Bad news, Ozzy Osbourne fans. Again. For the second year in a row, the legendary Prince of Darkness has canceled a North American tour, this time due to “various health issues he has faced over the past year.” Osbourne’s 2020 tour included a July 1 show at Summerfest, which was already a make-up date for a 2019 Summerfest show. That show was canceled due to an “injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia.”
A post on Osbourne’s Facebook page explains the latest cancelation:
OZZY’s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow OSBOURNE to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new ORDINARY MAN album (out February 21), OSBOURNE will head to Europe for additional treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” OSBOURNE said. “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. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”
Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticketholders who purchased “No More Tours 2” tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.
Bummer. Get well soon, Ozzy. You rule.
