Osbourne did make sure to note that his scheduled leg of North American spring 2020 performances are still set to begin on May 27th with a gig at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA.

In recent interviews, Ozzy has complained of his monotonous rehabilitation work and how he's been desperate to get back in shape and on tour.

Many of Ozzy's 3.2 million followers inundated him with well wishes with one person writing to Sharon Osbourne's husband: "GET WELL OZZY WE LOVE YOU". "I've got a lot more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my vehicle".

"I'm not dying, I am recovering". I can't wait to get off my ass and get going again, but you're just gonna have to be a little bit more patient.

The former Black Sabbath frontman and solo metal star behind hits like "Crazy Train" says in the video that he's "bored stiff" being stuck in bed all day.

He then broke the news to European fans that his rescheduled shows there are now "TBA". "I'm postponing the European tour because I'm not ready".

Wearing his iconic round-framed glasses, Ozzy said to the camera whilst sitting down: "At the beginning of this year I had a bad fall, had to have surgery, so I've got more nuts and bolts in my neck now than my vehicle".

"I wanna be 100% ready to come and knock your fucking socks off".

He also added he's got a new album on the way as he thanked everyone for their "patience and loyalty".

Ozzy noted the rescheduled North American tour dates in February 2020 are still on.

2019 has been a tough one for Ozzy Osbourne.

"Now, will you fuck off and let me get better!" So far, those dates are not affected by the recent news.

Ozzy has been working with occupational therapists to get him back to full fitness in time for the tour, but in a video message to fans, Ozzy says his recuperation is taking longer than anticipated and he's had to postpone the shows as a result.
