Two years ago Ozzy Osbourne announced that he was doing one last round of touring, and so started the “No More Tours 2” Tour. However after the 2018 dates were successful the 2019 dates we postponed to this year as Ozzy had recurring health issues. But we expected that because he’s not a youngster.
Then less a month ago the bombshell was dropped. The Prince Of Darkness was battling Parkinson’s disease. Of course this wasn’t going to stop him from releasing a new studio album and finishing the tour – or would it?
Just announced tonight via Facebook that TOUR DATES ARE CANCELLED. Here’s the official statement:
OZZY’s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow OSBOURNE to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new ORDINARY MAN album (out February 21), OSBOURNE will head to Europe for additional treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” OSBOURNE said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.
“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”
Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticketholders who purchased “No More Tours 2” tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.
So it looks like Ozzy‘s last tour happened in 2018 unless the treatment can get him back to being able to tour. Time will tell but at least we’ll have new music from Ozzy Osbourne when Ordinary Man hits on February 21st.
