In 2023, Ozzy Osbourne revealed his inability to continue touring owing to health issues. While his wife, Sharon Osbourne, hinted at two possible goodbye performances in Birmingham, Ozzy hasn’t taken the stage since his announcement.

In a Rolling Stone interview, the topic of Ozzy’s return to performing was broached. He expressed his desire to perform again but acknowledged his physical limitations, saying, “I would love to, but I can’t stand up right. Maybe I’ll do something one day. I miss it terribly.”

Regarding the possibility of performing a brief set if inducted into the Rock Hall, Ozzy responded with a noncommittal, “Maybe. We’ll see.”

Despite retiring from touring, Ozzy has kept his musical flame alive. Over the past four years, he has released two albums produced by Andrew Watt: ‘Ordinary Man’ in 2020 and ‘Patient Number 9’ in 2022.

Eager to create more music, Ozzy awaits a call from Watt, who has been collaborating with Lady Gaga, saying, “I’m dying to make more music.”

The Black Sabbath legend has expressed a desire to create “one more album” and possibly tour again. However, health setbacks, including a COVID-19 infection two years ago, have led to the cancellation of several tours and performances.

Osbourne’s health struggles have been significant, including Parkinson’s disease diagnosed four years ago and spine injuries from a 2003 quad-bike accident. These issues forced him to cancel a European tour with Judas Priest in 2023 after multiple reschedulings and withdraw from the Power Trip festival.

Despite these obstacles, Osbourne has managed to perform a few times over the last two years, notably at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in August 2022 and an NFL halftime show in September 2022.
