OZZY OSBOURNE Will Be Back On Stage ‘Soon’: ‘There’s Something Coming Up,’ His Daughter Says
Written by megarock on September 22, 2019
Ozzy Osbourne is “on the mend” after battling a host of health issues and will be back performing “soon,” his daughter Kelly has said.
In early April, Ozzy postponed all his 2019 tour dates, both in North America and Europe, as he recovered from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The singer fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required new surgery.
Speaking at an event in Los Angeles, Kelly told the PA news agency: “He’s on the mend. He’s getting there. It’s been a process, but he’s definitely getting there.”
Asked when fans would see Ozzy back on stage, Kelly said: “Soon. I can’t say exactly what, but soon. There’s something coming up.”
Last week, Ozzy told U.K. tabloid The Sun that he has completed work on a new solo album, his first since 2010’s “Scream”.
Ozzy confirmed that he took just four weeks to record the new disc, saying: “This is my first [solo] recording in a studio for 10 years, so I do feel a bit out of touch.” He told the Boston Herald last year that he had “a bunch of songs written” but was unsure when or how he would end up recording them.
Ozzy was in a coma for eight days in December of 2003 when he accidentally crashed an ATV while riding on the grounds of his English estate. He broke his collarbone, several ribs and a neck vertebra in the incident, of which he told The Pulse Of Radio he had very little memory.
Most of the 2019 shows on Ozzy‘s last full world tour have been rescheduled beginning in February 2020. Fans are being asked to hold on to their original tickets, as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Because some of the 2019 dates were festival appearances, not all will be rescheduled.
Ozzy will release a box set featuring his entire catalog of solo material on vinyl later this year. The 16-disc, 173-song limited edition package is titled “See You On The Other Side” and it will arrive on November 29.
