Ozzy Osbourne cancels 2020 tour to seek medical treatment

Tour 19/02/2020

Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to cancel the entire 2020 tour in order to seek additional medical treaments.

The ex-Black Sabbath singer says that he wouldn't be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes roughly six to eight weeks. "I'm so thankful that everyone has been patient because I've had a shit year."

Osbourne launched his No More Tours 2 trek back in April 2018. Unfortunately, the tour had been repeatedly postponed due to a series of health issues and injuries. Just earlier this year, the singer revealed that he has been battling Parkinson's disease for over seven years.

The Prince of Darkness hopes that he would be ready to resume his tour for his 27th May show in Atlanta. "If I'm well enough, I'll work towards it. I'm having physical therapy every day, five days a week. I'm trying, doing the best I can. Neck surgery's not easy."

"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," he continued. "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."

His first solo studio album, Ordinary Man, is due to hit the stores this Friday, 21st Feb. Listen to the title track here, featuring Elton John and Slash.
