Ozzy Osbourne announces 2022 European tour dates with Judas Priest

Ozzy Osbourne has announced the rescheduled dates for his European tour with Judas Priest.

The long-delayed outing, which was originally set to kick off in January 2019, is now set to launch in January of 2022.

Tickets purchased for the originally scheduled shows will be honored at the new dates. Refunds are also available at point of purchase. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit Ozzy.com.

“I really want to thank my fans for their loyalty and for waiting for me,” the Prince of Darkness says in a statement. “Believe me, I can’t wait to see you all again. Please stay safe in these uncertain times. God Bless you All! Love Ozzy.”

Ozzy initially postponed the tour after coming down with particularly nasty flu. He then had to push back all of his 2019 tour dates after suffering a fall in his home and aggravating injuries he suffered in a 2003 ATV accident, which required surgery.

The 71-year-old metal legend was continuing to recover from that when the COVID-19 pandemic hit — which, of course, prevented anybody from touring.

Ozzy played his most recent full show on New Year’s Eve, 2018. He also joined Post Malone and Travis Scott for a performance of their collaborative song “Take What You Want” at the American Music Awards in November 2019.
