Ozzy Osbourne has postponed his European tour again as he continues recovering from a fall at his home at the start of this year which required surgery.

“I’m here to give you an update on my condition,” he says. “At the beginning of this year I had a bad fall – I screwed all the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery. I’ve got more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car.”

“I’m not dying, I’m recovering – it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I’m bored stiff – I’ve been stuck on a fucking bed all day. I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again, but you’re just going to have to be a bit more patient.”

“I’ve postponed my European tour because I’m not ready. I’m not retiring, I’ve still got gigs to do. When I do come back on the American tour, I want to be 100% ready to come out and knock your fucking socks off.”

The No More Tours 2 Tour had been due to take place in January and February next year. The North American leg, planned for May 2020, is at the moment on as scheduled.
