According to the post shared by Ozzy Osbourne’s official Instagram page, his tour with Judas Priest has once again been postponed.
Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne has been struggling with several health issues since October 2018, which have interrupted his musical performances. It was announced that Ozzy Osbourne would embark on his farewell tour, ‘No More Tours 2,’ around North America, South America, and Europe in 2018. In October 2018, Osbourne canceled his remaining four shows on the North American tour due to his hand surgery.
Later on, in January 2019, Ozzy Osbourne suffered from pneumonia and had to postpone all shows of the European leg of the ‘No More Tours 2.’ His condition got serious, and he was hospitalized for weeks. However, his health problems followed one another. He then fell in his home in April 2019 and needed to go through spine and neck surgeries.
In January 2020, Osbourne publicly revealed that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2003. He canceled all North American dates and decided to rest for a while. The worldwide coronavirus pandemic also emerged a few months later, which has severely affected all aspects of our lives.
Fans have been excitedly waiting for an announcement considering the ‘No More Tours 2’ and Ozzy’s recent Instagram post gave some bittersweet news. Osbourne stated in his post that he is worried about the conditions of the pandemic, and he would prefer touring in a safer period.
Thus, the Prince of Darkness has decided to postpone his concert dates from 2022 to 2023. Although the European tour dates were postponed, Osbourne said that the original tickets are still valid for the rescheduled shows.
Osbourne’s Instagram post read:
“Due to the ongoing uncertainty with full capacity events and travel logistics in much of Europe, we have come to the difficult decision to postpone my 2022 tour to 2023. Original tickets remain valid for the new dates. I want to thank all of you and Judas Priest for your continued patience and support.”
