Ozzy Osbourne’s concert in Hungary on 17 May has been cancelled, and the singer is unlikely to embark on a traditional tour again, according to the announcement.
It is hardly a surprise that Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his European tour, as he is still not physically fit enough to perform. The May 17 performance in Hungary will also be cancelled, and the singer is unlikely to embark on a traditional tour ever again.
Ozzy Osbourne has scheduled his first European tour for 2019. The three-year postponement was partly due to the pandemic. But the main reason was that the singer had been suffering from a series of health problems for years, so the tour would not have gone ahead anyway.
On his Facebook page, he wrote:
“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.
He claims that his singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions and the latest groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, his 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 F*CKS ME UP, more than you will ever know.”
Ozzy’s team is currently coming up with ideas for venues where he can perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.
According to eu.usatoday.com, Osbourne previously canceled tour dates in Europe and North America in 2019 due to health problems, including a “bad fall” in which he said he injured a number of vertebrae in his neck. The singer announced in 2020 that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a nervous system disorder that affects movement.
The decision will certainly mark the end of Ozzy’s touring career, wrote shockmagazin.hu. Ozzy was due to perform at the Budapest Arena on 17 May as part of the recent Patient Number 9 album tour with Judas Priest.
