LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Just days after he announced he was canceling his European tour while battling a respiratory infection, rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been hospitalized.
Ozzy’s wife Sharon Osbourne broke the news when she tweeted: “As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love.”
Ozzy previously revealed he was unwell on January 28th when he announced he was postponing the first four dates of his upcoming tour with Judas Priest. A day later, he announced the whole tour had been postponed, writing:
“I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to s–t. First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis. I want to apologize to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It’s being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy.”
The No More Tours 2 is intended to be Ozzy’s farewell tour, though he has not shut the door on performing “some shows here and there.”
