Ozzy Osbourne, the legendary British rocker, has announced that he will be retiring from touring. He will not be able to embark on a European and UK tour this spring due to his physical incapabilities. The 74-year-old singer, who rose to fame as the lead vocalist of Black Sabbath, has been receiving treatment for years following a fall in 2019 that worsened his spinal injuries sustained in a 2003 quad bike accident.
In a post on Instagram on Wednesday, Osbourne shared the news with his devoted fans, expressing his disappointment at having to cancel the tour. He stated that despite having a healthy voice, his body cannot handle the travel demands of touring. The former Black Sabbath frontman went on to say that this was "probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to share with my loyal fans."
