Ozzy Osbourne who recently declared his retirement from performing live and who canceled all his scheduled performances has stated that he would think about going on the road once more.
The Prince of Darkness said that he might be able to perform live again if his health condition improves. Upon announcing his retirement, he elaborated on his condition and his frustrations. He said:
“My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak.”
Osbourne went on thanking his fans for “patiently held onto your tickets for all this time,” and continued “but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really FUCKS ME UP, more than you will ever know.”
Meanwhile, in a new interview with Billy Morrison the Prince of Darkness stated:
“So, if I can ever get back to where I can tour again, fine. But right now, if you said to me, ‘Can you go on the road in a month?’ I couldn’t say yes. I mean, if I could tour I’d tour. But right now I can’t book tours because right now, I don’t think I could pull them off.
“If I get OK today. If the doctor said to me today, ‘Oh, you can tour.’ It would take another six months to get it together, you know? The only thing I’ve got that keeps me going is making records. But I can’t do that forever. I gotta get outta there.”
Although Osbourne has Parkinson’s disease which was first identified in 2003, he cleared the rumors by saying on his SiriusXM show:
“I’m not fucking dying.”
