Ozzy Osbourne has called off the first four U.K. dates of his European “No More Tours 2” farewell tour due to a case of the flu. The cancellation announcement came from Judas Priest, who were set to open for Ozzy on the tour, scheduled to kick-off January 30 in Dublin, Ireland.

Judas Priest stated on the band’s official Instagram account, “It is with great regret we have to announce that the first four UK shows on the Ozzy Osbourne/Judas Priest tour have been postponed due to Ozzy having a very bad case of flu – therefore Dublin, Nottingham, Manchester and Newcastle will be rescheduled at a later date – details to follow once finalized – we are very sorry that this has happened and to disappoint so many fans – we wish Ozzy well and look forward to the Glasgow, Birmingham and London shows together – and to the rescheduled ones in the future.”

The four canceled concerts were the first concerts from Osbourne in 2019. For the rest of Osbourne’s 2019 scheduled shows, go to the link here.
