Ozzy Osbourne cancels North American tour

Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his rescheduled North American as he continues 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, the rocker will head to Europe for additional treatments.

I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a s**t year,” says Osbourne. “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.”

The North American series was scheduled to start May 27 in Atlanta, GA.

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.

Osbourne recently confirmed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2003, and he continues treatment for that as well as a series of injuries and surgeries he underwent in 2019.

The singer will release his first album in a decade, “Ordinary Man”, on February 21.
