Artist cancels tour for second time
Ozzy Osbourne has canceled all 2020 North American No More Tours 2 tour dates to allow the rock star 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 due February 21st, Osbourne will head to Europe for additional treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks,” Osbourne shares.
He continues, “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.
This is the second time Osbourne has canceled the tour. Last year, he was forced off the road after having neck surgery to correct an old injury that he aggravated early last year.
Last month, Osbourne announced he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2003. He tells the LA Times, “I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read, ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.'”
Osbourne has also unveiled that he takes medication for tremors which can cause short-term memory loss.
