Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his 2020 tour yet again due to a necessary health procedure. Ozzy had initially postponed his his concert tour in early 2019. While he was hoping to resume the tour in 2020, it looks like his health will prevent him from touring once again. Ozzy was hopeful as he started to feel more lively after recording "Take What You Want From Me" with Post Malone. Unfortunately, the power of music has not been enough to overcome his Parkinson's disease as reported by PopCulture.

He has been reportedly suffering from Parkinson's Disease since 2003 but only recently spoken out about it. The years of pushing through it are catching up to him and now he needs to undergo treatment to recover.

"I'm so thankful that everyone has been patient because I've had a s— year," Osbourne said in an official statement on his website. "Unfortunately, I won't be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six [to] eight weeks."

"I don't want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it's just not fair to the fans," he continued. "I'd rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time."

Fair enough. While some fans are complaining about refunds, the majority of fans are supportive and hope for a quick recovery.
