Ozzy Osbourne Retiring From Touring Due To Spinal Injury

Ozzy Osbourne Retiring From Touring Due To Spinal Injury

Ozzy Osbourne recently took to social media to announce that he is retiring from touring due to a spinal injury.

Ozzy has scrapped the remaining dates of his No More Tours II that first began in 2018. In 2019, he postponed the European leg of the tour after he injured himself in a fall at home that aggravated a spinal injury he initially suffered during a nearly fatal quad-bike accident in 2003. After health complications and the Covid-19 pandemic caused more postponements, tour dates were scheduled for May 2023 that have now been canceled.

"This is probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to share with my loyal fans," Ozzy wrote in a statement shared across his social accounts. "As you may all know, four years ago, this month, I had a major accident, where I damaged my spine. My one and only purpose during this time has been to get back on stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics (HAL) Treatment, my body is still physically weak."

Saying that he is "humbled" by his fans' decision to hold onto their No More Tours II tickets for close to four years, Ozzy wrote, "But in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I'm not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn't deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really F*CKS ME UP, more than you will ever know."

"Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way. I want to thank my family..my band...my crew..my longtime friends, @JudasPriest, and of course, my fans for their endless dedication, loyalty, and support, and for giving me the life that I never ever dreamed I would have," Osbourne concluded. "I love you all."

U2 Release Reimagined Version Of 'With Or Without You'

U2 Release Reimagined Version Of 'With Or Without You'

U2 recently released a reimagined and re-recorded version of "With Or Without You," the second reimagined track to be released from the band's upcoming collection Songs of Surrender.

Songs Of Surrender, curated and produced by The Edge, features the band revisiting some of the most celebrated songs of their 40-plus year career, including "One," "Beautiful Day," "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "Invisible," for a musical reimagining resulting in a completely new recording of each track.

Explaining about the collection, The Edge said, "The fact is that most of our work was written and recorded when we were a bunch of very young men. Those songs mean something quite different to us now. Some have grown with us. Some we have outgrown."

"But we have not lost sight of what propelled us to write those songs in the first place," he continued. "The essence of those songs is still in us, but how to reconnect with that essence when we have moved on, and grown so much?"

Songs Of Surrender, a collection of 40 seminal U2 songs, will be released on March 17.

It is available to pre-order in a series of different colored vinyl formats at https://u2.lnk.to/SOS

Each one features 16 tracks on 2 heavyweight LP's, liner notes from Edge & a bespoke finish on the cover.

Ghost Share New Version Of 'Spillways' Featuring Def Leppard's Joe Elliott

"Spillways" is a track off Ghost's fifth album, Impera, which came out in March 2022.

"Impera was my favorite rock album of 2022," Elliott said via a press release. "I found out along the way that Tobias is a bit of a fan of DL, so I guess it was inevitable we'd both find out about each other!"

He added, "Once we'd been introduced to the idea of working together it just snowballed organically and I'm thrilled that I got to sing on what is my favorite song from that album!"
