Wife Sharon insists he returns to the road, despite he cancer battle...

Ozzy Osbourne is going back on tour sooner than expected after earlier announcing an extended break to help his wife and manager SHARON through chemotherapy.

The Prince Of Darkness will now rejoin Ozzfest on August 7 in Clarkston, Michigan, well ahead of the August 22 date previously mooted.

It is believed he decided to make his live return on Sharon’s insistence.

“After attending Sharon’s first chemotherapy treatment, he nearly passed out and had to be taken to a recovery room,” a spokesperson said.

“Sharon now realises Ozzy Osbourne is better off on the road so she’s shipped him back out to finish Ozzfest.”

Sharon will go through chemotherapy for three months fighting a cancer that spread from her colon. Her treatment and recovery will be filmed for the ‘The Osbournes’ TV show.
