Doctors fears come true. What started as the flu then bronchitis has now turned into pneumonia. Doctors have to take into consideration Ozzy’s age. A person over the age of 70, can turn fatal while battling pneumonia.
“This sparked a lot of panic among those closest to him, but doctors reassured everyone he was in the best possible hands. Ozzy’s a fighter, and is getting better day by day. Doctors hope the worst is over, he’s smiling again, and he can’t wait to get up on stage.”
Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy’s wife of nearly 37 years has stayed by his side. Sharon said “he’s doing good. He’s breathing on his own now.” Sharon know how much Ozzy loves to tour and is determined to give his fans what they want.
Ozzy has been forced to cancel more tour dates as he recovers. The former Black Sabbath singer had already called off the UK and European legs of his No More Tours 2. Due to poor health, he has now cancelled further planned performances in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
The musician’s team broke the news on Thursday, explaining that Osbourne fell at his Los Angeles home while recovering from a recent bout of pneumonia – which had already forced him to reschedule several concerts.
In a statement on his website at the time, Osbourne said he was “devastated” but determined to reschedule the dates for September.
Osbourne’s most recent fall aggravated old injuries resulting from a 2003 ATV accident and required a surgical operation last month, according to his team.
“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” Osbourne said in a statement.
“Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I’m grateful for the love and support I’m getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it’s really what’s keeping me going.
“Just know that I am getting better every day… I will fully recover… I will finish my tour… I will be back!”
His rescheduled shows should start in February 2020. Fans who have already purchased tickets should keep their documents for future concerts.
