OZZY OSBOURNE Cancels 2020 “No More Tours 2”

 
 

 

DATE: FEB 17, 2020

FROM: MARCEE RONDAN/MITCH SCHNEIDER

 

OZZY OSBOURNE
CANCELS 2020
NORTH AMERICAN
“NO MORE TOURS 2” DATES
TO HEAD OVERSEAS
FOR ADDITIONAL MEDICAL TREATMENTS

OZZY OSBOURNE‘s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow OSBOURNE to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new ORDINARY MAN album (out February 21), OSBOURNE will head to Europe for additional treatments.

 

“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” OSBOURNE said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.

 

“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”

 

Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticketholders who purchased “No More Tours 2” tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.

OZZY OSBOURNE Unveils Video For “Under The Graveyard”

 
 

 

DATE:        DECEMBER 19, 2019   
FROM:       MARCEE RONDAN/MITCH SCHNEIDER
 
 
 
 
OZZY OSBOURNE
UNVEILS VIDEO FOR
#1 ROCK RADIO TRACK
“UNDER THE GRAVEYARD”
FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM, ‘ORDINARY MAN,’
DUE OUT EARLY NEXT YEAR
WATCH THE CLIP HERE
 
 
For his new video for the #1 rock track “Under The Graveyard,” OZZY OSBOURNEreteamed with acclaimed film director, screenwriter and music video director Jonas Akerlund (who worked with OSBOURNE on videos for “Let Me Hear You Scream” and “Gets Me Through”). Watch the video here.
The semi-autobiographical video was recently filmed in Los Angeles and features actors Jack Kilmer (as OZZY OSBOURNE) and Jessica Barden (as Sharon Osbourne). Set in the late 70s in the early part of OZZY‘s solo career, the clip shows the darkness of life and how a helping hand and love can change everything.
“For ‘Under the Graveyard’ Jonas (Akerlund) developed the story into a ‘mini movie,'” says OZZY OSBOURNE. “But, to be quite honest, it’s hard for me to watch because it takes me back to some of the darkest times in my life. Thankfully Sharon was there to pick me up and believe in me. It was the first time she was there to fully support me and build me back up, but it certainly wasn’t the last.”

 

“Under The Graveyard” recently captured the #1 position on the Rock Radio Chart and has eclipsed 5.4 million streams worldwide. It marks the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter’s third #1 on this chart and his first in 10 years; “Under The Graveyard” is his first new solo music in as many years. It’s the first track from OZZY‘s forthcoming album, ORDINARY MAN, due out on Epic Records in early 2020.

 

 

ORDINARY MAN was recorded in Los Angeles and features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
