Ozzy Osbourne says he still 'can't walk much' ahead of 2023 tour He's due to tour with Judas Priest next summer Ozzy Osbourne in September 2022 Author: Scott Colothan Published 13th Dec 2022 Last updated 14th Dec 2022 Ozzy Osbourne has admitted he still can't “walk much now” six months after undergoing life-altering surgery. The heavy metal legend has suffered a series of health setbacks in recent years including his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis, a staph infection in his hand, emphysema and a serious fall in his bedroom in 2019, which aggravated injuries suffered in his quadbike crash in 2003. Ozzy later revealed that the initial surgery he received following his fall was ‘all wrong’ and left him unable to walk. The Prince of Darkness underwent ‘life-determining’ surgery in June to realign pins in his neck and back, and just two months later he performed live at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games closing ceremony with his former Black Sabbath band mate Tony Iommi. The following month, Ozzy performed at the Los Angeles Rams NFL Season Opener, however for both his live comebacks he was propped up by a device supporting his body while onstage. Ozzy Osbourne UK tour Reflecting upon performing live again in a new interview with SiriusXM, Ozzy said (via Yahoo): "It is so f---ing tough because, I mean, I want to be out there.
I want to be doing it. This f---ing surgery this guy did. F---ing hell, you have no idea." He added: "The thing is my head is all right, my creativity is OK, my singing OK but I just can’t f---ing walk much now." Commenting on his continued recovery, Ozzy added: "I can’t begin to tell you how f---ing frustrating life has become.
It is amazing how you go along in life and one stupid thing can screw everything up for a long time. I have never been ill this long in my life." He also revealed that the surgery in June prevented him from further disability, explaining: "That surgeon told me if I didn’t have the surgery there would be a good chance I would be paralysed from the neck down." Ozzy Osbourne is scheduled to tour the UK & Ireland in May and June 2023 on his No More Tours 2 trek with Judas Priest, which has been postponed multiple times because of Ozzy’s health. Speaking to The Guardian in August, Ozzy vowed to give the 2023 tour his “best shot.” “I’ll give it the best shot I can for another tour,” Ozzy said.
