that the prospect of disappointing my followers seriously F**** ME UP, more than you would ever know. I never would have thought that my days of traveling would come to an end in this manner.

Using the phrase “ideas for where I will be able to play without having to travel from city to city and nation to country,” Sharon Osbourne’s husband alluded to the potential of a residency.

The No More Tours II tour was previously announced in 2017, but it was repeatedly delayed because of Covid’s illness as well as other factors.

Ozzy has been candid about his health struggles during this time, discussing his 2020 Parkinson’s diagnosis as well as his ongoing desire to resume playing, telling People Magazine: “I am determined to get back on stage even if I have to be nailed to a board and wheeled on.”

He confirmed in May 2022 that he was having neck surgery, and Sharon stated that the outcome will “define the rest of his life.”

He had the procedure in June 2022 and reported that his recovery went well.

He showed his fans at the Commonwealth Games’ closing ceremony in his hometown of Birmingham that he was determined to perform in August 2022.

Ozzy rejoined his Black Sabbath comrades unexpectedly for the performance, and audiences were in awe of his ability to put on a show.

One pleased fan stated on Twitter that “Ozzy Osbourne’s ability to stand up *and* perform is the greatest monument to the power of Birmingham,” and another added that “Seeing Ozzy Osbourne grin has made my evening You could sense how much it meant to him to finish out the event.”

Let’s hope the legendary rock artist discovers a means to resume his or her performances.
