Woke up this AM to a heart felt note from the Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne on his official Instagram account to learn that he has had to cancel his upcoming UK/European tour because of health reasons. He emphasized his voice is doing great, he's just not able to take on the rigors and travel of a multi-city tour. A day all Black Sabbath and Ozzy fans thought would never come. Any true Ozzy fan knows how much he loves touring and performing.
Other than short term health issues, Ozzy has been on the road since the original Black Sabbath Shows in late 1969. He had the cancel the final dates of his last world solo tour a few years ago. That really sucked because we had great seats for that show at the Shoreline in the SF Bay Area. Stone Sour was the opener and he were actually on the way to show when that news dropped. Still remember the gut punch...
What Ozzy Osbourne fans can hope for is perhaps a residency in Las Vegas that has lots of great venues and removes the demands of touring travel. Rest up Prince of Darkness and let us know when you are ready...we will ALL be there!
This emphasizes the importance for all Superfans to get out there and see the great bands you love anytime you have a chance. You never know when the music will stop...
