During a recent episode of The Osbournes podcast, Ozzy Osbourne candidly discussed his forthcoming return to the stage despite the health challenges he has confronted.
When Jack Osbourne kicked off the podcast by inquiring about everyone’s well-being, the legendary singer shared:
“I visited the doctor last Monday, and they informed me that I’m now free of blood clots. So, next Monday, I have a procedure on one of my arteries, and afterward, it’s all about physical therapy.”
While addressing his health condition, the rock icon also revealed his intention to explore tai chi as a potential aid in his comeback to the concert stage. He expressed:
“I’m going to give it a shot. It’s great for balance. It’s a new adventure.”
When Kelly Osbourne highlighted the benefits of tai chi for individuals with Parkinson’s disease, Ozzy chimed in:
“I’m eager to make a comeback, and I’m exploring all available options.”
Earlier in July, the musician had to cancel his performance at the upcoming Power Trip festival due to his ongoing health issues. He provided a statement clarifying:
“As much as it pains me, I’ve had to make the tough decision to withdraw from performing at Power Trip in October. My original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024, and when the offer for this show came in, I optimistically moved forward.”
His health struggles had previously led to the cancellation of several scheduled tours, including the ‘No More Tours 2 Tour’ and his gigs with Judas Priest in the UK and Ireland.
However, in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Osbourne shared some positive updates regarding his health following his final surgery in September. He no longer experiences pain and is feeling better overall. While his mobility is still limited, he maintains an optimistic outlook for 2024 and intends to record a new album before embarking on his next tour.
