Ozzy Osbourne cancels US tour to receive Parkinson’s treatment in Switzerland. The British heavy metal star apologised for cancelling 17 dates as he battles disease.
Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘No More Tours 2’ is no more, for now.
Osbourne has canceled his 2020 North American tour dates in order to seek additional medical treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a sh– year,” the rocker said in a statement.
“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,” he added.
After the Black Sabbath singer was set to begin the UK and European leg of the tour on January 2019 in Dublin and subsequently head to the UK for shows in Nottingham, Manchester and Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and London. However, he has had to pull the first four dates after coming down with the flu.
I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the US leg of my tour. It just seems that since last year, everything I touch has turned to s**t. First the staph infection in my thumb, the flu and bronchitis, now Parkinson.”
Additionally, Ozzy recently posted an image to social media showing a burst blood vessel in his eye as a result from coughing. He also suffered a hand infection that forced him off the road in North Americas last October.
