A clearly exasperated statement released earlier this month showed Ozzy Osbourne's personal frustration with his current cycle of illness and injury, but the singer is on his way back up to the top. His latest step is the announcement of a European run in early 2020 that will make up for shows he was forced to cancel on his current No More Tours 2 run.
Kicking off January 31st, 2020 in Nottingham, U.K., the trek — which will see support from NWOBHM pioneers Judas Priest — is set to snake through Europe, ending in Zurich, Switzerland, on March 16th. The tour will then make its way back to this side of the pond in May 2020, seeing the metal wild man venture through the United States and Canada before wrapping it all up in his hometown of Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl on a to-be-announced date.
"I'm really looking forward to getting back to Europe for these shows," said Ozzy in a statement posted on his Instagram. "Thank you to all the fans for sticking with me and waiting for the new dates to be announced. I can't wait to see you all next year." While most cities will honor previously purchased tickets from the canceled dates, exceptions in Prague, Germany, Denmark and Spain apply to performances that had to move cities and venues. See the post below for full details.
