Ozzy Osbourne has once again postponed his European tour, marking the second time the Black Sabbath singer has done so following a series of health issues.
Ozzy initially scrapped his entire 2019 schedule earlier this year, as he recovered from surgery to repair an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The European leg of his “No More Tours 2” trek was then rescheduled for January through March 2020, with the North American dates set to follow in May 2020.
Ozzy posted a video on his social media accounts on Wednesday (October 9th) in which he announced the postponement of the 2020 European tour and addressed his health status.
He said in part, “I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again. But you’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient. I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready . . . when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be one hundred percent ready to come out and knock your f**king socks off.”
Ozzy told us a while back that the demand to see him live actually got bigger as the years went on: [“As we get older, we get more work. In the old days, you’d do, like, a three week tour, and take six months off, you know? It was a luxury. Now, it’s like a job.”] SOUNDCUE (:08 OC: . . . like a job.)
According to Live Nation Sweden, the new European tour dates will now take place “in the first half of 2021.” The American dates remain in place for now.
