Ozzy Osbourne declared he was done performing following back surgery and postponed all of his events.
Parkinson’s disease, which the 74-year-old singer was identified with four years ago, is one of many medical issues he is coping with.
Originally slated to start in May 2019, Ozzy’s European tour was later delayed to 2021 and 2022 before being completely canceled.
Inglewood, California’s “No More Tours II: Ozzfest” festival featured his final performance, which took place in December 2018.
The well-known frontman of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, issued an apology to his Instagram followers on Wednesday.
He expressed regret that he wouldn’t be able to take part in the upcoming tour dates because of complications from a severe spinal injury he suffered four years ago.
Ozzy referred to it as “one of the most difficult things” he has ever had to communicate, explaining that despite regaining his singing voice, his body is still too weak following three operations and different therapies like stem cell therapy and Cybernetics (HAL) Therapy.
He continued by expressing his regret over not being able to make the necessary trips for live performances, even though he acknowledged and appreciated their patience.
Ozzy made a moving speech to his fans in which he said that the thought of disappointing them hurts him more than they can imagine.
Ozzy had spinal surgery in 2019 and was informed that he might be permanently disabled, which resulted in a decline in his health.
The situation was made worse by the fact that he was later given a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis and suffered a bad fall that exacerbated neck damage from an ATV accident in 2003.
Ozzy expressed his gratitude to those closest to him, including his family, bandmates, crew members, lifelong friends Judas Priest, and devoted fans who had given him a life he could never have imagined, realizing that his days of touring the globe were numbered.
There was a request for refunds at the point of purchase for those who had bought tickets for upcoming performances.
To repair the damage brought on by a quad bike accident 17 years prior, Ozzy Osbourne underwent two spine surgeries in 2017. He was left with 15 screws in his back and severe nerve pain throughout his entire body.
