In a statement last week, Osbourne said he was "completely devastated" about the decision.
"It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to [expletive]," he said at the time. "First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis. I want to apologize to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It's being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy."
