Ozzy Osbourne has had a rough couple years health-wise. Last winter he was hospitalized for complications from the flu, and a few months before that he almost died from an infection from a manicure (these wild n’ crazy rockstars!). Now he’s had to cancel his entire 2020 North American “No More Tours 2” tour because of more health problems including Parkinson’s Disease, which he recently told the world he has.
Osbourne, 71, who in April of last year postponed all 2019 concerts, has been suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, pneumonia and injuries due to a fall at home.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” he said in a statement. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.
Everyone who bought a ticket will get a full refund, and first pick of tickets if/when Ozzy ever tours again. It’s a bummer, but I don’t think fans will hold this against him. Health problems are to be expected with Ozzy. He’s lived a seriously intense life (read his Wikipedia, especially the Drug and alchohol abuse section, it’s wild). He once said there was “no plausible medical reason” why he should still be alive.
But this can’t all be attributed to his rockstar ways. The man is 71. Getting old sucks, and Parkinson’s sounds like absolute hell.
Of course, I can completely empathize with Ozzy’s struggles, because last week, and… I’m choking up as I write this, but here it goes… I had my first UTI. And you bet your ass I canceled every goddamn event on my calendar so I could lie in bed and post Instagram stories of myself whining, “I have a UTIIIII! Look at meee! Pity meee!” Even my adoring cat, Bob, defied the laws of science by LEARNING BASIC HUMAN ENGLISH, so he could say, “Turn it down, Jameela Jamil”.
