Ozzy Osbourne is taking a step backstage.

The 74-year-old “Iron Man” musician is officially retiring from touring after realizing he is not “physically capable” of the demands that travel entails.

“This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans,” he said in a statement shared with E! News February 1. “As you all know, four years ago this month, I had a serious accident in which I damaged my spine.”

He continued: “My sole purpose during this time has been to return to the stage. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physiotherapy sessions and most recently the innovative Cybernics (HAL) treatment ), my body is still physically weak.”

Osbourne, who has dealt with various health issues over the years, including a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, neck problems and, most recently, undergo major surgery in June 2022, he thanked fans for their understanding as he has to cancel his upcoming tour, which was scheduled to start in May.
