One of Rock n Roll’s legendary artists has just been admitted to the hospital over a series of health scares and is in desperate need of your prayers.
On Wednesday, February 6, fans of the rockstar, Ozzy Osbourne, were hit with the tragic news that he had been rushed to the hospital over health complications. His wife, Sharon, made the news official on her Twitter:
“As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love.”
Shortly following the news of the health situation, fans were hit with another painful blow when they heard that the 70-year-old legend had to postpone his entire tour. When he first fell ill, he had only postponed the upcoming four shows.
After he and the doctors realized just how seriously at risk his health was, they knew it was only best to postpone the entire tour until he was able to be well enough to perform. He made an official statement to PEOPLE following this news:
“I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to ****. First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis.”
He continued: “ I want to apologize to all of my fans. Who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew, and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It’s being rescheduled. Right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy.”
While we are certainly glad he is getting the help he needs, we do pray that he continues down to road to recovery and is back on his feet sooner than later. Please keep him in your prayers in the coming weeks!
