As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love.— Sharon Osbourne (@MrsSOsbourne) February 6, 2019
As previously reported, the Black Sabbath singer was forced to postpone his European tour with Judas Priest late last month due to what was described as a severe upper respiratory infection.
At the time, Osbourne's publicist wrote:
Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to postpone the entire U.K. and European leg of his 'No More Tours 2′ tour on doctors' orders. This follows yesterday's announcement that Osbourne was postponing the first four dates of the tour because of the flu. After seeing his physician again, Osbourne has been diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection which the doctor feels could develop into pneumonia given the physicality of the live performances and an extensive travel schedule throughout Europe in harsh winter conditions.
Last fall, Osbourne was also forced to cancel a portion of his North American farewell tour due to "multiple infections." He later revealed that he had three staph infections in his right thumb, causing it to swell to "the size of a fuckin' lightbulb."
As previously reported, Osbourne is scheduled to return to North America in the spring.
Stay tuned for any updates on Osbourne's health as they become available.
