OZZY OSBOURNE CANCELS HIS EUROPEAN TOUR AND SAYS HE IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY “WHERE I WILL BE ABLE TO PERFORM WITHOUT HAVING TO TRAVEL FROM CITY TO CITY AND COUNTRY TO COUNTRY”

The following is statement from Ozzy Osbourne:

“This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans. As you may all know, four years ago, this month, I had a major accident, where I damaged my spine.

My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak.

I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really F-CKS ME UP, more than you will ever know.

Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way. My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.

I want to thank my family……my band…….my crew……my longtime friends, Judas Priest, and of course, my fans for their endless dedication, loyalty, and support, and for giving me the life that I never ever dreamed I would have.

I love you all…”

Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.

Osbourne initially postponed his entire 2019 schedule as he recovered from surgery to repair an injury sustained while dealing with a bout of pneumonia. The tour was postponed a second time after he continued to deal with health issues following a fall in his Los Angeles home. That fall “aggravated years-old injuries” from an ATV accident that occurred in 2003. The tour was pushed back a third time in October 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Three years ago, the singer revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

“It’s PRKN 2,” said his wife, Sharon [Osbourne] recounted in an exclusive interview with Robin Roberts for Good Morning America. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day…”

… [Ozzy added], “I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore ’cause it’s like I’m running out of excuses, you know?”

Ozzy’s latest album, Patient Number 9, has been nominated four Grammy awards. The Prince of Darkness’ 13th studio recording is nominated in following categories:  Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for Patient Number 9, featuring Jeff Beck and Best Metal Performance for Degradation Rules, featuring his Black Sabbath bandmate, Tony Iommi.

GHOST ANNOUNCE SPECIAL ONE NIGHT ONLY EXHIBIT AT THE WHISKY A GO GO IN WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA

Sweden’s Ghost, with their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks, have announced the first ever pop-up event from Metal Myths, the esteemed show that explores the histories and mysteries of the world’s most extreme bands.

For one night only on February 1st at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California, Metal Myths Presents: Ghost – Reverence & Resurrection will pay unique and extensive tribute to the classic 1969 era of Ghost, a band that didn’t actually form until some four decades later.

From 4 p.m. until well into the evening, fans will have the rare opportunity to behold and worship artifacts from the short-lived but massively influential 1969 iteration of the band. Long unseen and never before publicly displayed, these artifacts will include:

* Ghost’s 1969 costumes and ghoul masks on the very same Whisky A Go Go stage where the band performed its now-legendary September 13th, 1969 show.

* Rare magazine covers, the only surviving remnants of the mainstream music press coverage of Ghost from that era.

* A veritable treasure trove of ephemera on display for the first and possibly only time.

Ghost – Reverence & Resurrection will also offer attendees the opportunity to pick up exclusive merchandise and other surprises, including an advance chance to purchase the much-anticipated purple vinyl reissue of their 1969 seven-inch Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic, featuring Kiss The Go Goat and the song that would land them its first spot on the Billboard Hot 100 “decades” after its original release, Mary On A Cross.

For one day and one day only, Ghost’s legacy will be on display for all who wish to step back in time and walk through the history of this one-of-a-kind band.

Capacity is limited, so arriving early is highly recommended.

OVERKILL TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM “SCORCHED” ON APRIL 14TH, VISUALIZER FOR “THE SURGEON” UP FOR VIEWING

Overkill will release their twentieth studio album, Scorched, on April 14th through Nuclear Blast Records. The official the visualizer for the LP’s first single, The Surgeon, can be seen below.

Singer Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, “Man, it seems like for F-in ever since we chatted. Ha! I tell you what, this is the longest ever between Overkill releases, Feb ’19 to April ’23. For me, it became my ‘peterpandemic’ go-to. I wrote my part, tore it down, then again and again. I found myself still changing parts while Colin [Richardson] was mixing. It became the normal in a very abnormal time, sanity amongst the insanity. Somewhere in Scorched that is all reflected, a common thread, it is the place I went to get what I needed, maybe what ‘we’ needed. It’s different, that’s for sure an old-school approach/mix in a modern world….was it worth the wait? You tell me…….see ya on the road! Horns up.”

Scorched track listing:

1.  Scorched
2.  Goin’ Home
3.  The Surgeon
4.  Twist Of The Wick
5.  Wicked Place
6.  Won’t Be Comin Back
7.  Fever
8.  Harder They Fall
9.  Know Her Name
10. Bag O’ Bones
