Fans of legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne are anxiously waiting for a new date to be announced for his Nottingham show after it was cancelled this week due to illness.
The artist was forced to postpone the entire UK and European leg of his ‘No More Tours 2’ tour on doctors’ orders – including the February 1 date at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena.
After seeing his physician again, Ozzy has now been diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection which the doctor feels could develop into pneumonia given the physicality of the live performances and an extensive travel schedule throughout Europe in harsh winter conditions.
In an official statement from Ozzy, he says: “I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to sh*t.
“First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis. I want to apologise to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down.
“However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It’s being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologise to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy.”
A new rescheduled date will be announced ASAP. Customers are advised to retain their ticket for the rescheduled show as all tickets will remain valid for the new date.
In the unfortunate event that customers are unable to attend the rescheduled date, full refunds will be available from point of sale.
