Musician thanks fans for their patience
Ozzy tour has to be postponed again
The tour of Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest has to be postponed several times. Now there will be no concerts by the “Prince of Darkness” in the coming year either. In a statement, the 72-year-old thanks his fans and colleagues for their continued patience.
It’s not the first time Ozzy Osbourne has had to postpone his tour. In 2019 and 2020, the musician’s poor health was the reason, and then there was also a pandemic. Now the concerts planned for the beginning of 2022 will be canceled again for this very reason and rescheduled for spring 2023.
Ozzy Osbourne explains in a statement: “Due to the continuing uncertainty with regard to fully used arenas and the still complicated travel logistics in large parts of Europe, we have made the difficult decision to postpone my tour from 2022 to 2023.” The 72-year-old thanks not only his fans for their patience and support, but also the band Judas Priest, which is supposed to accompany the “Prince of Darkness” on his tour.
Osbournes’ new album entitled “Ordinary Man” was released in February of last year. At that time, the old rocker had to “continue to recover from various health problems,” as it was said.
“He only needs a stage”
In April 2019, he had postponed all the shows of the year, including five concerts planned in Germany. In addition, the following autumn he completely canceled a European tour planned for 2020. Osbourne had pneumonia and was seriously injured in a fall in his home. In January 2020, he announced in a TV interview that he suffered from Parkinson’s.
But the former frontman of the band Black Sabbath doesn’t want to be stopped by that. “It’s just one more thing that I have to deal with,” he explained in the conversation. His wife Sharon jokingly added that her husband “always had a funny walk”. “We don’t want to do anything differently,” she emphasized. “He doesn’t need pity. He just needs a stage.”[display-posts orderby="rand"]
