Ozzy Osbourne cancels European tour, citing tremors


By Wade Paulsen, 10/17/2003 

The Boston Globe reports that Ozzy Osbourne canceled his European tour, which was to start next week, after announcing that he had spent the past three weeks in Boston seeking medical treatment for tremors.

Ozzy, the cartoonish head of the Osbourne family on MTV's The Osbournes, claimed that the tremors had affected him to the point that they were "practically destroying my life along with my self-esteem." We wonder if Ozzy will next seek to blame the tremors for his heavily-criticized performances during this summer's "Ozzfest" (when he even bothered to show up, that is) or his incoherent rendition of the U.S. national anthem at a Chicago Cubs game.

Ozzy consulted with the head of the neurology department at Boston's Tufts Medical Center, came to the city for treatment and then returned to L.A. for a three-to-four-week convalescence. In an effort to maintain his anonymity during his three weeks in "the Hub of the Universe," he was treated at St. Elizabeth's, the most isolated major hospital in Boston. Said a spokesperson for the hospital, "Privacy's a very important thing, whether you're Ozzy Osbourne or an average person like myself."

Our only reaction to that is to wonder: if Ozzy really values privacy, why is he appearing in a weekly reality show about his life? And why is he married to Sharon?
