Ozzy Osbourne has moved his UK & Ireland No More Tours 2 tour yet again to May and June 2023.

Still featuring special guests Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne’s previously rescheduled February and March 2022 arena shows will now take place 15 months later.

72-year-old Ozzy Osbourne said in a statement: “Due to the ongoing uncertainty with full capacity events & travel logistics in much of Europe, we have come to the difficult decision to postpone my 2022 tour to 2023.

“Original tickets remain valid for the new dates. I want to thank all of you and Judas Priest for your continued patience and support. OZZY.”

Ozzy’s UK arena tour has already been postponed three times, firstly after he contracted the flu and pneumonia in early 2019, secondly when Ozzy suffered a serious fall in his bedroom, and thirdly in October 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It means that Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest’s tour will take place more than four years later than originally planned, and almost five years after tickets first went on sale way back in September 2018.

The Black Sabbath legend released his first album in a decade, ‘Ordinary Man’, in February 2020 and he’s been working on his 13th studio album throughout the pandemic.

The upcoming album will feature guitar from Tony Iommi, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Ozzy’s frequent collaborator Zakk Wylde.

JUNE 2023
