Ozzy Osbourne is still recovering from major surgery and dealing with complications from PRKN 2, but it appears he is still determined to return to the live stage. According to The Sun, the frontman is even considering the possibility of performing in a wheelchair.
Someone who is said to be a friend of the singer told The Sun the following:
“Ozzy is refusing to give up on his hope of getting on stage despite his statement last month. He has declared: ‘I am gonna fucking get back on stage.’ He still has issues with his balance and cannot stand unaided for long periods of time on his legs. It frustrates him that doing a full-90 minute show, filled with his famous stage stomping and crowd interactive moves, is off the table. But he is considering doing gigs in a throne, like what Axl did in 2016 with Guns N’ Roses. He was really impressed by that move. And he feels Phil [Collins] showed that audiences do resonate with you.
Ozzy worries that he may not be able to sit still, which could be challenging. But there is talk of bringing in some special effects and even stage machinery to have the chair move around. He feels a lot of options are on the table, but Oz is not ruling out Vegas or L.A. runs.
That is Ozzy’s determination. However, Sharon is concerned about her husband being put through a heavy duty work load around gigs. Firstly, she has deep concerns about his balance and wants him to get back to walking properly, before even discussing comebacks. And she is particularly worried about him losing his balance and suffering injuries. Oz has spoken too about Sharon’s fears of his Parkinson’s condition prompting him to suffer falls like Michael J Fox.”
