Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his upcoming North American tour, which included a stop in Edmonton this summer.

In a note posted to his official Twitter account, the rocker said the cancellation will allow him to recover from various health issues he’s faced over the past year.

Health ailments also saw Osbourne postpone a tour last year.

Osbourne was scheduled to play in Edmonton on July 7 before heading to Vancouver on July 9.

Earlier this year, Osbourne revealed he had been diagnosed with a form of Parkinsons’ disease, part of a slew of recent health problems, including a bout of pneumonia, neck surgery and nerve damage.

Following some promotional work for his upcoming album, Osbourne will head to Europe for some medical treatment.

Refunds will be available to those who purchased tickets.
