“I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held on to your tickets for all this time,” he said in an announcement on social media.

“But in all good conscience, I have now come to the realisation 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.”

“Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way,” Osbourne continued.

“You think you’re lifting your feet, but your foot doesn’t move,” he explained.
