One, @osbourne._.ozzy, declared: “This made me cry. No one will ever be like Ozzy. I love you guys sooo much!”
The touching tribute comes after just hours after Ozzy confessed he was “too weak” to perform in the much anticipated tour, citing a failure to recover from a traumatic spinal injury in 2019.
It followed a near-fatal quad bike accident he suffered twenty years ago, and despite surgeries, he has been unable to return to his former self.
“After three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak,” he admitted.
However in a positive note, Ozzy explained that his team is brainstorming ideas so that he can perform, without the need to travel “from city to city and country to country”.
He added sadly in an impassioned social media statement: “Never would I have imagined my touring days would end this way.”
