Ozzy Osbourne is ‘Keeping My Fingers Crossed’ to Be Ready for January Tour

Ozzy Osbourne’s No More Tours 2 trek is scheduled to resume in January 2020, and he hopes to be ready, following his recent neck surgery

Ozzy Osbourne is just a few months away from the latest round of tour dates on his No More Tours 2 trek, and now, the metal icon is discussing the neck surgery which he underwent earlier this year. The surgery was the reason Osbourne had to postpone all of his 2019 tour dates and reschedule them to 2020.

“For the first, say, four months, I was absolutely in agony,” he says in a new interview with Rolling Stone. “I was in agony beyond anything I ever experienced before in my life. It was awful. I’m taking physical and occupational therapy classes, but the progress is very slow. They say it’s going to take at least a year.”

“I’m hoping that I’ll be OK and ready to go by January [when the tour resumes],” he added. “I’m really keeping my fingers crossed.”

Back in April, Osbourne took a spill at his home, and that worsened an injury he suffered during a 2003 ATV accident.

After his neck surgery, Osbourne started doing physical and occupational therapy, and while he’s making some headway, he says the process to recovery has been “very slow.” He adds that, “They say it’s going to take at least a year.”

“It’s like making a sculpture,” he adds. “You chip away at it and it turns into this thing. You have to resculpture your life again.”
