Ozzy Osbourne Postpones European Tour; US Dates Still A Go For May

It was only back in April when Metal’s own Prince Of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne offered up the news about his “No More Tours 2” European Run (seen HERE) but sadly after a recent injury has some bad news for his fans on that side of the pond. Watch his video down below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll keep this brief and to the point…above all other things I want Ozzy to be as healthy as he can be and if the doctors orders are that no more touring can possibly be done then so be it. Sure, retirement might be as boring as all hell for someone like Ozzy but his health is much more important than our entertainment. Get well soon Ozzy. Oh and before we go, let me remind the readership about his mega-stocked “See You On The Other Side” boxed set. You can peruse this pricey little collectible by clicking HERE and you know that if you are among his most ardent diehards that you need this in your collection. See you next time.
