Although Ozzy Osbourne Is Unsure If He Will Perform Again, He Plans To “Die A Happy Man” If He Does

Despite his precarious health, the Prince of Darkness has great expectations that he will be able to make one last stand.

Ozzy Osbourne postponed his spring tour dates in Europe in February, marking four years after a serious accident that broke his back and necessitated a life-saving surgery to realign and remove pins from his neck and back. The leader for Black Sabbath once declared that he was “not physically capable” of handling the demanding travel that comes with touring. Osbourne made the announcement in July that he would not be headlining the Power Trip Festival, joining Metallica, AC/DC, and Guns N’ Roses as co-headliners.

He disclosed in 2020 that he suffered from Parkinson’s disease, a neurological condition that can lead to a variety of problems, including stiffness, loss of balance, and slow movement. In 2020, he disclosed to The Times that he had a diagnosis of the illness in 2003 and was taking medicine to treat it.

Osbourne Sick Of Hearing That His Career Is Now Over

Even with all of these health problems, Osbourne is sick of hearing that his career is now over. The 74-year-old said he’s now accepting the possibility that he might never set foot on stage again, but he’s taking things “one day at a time” and hoping to play again someday. Osbourne went on to say that he would only return to the stage if he felt comfortable being himself there. For years, Osbourne has thought of his fans as his family, and he has voiced a desire to thank them one last time.

“I never had the opportunity to say thank you or goodbye, and that’s one of the things I’ve been the most pissed off at,” Osbourne remarked. “Because the most important thing is my fans.” If only I could work a few gigs. They’ve supported me faithfully for five years. They are well-informed about my dogs and write to me. Really, they’re my extended family, and they’re the reason we lead the lives we do. That’s what I want to strive toward, for whatever reason. In order to perform those shows…

“I just want to get well enough to do one show where I can say, ‘Hey, folks, thanks so much for my life,’ if I can’t keep doing shows on a regular basis. That is my aspiration; in the event of failing to achieve it, I will find solace in my demise.
