In a recent video announcement, Ozzy had said that he if forced to once again postpone European tour dates with JUDAS PRIEST.
“I’m here to give you an update on my condition,” he said. “As you probably know, or you may not know, at the beginning of this year, I had a bad fall. I screwed all the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery. I’ve got a lot more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car.
“I’m not dying, I am recovering — it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I’m bored stiff of being stuck on a f*cking bed all day. I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again. But you’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient. I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready.
He continued: “I’m not retiring — I’ve still got gigs to do — but when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be one hundred percent ready to come out and knock your f*cking socks off. And also, there’s a new album on the way.”
“Thank you to my band and my crew and Live Nation, and most of all, JUDAS PRIEST,” Ozzy added.
“I just wanna say one thing to the fans: I sincerely thank you for your patience and your loyalty. I love you. Now, will you f*ck off and let me get better.”
