Ozzy Osbourne’s Health Woes Continue; Shows Canceled in Australia, New Zealand and Japan
Official press release:
“Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has announced that he will now cancel shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. This follows news of the postponement of the entire UK and European leg of his ‘NO MORE TOURS 2′ tour on doctors’ orders.
“‘Ozzy recently developed pneumonia and has spent some time in hospital. Thankfully he is now through the worst part,’ says Sharon Osbourne. ‘His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel.’”
Ozzy, who turned seventy this past December, has been plagued by health issues since last year, when a staph infection caused the cancelation of several U.S. dates. Then, earlier this month, Osbourne was hospitalized with what at the time was being reported as a “very bad case” of the flu, leading to the cancelation of his entire U.K./European tour.
We’ll keep you updated as the story develops. In the meantime, everyone blast one of Ozzy’s many anti-retirement anthems today. If enough of people do it, maybe he’ll hear it and it will revive him, Tinkerbell-style.
