Ozzy Osbourne cancelled his No More Tours 2 back in February in favor of heading to Switzerland to begin a new Parkin's II treatment. Which ultimately worked out, considering No More Tours 2 would've been cancelled due to COVID-19 about a month later anyway.

During the The Blizzard of Ozz Special: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Blizzard of Ozz special, Ozzy told Jenn he doesn't see himself hitting the road again until 2022. Osbourne attributed the delay not to his health, but to the world's inability to get a grip on the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I never really thought about [if my opinion on COVID-19 matters]. I'm just Ozzy. My wife calls me Ozzy. I'm just Ozzy. I'm just here. The only good thing about this pandemic, I couldn't work anyway, because of my injuries. I'm hoping that I'll be booking 2022, I think. To be honest with you, I don't think it's gonna get ship shape until the end of next year. I think this winter is gonna be fucking bad, because you're gonna have the flu. People are, 'I'm not taking the flu shot.' You know what? You can give me anything, but I'm not gonna be number one on that fucking new vaccine. I don't know want to be the first one to wake up with a set of fucking antlers in the morning."

Ozzy revealed he'd been battling Parkin's II, a form of Parkinson's Disease, back in 2019. In an 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 overall 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."
