Earlier this month, Ozzy Osbourne was forced to cancel his entire Europe and UK tour due to severe pneumonia. Now, the singer has decided to cancel more tour dates, including shows in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, as his recovery process isn’t going as planned. These dates, part of his No More Tours 2, were scheduled to take place in March.
The news was confirmed on Osbourne’s social media, with his wife Sharon adding that the 70-year-old rocker will have to pause at least six weeks due to doctor’s orders.
“Ozzy recently developed pneumonia and has spent some time in hospital. Thankfully he is now through the worst part,”- said Sharon Osbourne in a statement. “His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel.”
No More Tours 2 isn’t going as planned for Ozzy Osbourne. Previous to these cancelations, he also had to cancel several shows in the United States due to a staph infection.
The U.S. shows have been rescheduled for the summer of 2019 when he will be on a nation-wide tour with Megadeth. The canceled European and UK dates are expected to be rescheduled for the fall.
