Ozzy Osbourne's touring career is done
The singer has cancelled his upcoming farewell tour due to poor health
According to Ozzy Osbourne, in a statement released on social media, his touring career is over as he is no longer physically capable. The 74-year-old says he damaged his spine four years ago in a major accident and cannot take on the travel required for a tour anymore. May was set to be the start of his farewell European and UK tour.
Osbourne says in the statement:
"My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak."
As a result of the initial spinal injury, Osbourne postponed his 2019 tour, saying that he was "honestly humbled by the way you've all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time."
Several health setbacks have beset the singer in the last few years, including the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in January 2020, the contracting of Covid-19 in April 2022, and the surgery two months later.
The Osbourne team is "currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country."
Lastly, he thanked everyone "for their endless dedication, loyalty, and support, and for giving me the life that I never ever dreamed I would have."

The Osbourne team is "currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country." Shitty hologram tour or zoom concerts incoming...
It makes me sad that Ozzy will never be allowed to just chill, relax, and enjoy the twilight years of his life in peace.
Kinda sad. Just stay home dude.
Legend. Enjoy retirement with the grandkids.
I saw him at Ozzfest 2000 and it was time to retire then
Should have retired and enjoyed his final years in peace decades ago, but (((Sharon))) would never let it happen.
Lyme disease is nothing. How about you carry Sheetrock every day for 10 years and see what kind of chronic back pain you have. Is your Lyme disease bullshit gonna cause you to start getting legit oxys from the dr? You gonna fruitlessly visit chiropractors for years? Your Lyme disease ain't nothing compared to what real men deal with every day
^who the f*ck let gramps in here
First Brady, now this….. f*ck YEAH!!!!
word of advice my greasy friend xDon'tDoDrugs!x
needs a refill on his bat-juice. then he'll be good to go
its already been said a million times. Sharon needs to stop milking it and let this dude rest in peace holy shit. You know not a single word in that statement actually came from Ozzy. He doesn't want to get back on stage. The dude's been shot for at least a decade already.
I bet he's vaxxed…just sayin'
He's a living science experiment. What 50 years of hard drinking, drug abuse, and complete neglect for a healthy lifestyle look like. In other words live your life completely opposite of him.
I remember when he did his "No More Tours" farewell tour...in 1992. Seriously. Then Kiss did their "final" tour a year later.
A reliable source told me he had to quit because he overdosed on dick and ruined his voice.
Randy Rhoads > Zakk Wylde
Jake E Lee > Randy Rhodes and Zak Milde
Looks like we may have bats returning to our concert venues since their exterminator is no longer touring.
Saw him with the original sabbath and solo with zakk. Pretty cool stuff.
Alright now! Won't you listen?
Iommi > Rhodes > Lee > Wylde
Iommi is Sabbath.
Joan Osbourne >
Alright but what does Ja Rule have to say?? WHERE IS JA?!
Crazy 74 years old we'll probably never get to see an artist these days accomplish this or even come close to touring as long as OZZY did cause all the drugs are tainted nowadays thanks gen z lol
Shit ass headline
They will be moving back to the US, living in Vegas so Ozzy can do a long-term residency until he calls it quits or dies.
Never say never
^^^The bot's stories are getting more and more elaborate.
May he sheetrock in hell
anonymous 10 hours ago Alright now! Won't you listen? This made me laugh way harder than it should have
All good things come to end. Ozzy we all salute you and listen to your music . You gave all of us as fans alot of joy. Getting old sucks. That is life unfortunately. Enjoy your time relaxing with your family. Cheers to you 😊
What's left for Sharon to milk now?
