hard rock legend Ozzy Osbourneannounced in February that he was canceling his 2023 UK and mainland European tour dates due to ill health.
Osbourne, 74, he has spinal problems and suffers from Parkinson’sand was recently photographed walking with a woman in Los Angeles.
In 2020, it was the same singer who revealed that he has Parkinson’s during an interview on Good Morning America. At that time she said that he could not continue to hide his health problems and that he was taking a “large amount” of medication to treat his chronic pain.
It all started when he suffered a fall and had to undergo surgery. After that, he had severe pain in his body.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us,” Ozzy explained when he was diagnosed with the disease. “It’s not a death sentence, but it does affect the nerves in your body. And it’s like you have a good day and then a really bad day,” he added.
At the time, the leader of Black Sabbath thanked his fans for all the love he has received, “They are my air, you know (…) I feel better. I have recognized the fact that I have a case of Parkinson’s. And I just hope they hold on and are there for me because I need them.”
Through a statement, Ozzy explained the reasons that led him to make the decision to cancel the tour: “This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans. As everyone knows, four years ago, this month, I had a serious accident in which I damaged my spine. My sole purpose during this time has been to return to the stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physiotherapy sessions and most recently the innovative Cybernics Treatment (HAL), my body is still physically weak.”
“I never would have imagined my touring days would have ended this way,” Osbourne said. “My team is currently brainstorming where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.”
