Ozzy Osbourne Postpones 2020 European Tour

Ozzy Osbourne has postponed his 2020 European tour. Despite this, his rescheduled North American tour is expected to continue as planned. This news comes after the singer previously postponed all of his 2019 dates due to injury. While dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia, the he fell in his Los Angeles home and aggravated previous injuries he sustained in his 2003 ATV accident.

Osbourne said the following:

“I’m here to give you an update on my condition. As you probably know, or you may not know, at the beginning of this year, I had a bad fall. I screwed all the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery. I’ve got a lot more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car.

I’m not dying, I am recovering — it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I’m bored stiff of being stuck on a fucking bed all day. I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again. But you’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient.

I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready. I’m not retiring — I’ve still got gigs to do — but when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be one hundred percent ready to come out and knock your fucking socks off. And also, there’s a new album on the way.

Thank you to my band and my crew and Live Nation, and most of all Judas Priest.

I just wanna say one thing to the fans: I sincerely thank you for your patience and your loyalty. I love you. Now, will you fuck off and let me get better.”

Ozzy Osbourne Finishes New Album

During a recent interview with The Sun, Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he has completed work on a new album. The nine-track effort will be the singer’s first since 2010’s “Scream.”

Osbourne said his recent collaboration with Post Malone got the creative juices flowing:

“I’d never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song ‘Take What You Want’, so I did and then one thing led to another. I started recording a new album with Post Malone’s producer Andrew Watt. It’s only nine tracks, but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.

If it wasn’t for making this record, I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here forever.’ I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album, I thought I was dying. But that got me off my arse.”

He also added:

“This is my first recording in a studio for 10 years, so I do feel a bit out of touch.

Music goes straight online these days and that’s quicker than it takes me to write a text. It’s all about downloads and streaming now. What the fuck does that mean? What’s Spotify? I thought it was a skin problem where you woke up Spotified.

The album was all finished in four weeks. I said to Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”
