Ozzy Osbourne says goodbye to the stage: "Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way"

The artist canceled his farewell tour with Judas Priest due to health reasons.

Rock star Ozzy Osbourne announced the cancellation of his farewell tour that was planned to take place in Europe and the United Kingdom. The British artist released a statement on Wednesday sharing the news with his followers and explaining that health reasons led him to make this difficult decision:

With this announcement, the hope for the musical group Judas Priest to return to the stage is fading away. The European tour, under the name No More Tours 2023, was the group's official farewell to their fans.

The former lead singer of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath had already postponed this tour several times for health reasons. In 2003, Ozzy Osbourne was involved in an accident while driving a quad and had to have his spine repaired. Subsequently, he took a fall in his room in 2019 that aggravated his injury. A year later, in 2020, the rocker revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
