Ozzy Osbourne is retiring from touring for health reasons, according to a statement from the musician, who has also canceled his European tour with metal heavyweights Judas Priest, scheduled for May and June.
This means that the Ozzy Osbourne concert in Budapest scheduled for May 17 will not be held.
The British musician lamented that he never thought his touring days would end like this.
“As you may all know, four years ago this month, I had a major accident, where I damaged my spine. My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. 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 said in a statement.
In addition to his spine-related problems, the 74-year-old also suffers from Parkinson's disease.
