Ozzy Osbourne tour rebooked for 2022

Sharon Osbourne has confirmed that Ozzy Osbourne’s UK tour has been rebooked for 2022.

Originally set to begin last January, the series was initially rescheduled to this fall while the rocker recovered from surgery and injuries he experienced last year, but the pandemic forced another change to the schedule.

Promoting their work with The Prince’s Trust in a new interview with the UK’s Planet Rock, Ozzy said: “When they do get the vaccine and people do start going (to gigs), can you imagine how many tours are going to be out at once?!”

The anticipated return of the live music industry will see promoters struggle to find available venues.

“Well that’s the thing right now,” replied Sharon. “No, honestly, you got it right because everybody's booking their tours again for like 2022, and to find availabilities right now, it's crazy! Agents and facilities are going nuts, trying to get everybody back. It will be exciting. I think it will be a very exciting time when bands do go back and it'll be joyous.”

“Ozzy’s tour has been rebooked,”
she continued. “The British tour, he'll be back in (20)22. You know, we just carry on as normal. We've been doing loads of TV shows here and you've got to just keep going until Ozzy can go back live. He’s in the studio right now doing a new album! We're going to do a movie of Ozzy's life story and he's got to do the soundtrack to that… so I’ll keep him busy, let's put it that way!”

No details have been released yet regarding the singer’s new 2022 schedule.

Earlier this year, Ozzy scored his highest-charting solo album in the UK ever with his latest effort, “Ordinary Man”, when the project debuted at No. 3; the rocker has previously had two No. 1 albums in the country with Black Sabbath.
