Ozzy Osbourne uploaded a video to his Instagram and Twitter account yesterday of himself informing his fans about having to postpone his European tour again, after it was initially cancelled in February.

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 car.”
The Birmingham-native continued: “I’m not dying, I am recovering. It's just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would.

“I’m bored stuff of being stuck on a f***ing bed all day, can’t want to get off my a**e and get going again, but you’ve got to be patient.”
Ozzy then insisted he’s not retiring and will be back for the American leg of his tour as he revealed the bad news about his European dates.
“I’m postponing the European tour because I'm not ready,” he said.
“I’m not retiring - I've still got gigs to do. But when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be one hundred per cent ready to come out and knock your f***ing socks off.”
He also added he’s got a new album on the way as
