Ozzy Osbourne has canceled his 2020 North American tour. The Prince of Darkness will use this time to seek medical treatment in Europe to help with his health ailments. The announcement comes shortly after his revelation that he’s battling Parkinson’s disease.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” Osbourne said in a statement. “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.”
Originally, the North American leg of his No More Tours 2 was set to start May 2019. This was later postponed after Osbourne fell at home, dislodging metal rods that were inserted in his body following an ATV accident years earlier.
For now, Osbourne still intends to embark on the European leg of his tour with Judas Priest.
You can still look forward to Osbourne’s new album, Ordinary Man, out this Friday.
We here at GENRE IS DEAD! wish Ozzy Osbourne a speedy recovery.
