Ozzy Osbourne has canceled his previously scheduled trip to Switzerland as the coronavirus pandemic continues to cripple the travel industry.
News of Ozzy’s trip cancellation was confirmed by his wife, Sharon, on her CBS daytime series, The Talk.
“We had to cancel our trip to Switzerland. We were meant to go on the 8th of April, but we had to cancel, for his treatment.”
The health of the Black Sabbath rocker has been nothing short of precarious in recent years: from the injury caused by a fall in the house last February to pneumonia, Parkinson’s disease, publicly shared a few months ago, but which he has been suffering from since 2003 .
‘The remaining exclusive merchandise from my past tours is now available online,’ writes Ozzy on Twitter. ‘April is the month #ParkinsonsAwarenessMonth therefore 10% of the proceeds from ALL sales will go directly to @MichaelJFoxOrg for research on #Parkinsons (sic)’.
Clothing, books, posters and other accessories are available for sale.
The ‘Back to the Future’ star has been fighting the disease since 1991, but made it public in 1998. The rocker is afflicted by a variation of the disorder, called Parkin’s II, which is milder than the more progressive version of the debilitating neurological disease.
Osbourne was set to appear at SXSW 2020 in support of the world premiere screening of the two-hour documentary special, Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne. The documentary explores the career of Osbourne, and is set to air later this summer of A&E.
