Just days after rescheduling his postponed dates from the “No More Tours 2”, Ozzy Osbourne has canceled his North American tour dates.
Ozzy cites continued health issues as the reason for the cancellations.
Currently the European dates are still planned.
The former Black Sabbath singer has had more than his share of health issues in recent months. Last March Ozzy fell in his Los Angeles home that aggravated injuries sustained in a 2003 ATV accident and required surgery. As a result of the fall, Ozzy was forced to postpone his farewell tour concert dates. It is those dates that have again been canceled.
Further complicating his farewell tour plans was an upper respiratory infection that turned into pneumonia and resulted in the cancellation of the European tour dates.
Further complicating his recent health issues is a recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.
Noting that he has had a bad year, Ozzy said that he won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and once there the treatment will take six to eight weeks.
Speaking on his decision to cancel the tour Ozzy said, “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.”
Fans who have purchased tickets to canceled dates may obtain a refund from the site of purchase. The refund will include any fees incurred.
