Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Ozzy Osbourne has postponed his European tour.

The seemingly snakebit run, which also features Judas Priest on the bill, has now been delayed to 2023, four years after it was originally supposed to kick off.

You may recall that the tour was first scheduled to begin all the way back in January 2019, but was postponed to early 2020 after Ozzy came down with a particularly nasty case of the flu. In the spring of 2019, the now 72-year-old metal legend suffered a fall in his home and required surgery, the extended recovery from which forced him to push back the tour again to the fall of 2020.

Then, of course, came the COVID-19 pandemic, which delayed the tour once more, to 2022. Now, as a result of “ongoing uncertainty with full capacity events and travel logistics in much of Europe” stemming from the continued pandemic, Ozzy is set to finally hit Europe beginning May 2023.

Should you still have your ticket from any of the previously scheduled shows, that will be valid at the 2023 dates. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit
