OZZY OSBOURNE, ONCE AGAIN, POSTPONES EUROPEAN TOUR DATES
Ozzy Osbourne has posted a video on his official website explaining that his European tour dates, have once again been postponed.
He states, “I’m here to give you an update on my condition. As you probably know, or you may not know, at the beginning of this year, I had a bad fall. I screwed all the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery. I’ve got a lot more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car.”
He continued, “I’m not dying, I am recovering — it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I’m bored stiff of being stuck on a f–king bed all day. I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again, but you’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient. I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready.”
He added, “I’m not retiring — I’ve still got gigs to do — but when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be one hundred percent ready to come out and knock your fucking socks off. And also, there’s a new album on the way.”
Osbourne thanked his band, crew, promoters Live Nation and Judas Priest who have been on to support the Prince of Darkness in Europe when he’s ready. He added in true Ozzy fashion, “I just wanna say one thing to the fans: I sincerely thank you for your patience and your loyalty. I love you. Now, will you f–k off and let me get better.”
