Ozzy Osbourne cancels gig at Power Trip Festival: “I’m just not ready yet”

Author Flavia Andrade - 10.7.2023

Heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne has dropped out of Power Trip festival because of his ongoing health issues. Ozzy was originally planning on returning to the stage in 2024, but wished to make an effort to get out there this year.

He issued a statement that reads:

As painful as this is, I’ve had to make the decision to bow out of performing on Power Trip in October.

My original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024, and when the offer to do this show came in, I optimistically moved forward. Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I’m just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-assed.

The band that will be replacing me on Power Trip will be announced shortly. They are personal friends of mine and I can promise that you will not be disappointed. Above all, I want to thank my fans, my band, and my crew for their unconditional loyalty and continual support.

I love you all and I will see you soon.
