Ozzy Osbourne has had to cancel the European leg of his tour after falling ill with the flu and bronchitis which doctors fear may develop into pneumonia.
The 70-year-old rocker initially announced that he would have to miss the first four dates of the 79-date tour just days ago after falling ill.
However after returning to his doctor for a second time, he was told he had a severe upper-respiratory infection, according to a statement obtained by People.
Ozzy is in the midst of his No More Tour 2 tour, after completing the first No More Tours Tour in 1992, when he decided he wanted to spend more time with his family – but then shortly changed his mind.
People reported that because of Ozzy’s hectic schedule and the cold winter weather, doctors fear that it could develop into pneumonia.
In the statement he said: ‘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 s**t.’
Referencing the staph infection he suffered last year, Ozzy said that was the first of his troubles before developing the flu and bronchitis.
He went on to apologise to his fans as well as his band and crew, as well as Judas Priest who he was set to perform with.
However he insisted that the tour was currently being rescheduled to start in September, no doubt once he was feeling better.
Ozzy was due to perform in Mountain View, California in October, but instead spent the evening recovering at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after undergoing hand surgery.
