OZZY Cancels No More Tours 2 North American Dates
Ozzy Osbourne has unfortunately cancelled his No More Tours 2. Osbourne has commented on the cancellation, saying he's headed to Switzerland instead to begin a new treatment that will take six to eight weeks.
"I'm so thankful that everyone has been patient because I've had a shit year," Osbourne said. "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."
Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticket holders who purchased No More Tours 2 tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.
No mentioned was made of the European dates scheduled with Judas Priest for later in the year.
Ozzy recently revealed he's been battling Parkin's II, a form of Parkinson's Disease, since 2003. In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Ozzy revealed he was first diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2003.
"I'm not dying from Parkinson's. I've been working with it most of my life," Ozzy told The Times. "I've cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read 'Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,' you wouldn't go, 'Oh, my God!' You'd go, 'Well, it finally caught up with him.'" Ozzy noted that the medication he takes for his tremors results in short term memory loss.
Ozzy was struggling with his health in 2019, as he suffered from both a bad bout of pneumonia and then re-awakened some old (and serious) injuries during a bad fall. Ozzy called 2019 "one of the most fucked-up years of my life."
But, Ozzy is moving forward and plans to release his new album, Ordinary Man on February 21. "It's been a pretty incredible, interesting career. People have written me off time and time again, but I kept coming back and I'm going to come back from this." The press releae regarding the cancellation of No More Tours 2 notes Osbourne will move forward with any promo associated with the album.
