Osbourne's UK tour is still scheduled for October.
The Black Sabbath musician has revealed that he's been diagnosed with a form of Parkinson's disease, called PRKN 2, after suffering a fall last February.
"It's been terribly challenging for us," he told Good Morning America. "My legs feel like they're going cold, I don't know if that's from the Parkinson's," he continues. His wife Sharon has said that the couple will travel to Switzerland in an attempt to secure further treatment for the condition. "[This is] not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination," she stresses.
Osbourne explained that his decision to go public with the information has made him feel better, and that he is happy he came clean to his fans. In the same interview, he details that 2019 was "the longest, most painful and miserable" year of his life. Despite his health issues, Osbourne is now on the mend and plans to go on tour in the UK in October. His album Ordinary Man will arrive on February 21st.
