The prince of darkness seems to be encountering some dark times of his own it seems. According to the popular music site Loudwire, singer and artist Ozzy Osbourne has officially had to cancel his 2020 North America tour due to health concerns which were getting out of hand over the past year specifically.

“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a [censored] year,” Osbourne stated, continuing that “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-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. 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.”
