Look, there are a lot of incredible singers in the history of rock music – Sammy Hagar, Robert Plant, Ronnie James Dio, Steve Perry, Bruce Dickinson, Maynard James Keenan, Freddie Mercury, and countless others. However, there is only one Prince Of Darkness. That’s right. Ozzy is one of a kind.

He’s a goofy character for sure, but he’s also written and performed some of the most famous and powerful rock anthems of all time. I don’t think that I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t love Ozzy, and quite frankly I don’t want to. I don’t think we could be friends.

He was out on his "No More Tours" tour and came down with a rather serious respiratory infection - so serious in fact that he had to cancel the 16 dates of his tour. That's quite a few shows. Just when he got back to good health, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease that has forced him to cancel all of his 2020 North American tour dates, including his rescheduled date at the Xcel Energy Center on July 3rd.

Definitely a bit of a bummer, especially since fans who had already purchased tickets already had expected to wait an entire extra year for him to come back after having pushed his original date in 2019 back to 2020 - now he won't be coming at all. I certainly hope he gets back to good health soon so that we can continue seeing the prince of darkness in all his glory perform.
