Ozzy Osbourne announced that he will not be able to return to the road on May 27 as planned for his farewell tour due to health issues.
Osbourne, who was recovering from a fall last year, revealed last month that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
“Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks,” he said Monday.
“Ozzy Osbourne’s 2020 North American ‘No More Tours 2’ has unfortunately been canceled to allow Osbourne to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year,” reads a statement published on the metal icon’s website.
The decision was made to accommodate fans who have been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times.
Following promotional obligations for his upcoming album Ordinary Man, which is scheduled to release on February 21, Osbourne will head to Europe for additional treatments.
He said he doesn’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans.
Ozzy promised his fans that they will get a refund now, and when the North American tour kicks off, “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.
