Ozzy Osbourne announces rescheduled tour dates following serious illness
Ozzy Osbourne has just announced rescheduled tour dates in the UK and Europe as part of his ‘No More Tours 2’ dates.
The news comes after Osbourne was forced to postpone the dates after he suffered serious health issues which left The Prince of Darkness fighting for his life in intensive care. Ozzy had been battling complications following a bout of flu and later developed bronchitis which forced him to be rushed to the hospital’s special unit.
Osbourne battled through the problems and returned home to continue his recovery and his son, Jack, said: “He’s doing really well. He’s good. He’s getting back on his feet, so he’s good,” Jack said while appearing on SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show.
“[Ozzy is] doing good. He’s back to being his cynical old self, [which] is always a good sign,” Jack added in a separate interview with People. “When he’s complaining about mundane things, you know he’s good. Yeah, he’s back to normal. When everything on TV sucks and everything in the house is broken, he’s in a good spot.”
Now, the metal icon has announced plans to return to the stage. The six-week trek kicks off in the UK on January 31st before wrapping March 16th in Zurich, Switzerland. The tour includes stops throughout the UK–Nottingham, Dublin, Manchester, Newcastle, London (The O2), Glasgow and OZZY’s Birmingham hometown–before heading to Europe for gigs in Germany, Finland, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, and Switzerland.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back to Europe for these shows,” Osbourne said. “Thank you to all the fans for sticking with me and waiting for the new dates to be announced. I can’t wait to see you all next year.”
