Following Ozzy Osbourne‘s recent statement that he has retired from performing live due to his health difficulties, Zakk Wylde sent a message of solidarity to him.

The 2023 European tour, which is supposed to start in May, after being rebooked several times, has been canceled. Wylde, who is also supposed to be joining the Prince of Darkness wrote him a short message. Wylde wrote on social media:

“Oz – keep hitting the iron, staying strong & positive.

“Everybody is praying & rooting for you – your strength, resilience & heart of a lion is just one of the many reasons you’re a hero to me & millions around the world – when you are ready to roll – we roll. I love you Oz. Zakk XOXO.”

Osbourne previously announced that the main reason his body is still physically weak was due to a string of setbacks, including a serious accident at home in 2019 that injured his spine and numerous subsequent operations and therapies intended to get him back to health.

Despite his statement, the 74-year-old rocker hasn’t completely ruled out performing in the future. Osbourne said:

“My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.”

Meanwhile, Osbourne was nominated for four 2023 Grammy Awards for his latest album, Patient Number 9 and recently won the Grammy award for Best Rock Album.
