Black Sabbath's Ozzy Osbourne Forced to Cancel Tour Due to Parkinson's Disease

Renowned musician and frontman of the legendary heavy metal band, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, has made a poignant announcement to his devoted fans. The 74-year-old rock icon has revealed that due to his ongoing struggle with Parkinson's disease, he has been forced to cancel his upcoming European and UK tour dates.

A Humbling Realization

In a heart-wrenching statement shared via Twitter, Osbourne acknowledged the gravity of the situation, stating: "I am physically unable to tour England and the rest of Europe. I could never have imagined that I would have to stop touring in this way.

My voice is fine, but my physical health has deteriorated due to the struggle with Parkinson's disease." The singer, who has been recovering from a spinal injury for the past four years, went on to detail the extensive medical treatments he has undergone to regain his strength.

Despite three operations, stem cell treatments, and most recently, groundbreaking Cynbernics (HAL) Treatment, Osbourne revealed that he still lacks the physical capability to endure the extensive travel required for his tour.

A Heavy Heart

Osbourne expressed his deep regret at having to disappoint his fans, saying: "Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really F**KS ME UP, more than you'll ever know.

Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way?" Despite the unfortunate turn of events, the legendary singer expressed his gratitude for the unwavering support and love he has received from his family, band, crew, friends, and fans.

He concluded his statement by saying: "I love you all. Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase." While the news of Osbourne's cancelled tour is certainly a disappointment for fans, the singer's health and well-being remain the top priority.

The Rock icon's team is reportedly exploring alternative performance options that will not require extensive travel.
