Ozzy “Just Can’t Walk Much Now” and That Might Impact His 2023 Tour
At what point do our metal legends get to retire and take a fucking rest? It’s a question we should be seriously having in regards to Ozzy Osbourne, who just celebrated his 74th birthday back on December 3. After a long life of partying, rocking, and living on the road, the lifestyle has obviously affected his quality of life and it’s starting to make him worry about his plans for 2023.
In a recent interview with SiriusXM, the “Prince of Darkness” explained that his issues are predominantly physical after undergoing various procedures. He also notes that he still has his mental faculties, so that’s not the issue either.
“It is so fucking tough because, I mean, I want to be out there. I want to be doing it. This fucking surgery this guy did. Fucking hell, you have no idea. The thing is my head is all right, my creativity is OK, my singing OK but I just can’t fucking walk much now.6
“I can’t begin to tell you how fucking frustrating life has become. It is amazing how you go along in life and one stupid thing can screw everything up for a long time. I have never been ill this long in my life.”
Ozzy’s been dealing with neck and spine issues since an accident in 2019. He also endured severe staph infection in his thumb and was rushed to the hospital with a flu. To say his health issues have compounded over the years would be an understatement. He’s even gone so far, according to the Daily Mail, that he’s requested for a permit to install a “rehabilitation” wing to his mansion at Buckinghamshire.
As it stands right now, Ozzy is planning to tour all over Europe next May and June. Whether the dates below actually take place will ultimately depend on whether Ozzy’s capable of performing.
