Ozzy announced his retirement as a touring musician earlier this week.

Ozzy initially scrapped his entire 2019 schedule as he recovered from surgery to repair an injury sustained while dealing with a bout of pneumonia. The tour was postponed a second time after Ozzy continued to deal with health issues following a fall in his Los Angeles home. That fall “aggravated years-old injuries” from an ATV accident that occurred in 2003. The tour was pushed back a third time in October 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Had Ozzy‘s European tour with JUDAS PRIEST tour taken place in May 2023, it would have been more than four years later than originally planned, and almost five years after tickets first went on sale in September 2018.

In December, Ozzy was spotted leaning on a cane while shopping at the luxury supermarket Erewhon Market in Los Angeles. A female assistant helped him maneuver his shopping cart through the store. The 74-year-old is continuing to deal with health woes, including a serious spinal injury that has left him struggling to walk even six months after another surgery.


But he told SiriusXM: “I still have a lot in the tank. I’m determined to get back on the stage again. I’m still in recovery, and I have a goal. And my goal is to get back on stage. It’s the driving force in me. I miss my audience. I miss doing gigs. I miss my crew. I miss my band. I miss the whole thing.

“My family has been so good,” he added. “I am the man of the family, but I have never been this laid up in my life.”

Three years ago, Ozzy publicly revealed his battle with Parkinson’s disease. The singer was first diagnosed with the neurological disorder back in 2003, but he didn’t disclose that he was stricken with the disease until a January 2020 appearance on “Good Morning America”.


Eighteen years ago, Ozzy said that he had been diagnosed with Parkin syndrome, a genetic condition which has symptoms similar to that of Parkinson’s disease, such as body shakes. At the time, he said that he was relieved his debilitating body tremors were from Parkin and not his lifetime of drug abuse.

Ozzy’s last album Patient Number 9 was written by OzzyWattRobert Trujillo (METALLICA), Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) and Ali Tamposi and features a riveting solo from legendary guitarist Jeff Beck
