Lately, it’s been a rough time health-wise for Ozzy Osbourne, and here we go again. His well-being has unfortunately affected the start of the European leg of his “No More Tours 2” farewell tour.
We got wind of this via an Instagram post by opening band Judas Priest who announced that that the first four shows have been postponed due to “Ozzy having a very bad case of flu.”
The Priest account said the following: “It is with great regret we have to announce that the first four UK shows on the Ozzy Osbourne/Judas Priest tour have been postponed due to Ozzy having a very bad case of flu – therefore Dublin, Nottingham, Manchester and Newcastle will be rescheduled at a later date – details to follow once finalized – we are very sorry that this has happened and to disappoint so many fans – we wish Ozzy well and look forward to the Glasgow, Birmingham and London shows together – and to the rescheduled ones in the future.”
As for rescheduling, there is no word yet on new dates for the four postponed shows.
This latest setback comes as Osbourne was getting over being sidelined toward the end of 2018 with three different staff infections in his right hand. At the time he explained to Rolling Stone that his right thumb swole up to “the size of a f*ckin’ light bulb.” Needing surgery to cut out the infection, Osbourne said: “Even with the numbing stuff, it was agony.”
Were all rooting for Ozzy here at Rock My World and hope the veteran rocker will be back on the road sooner rather than later.
