Ozzy Osbourne took to social media this week to assure fans he's still very much alive--even as he also announced that he's postponing his European tour yet again. "They thought I was dead, but I've come back again," the 70-year-old rocker said Wednesday in a 90-second video. "I'm not dying, I am recovering. It's just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would." He added about the surgeries he's undergone after falling and injuring his neck and spine earlier this year, "I've got more nuts and bolts in my neck now than my car." He also declared in pure Ozzy style, "I'm bored stiff of being stuck on a f**king bed all day." As for his No More Tours 2 tour, Reuters notes that his rescheduled North American shows are still expected to take place as planned starting in May 2020. But the European leg of his trek, which had already been rescheduled for a January 2020 start, will now be pushed back again. “I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready," he explained. "I’m not retiring--I’ve still got gigs to do--but when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be 100 percent ready to come out and knock your socks off."
