Rock and roll star Ozzy Osbourne has canceled all of his shows for 2023 and says his time on tour is over.
He said Wednesday that his voice is fine, but that due to a spinal injury he suffered four years ago, “he is still physically weak”.
His recovery included three operations, stem cell treatments, physical therapy and Cybernics (HAL), robotic treatment. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2020.
“I am honestly touched by how you all have patiently held on to your tickets this whole time, but in good conscience I have now realized that I am not physically able to make my upcoming European/UK tour dates, because I know I could not cope with the necessary travel,” he wrote.
But all is not lost for his fans.
Osbourne said his team is thinking of ways to perform without having to travel so much. Those who purchased tickets to his show can receive a full refund, Osbourne said.
Osbourne is an original member of the band Black Sabbath and had a successful solo career which earned him a total of three Grammys and four lifetime achievement awards. Black Sabbath was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Their last tour was in 2018.
