Ozzy Osbourne wanted to tour Europe three years ago. The former Black Sabbath frontman is now sick with Parkinson’s. Now Corona is putting a spanner in the works.

The British cult rocker Ozzy Osbourne (“Crazy Train”) has postponed his joint European tour with the heavy metal band Judas Priest for another year.

The concerts on his farewell tour, including five appearances in Germany, should now be rescheduled for May and June 2023. The reason given by the former Black Sabbath frontman was the corona-related insecurity in terms of audience capacity and freedom to travel in Europe.

Originally, the European stage of his “No More Tours 2” tour was supposed to take place in early 2019. Because of pneumonia, Osbourne had initially postponed it to spring 2020, then two more times because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I would like to thank you all and Judas Priest for your continued patience and support,” said the 72-year-old singer. Ozzy Osbourne wants to finish the tour despite having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the meantime.
