After cancelling tours each of the past two summers due to health issues, you might wonder if Ozzy Osbourne is done performing live.
Well if you ask The Prince Of Darkness, he will “absolutely” tour again.
“My desire is to get back on stage,” Ozzy said ina recent interview. “I’m not ready to hang up my mic yet – that’s what I live for. I exercise as much as I can: I have a trainer, I do pilates. But the best medication I can get is being in front of an audience, which is breaking my heart.”
“I will be up there. I have to say that because now you’re going to say, ‘What will you do if you can’t do it again?’ That’s not an option. That’s the only thing I’ve ever done in my life. That’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do and that’s the only thing I’ve felt confident about.”
So the question is not a matter of if, but when he will be able to return to the stage. “I will. Absolutely. I have to say that,” Ozzy assured.
“The way I look at it, and I’ve spoken to [my wife] Sharon about this, I cannot go on the road until I’m 100-percent confident that I can pull it off,” he said. “Because if I go out now and I can’t carry on, people are gonna think that I’ve lost the plot. So I’m not gonna go out there until I can give them the show that I wanna give them, because it’s not fair to them.”
