Ozzy Osbourne cancels postponed farewell tour, including Phoenix show

PHOENIX – Ozzy Osbourne’s No More Tours 2 tour, which was scheduled to stop in Phoenix this summer, is no more.

The heavy metal pioneer announced Monday he was canceling what was to be his final trek across North America because of ongoing health issues.

The tour already had been postponed for a year because of the singer’s health. A show at Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, with opening act Marilyn Manson, was initially set for July 25, 2019, but it had been moved to July 23, 2020.

Refunds can be obtained at the original point of purchase. Online and phone orders will be automatically refunded.

The tour name was derived from Osbourne’s 1991 album and song “No More Tears.”

Osbourne, who fronted metal icons Black Sabbath before going solo, announced last month he’d been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a disorder of the nervous system that affects movement.

He said he would start six to eight weeks of treatment in Switzerland in April.

“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans,” he said on Facebook.

“I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”

Despite the health issues, Osbourne will release his 12th solo studio album, “Ordinary Man,” on Friday.

We want to hear from you.
