Ozzy Osbourne cancels 2020 North American ‘No More Tours 2’ due to health issues
Will the Prince of Darkness ever tour again? Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne has just announced that he’s cancelling his 2020 North American No More Tours 2, which was to run from June 13th to July 31st.
About a month ago, Osbourne revealed that he was suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, which is not curable.
Back in April 2019, Osbourne postponed all of his 2019 tour dates due to an injury that he sustained while dealing with pneumonia.
The following message was posted on Osbourne‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“Ozzy’s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow Osbourne to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new Ordinary Man album (out February 21), Osbourne will head to Europe for additional treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” Osbourne said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.
“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”
Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticketholders who purchased “No More Tours 2” tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.”
