The package tour, initially announced for 2019, has been postponed and rescheduled multiple times since, first to September 2020 and more recently to January 2022. Earlier deferrals concerned Osbourne’s health, such as when he battled the flu or suffered a fall. The COVID-19 pandemic nixed 2020 tour plans.
See the rescheduled Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest tour dates down toward the bottom of this post.
Osbourne explained in a statement this week, “Due to the ongoing uncertainty with full capacity events and travel logistics in much of Europe, we have come to the difficult decision to postpone my 2022 tour to 2023. Original tickets remain valid for the new dates. I want to thank all of you and Judas Priest for your continued patience and support.”
Osbourne last year released Ordinary Man and is already working on a new album. Judas Priest, now celebrating their 50th anniversary, recently postponed their remaining 2021 concerts after guitarist Richie Faulkner suffered a near-fatal heart dissection onstage.
The Ozzy and Priest tour is now scheduled to begin in Helsinki on May 3, 2023, winding its way around Europe and wrapping up in Birmingham, England, about five weeks later. Get tickets and more info here.
