Ozzy is Done Touring

Well, the time has come.  Looks like Ozzy’s health issues are too much for him, and he’s announced he’s done with concerts.  Given his health issues the last few years, and covid, Parkinsons and all that…   He’s canceled all pending concert dates, issuing the following statement.  I’ve seen Ozzy a ton of times both solo and in Black Sabbath.  Time waits for no man. We knew this was coming.  But it’s sad now that the moment’s arrived.

“This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans.  As you may all know, four years ago, this month, I had a major accident, where I damaged my spine.

My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. My singing voice is fine.  However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak.

I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really FUCKS ME UP, more than you will ever know.

Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way. My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.

I want to thank my family……my band…….my crew……my longtime friends, Judas Priest, and of course, my fans for their endless dedication, loyalty, and support, and for giving me the life that I never ever dreamed I would have.

I love you all…”

    Ozzy, I want to thank you for touching my life. Your songs have brought me joy, introspection, gotten me through some really tough times and have brought me out to the other side! I wish you many blessings in your life from here on! Thank you, so very, very much!!

    Thanks for everything Ozzy, especially for the soundtrack of my entire life from the time I was three years old.
    Your music with Sabbath has long been something of a religion to me. We love you too. All the best for your family. It is now time for you to rest and enjoy everything you’ve built.
