Ozzy Osbourne has prompted fresh concerns for his health after pushing back the start of his rescheduled tour.
The rocker announced plans to pick up his No More Tours 2 trek in January (20), after he was forced to scrap all 2019 dates following a terrible fall at his home, which dislodged metal rods fitted in his spine to correct an injury from a 2003 all-terrain vehicle accident.
But the stalled European leg of the tour has been put on ice as Ozzy continues to recover.
“I’ve postponed my European tour because I’m not ready,” Osbourne said in a video posted to Facebook. “I’m not dying. I am recovering, but it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would.”
The former Black Sabbath star then joked he has “more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car”, adding, “I’m bored stiff. I’ve been stuck on a f**king bed all day. I can’t wait to get off my a** and get going again. But you’re just going to have to be a bit more patient.”
It’s not all doom and gloom for Ozzy’s fans – his rescheduled North American dates are set to go ahead as planned, beginning in May (20).
Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, recently addressed reports suggesting her husband wouldn’t live to see Christmas, revealing she was “appalled” by one tabloid story.
“I’m actually not lost for words a lot, as you all know, but why do people just say this was true? How cold and callous are those headlines? Where’s people’s empathy?” she said on her U.S. daytime show The Talk last week (03Oct19). “I’ve been open with everyone and so has Ozzy. He had a terrible, terrible bout of bad luck with his health, one thing after another. And then after his fall that he had, it’s been awful for him. But he’s getting better. He’s recuperating… Ozzy ain’t going nowhere.”
Last month, Ozzy, 70, told The Sun he had completed work on a new solo album – his first since 2010’s Scream.
