Ozzy Osbourne announces rescheduled farewell tour dates for 2020 following illness

The Crazy Train is back on the rails.

Ozzy Osbourne has announced a rescheduled run of shows for 2020, after serious illness forced him to postpone his farewell tour.

The metal icon was forced to postpone dates in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan in February after he was hospitalised with pneumonia. He then postponed all upcoming 2019 shows due to a subsequent fall.

But after son Jack announced that Ozzy was back to his old self, it’s been confirmed that he’ll hit the UK and Europe once more.

While rescheduled dates in the US and Canada have already been announced, Osbourne will now visit five British cities across the country, with his London date coming at the O2 on February 10.

There will be six additional shows in Nottingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and Birmingham. You can check out the dates in full below.

Speaking earlier this year, Sharon Osbourne explained how Ozzy’s health had faltered after he dislodged metal rods he was fitted with after a motorbike accident.

“He, at the beginning of the year, had a bad flu that went to bronchitis, that went to pneumonia,” Sharon told The Talk. “And then when he had the flu, he came out of hospital and he had a bad accident at home.
