Ozzy Osbourne‘s health is proving to be an issue once again as he confirms his “No More Tours” North American shows are being cancelled.
After re-scheduling the tour numerous times, the dates have finally been cancelled as he prepares to head to Europe for additional treatments.
The North American dates were set to see Marilyn Manson opening after being rescheduled back in November.
Ozzy cancelling the tour is a decision being made to accommodate fans who have already had to adjust their plans numerous times already.
The Prince Of Darkness is still going ahead with promotional obligations for his upcoming record Ordinary Man which arrives this Friday, Feb. 21. After that, he’ll be heading to Europe for additional treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” Osbourne says in a statement. “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 will be available for everyone with tickets at the point of purchase. Additionally, ticket holders will have first access to newly announced tickets whenever the next tour is announced.
We’re wishing the best for Ozzy as he continues his road to recovery.
