Thousands hoping to see the Prince of Darkness on tour this year will now be left out in the dark. Ongoing health issues have forced Ozzy Osbourne to call off his No More Tours II outing once again.
Osbourne, now 71, was slated to hit the road with Marilyn Manson this spring. He will now receive medical treatment in Switzerland shortly before the tour’s set launch, forcing him to cancel the stretch to allow for recovery.
“Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks. 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,” Osbourne shared in a statement. He added that fans who purchased tickets will receive a refund but are promised first access to tickets for his eventual North American return.
The British rocker has been plagued by a myriad of health issues over the last year, most notably a battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He previously postponed the No More Tours II tour last spring citing a bout with pneumonia and injuries sustained from a fall at his home last year.
While he may not be able to tour, Ozzy is still keeping his career alive. His latest album Ordinary Man will drop February 21 and sees him collaborate with the likes of Elton John, Slash, Post Malone and Travis Scott.
