Ozzy Osbourne has pulled the plug on his upcoming North American tour “to allow him to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year,” his spokesman says.

The cancellation of his No More Tours 2 dates marked the second time Osbourne has called off the planned series of concerts, following last April’s postponement of the original “No More Tours.” In a statement, Osbourne says he needs the time to seek treatment for Parkinson’s disease overseas. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks,” he says. “I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans.”

Tickets can be returned for a full refund – including fees – at their point of purchase. Osbourne says everyone returning tickets will get first dibs when he eventually reschedules the tour.

Ozzy’s 12th studio album, Ordinary Man, is still scheduled to be released this Friday, February 21st. Following the cancelled tour announcement, Ozzy tweeted another teaser track off the album called “Today is The End”
