The Prince of Darkness had to postpone his rescheduled 2020 European tour once again, but assures fans “I’m not dying.”

Ozzy Osbourne initially postponed his 2019 European tour after he suffered from an upper respiratory infection which led to pnemonia. He had to postpone his entire 2019 North American tour while he recovered from a fall at home, but rescheduled both treks for 2020. The European run was now set to kick-off late January, however, he is still not ready to hit the road yet.

In a video posted to social media, Osbourne explained that he screwed up his neck and vertebrae during a fall, which led to surgery and he has “more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car.”

“I’m not dying, I am recovering,” he assured fans, “it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would.”

“I’m bored stiff of being stuck on a f**king bed all day,” he said in the statement. “I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again. But you’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient. I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready. I’m not retiring — I’ve still got gigs to do. But when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be 100 percent ready to come out and knock your f**king socks off. And also, there’s a new album on the way.

“Thank you to my band and my crew and Live Nation, and most of all, Judas Priest. I just wanna say one thing to the fans: I sincerely thank you for your patience and your loyalty. I love you. Now, will you f**k off and let me get better.”

At this time, it’s rumored that his European dates with Judas Priest will now take place “in the first half of 2021,” due to a posting on Live Nation Sweden’s social media. His North American tour, however, will continue as planned, starting on May 27 in Atlanta, Georgia. He’s set to make stops in cities like Cincinnati, Montreal, Milwaukee, Edmonton, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. While Megadeath was originally set to provide support, an opening act for the 2020 dates have not been announced.
