Ozzy Osbourne has recently revealed that he will no longer be participating in the inaugural Power Trip Festival scheduled for later this year. The festival, set to take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, was going to feature co-headliners AC/DC, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, and Tool from October 6 to 8.

After initially announcing his retirement from touring in February, Ozzy had agreed to perform a special one-off show. However, due to an extended recovery period following surgery on his spine, the singer believes he is unable to deliver a performance up to his usual standards.

Ozzy Osbourne took to his Instagram page to announce his withdrawal from performing at the Power Trip Festival in October. In his post, he expressed the difficulty of the decision and explained that his original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024. However, his body is indicating that he is not yet ready, and he refuses to deliver a subpar performance for his first show in nearly five years.

Osbourne assured fans that a replacement band, who are personal friends of his, will be announced soon, guaranteeing a satisfying experience. He expressed gratitude to his fans, band, and crew for their unwavering support and loyalty. Osbourne concluded his message by expressing love for his fans and promising to see them soon.

God bless, Ozzy
