Ozzy Osbourne’s health issues continue with his recent hospitalization due to the flu.

Manager/wife Sharon Osbourne confirmed the news via her social media channels stating, “As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love.”

This latest illness for Ozzy has led to the postponement of the European leg of his “No More Tours 2” farewell tour.  Rescheduled dates have yet to be announced.

Ozzy was sidelined for a significant amount of time toward the end of 2018 with three different staff infections in his right hand.  

He told Rolling Stone at the time that his right thumb swole up to  “the size of a f*ckin’ light bulb.” He needed surgery to cut out the infection, which, according to Osbourne, “Even with the numbing stuff, it was agony.”

Here’s hoping this latest hospital stint will be Ozzy last for a long time.
