Ozzy Osbourne fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The iconic British rocker has been released from the intensive care ward of Keck Hospital of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles after being admitted earlier this month due to an upper-respiratory infection.
Rolling Stone reports on Feb. 13 that the update comes from the ailing Black Sabbath singer's wife and manager Sharon Osbourne. The Talk co-host provided details of her husband's condition, during Tuesday's edition of the popular CBS daytime talk show, telling fans that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is “doing good” and “breathing on his own.”
The Prince of Darkness initially developed a case of the flu earlier this month, which developed into severe bronchitis. The “Crazy Train” hitmaker was admitted to hospital and forced to cancel his entire 2019 farewell of the U.K. and Europe because the doctors feared the onset of pneumonia, which could prove fatal to the septuagenarian.
“He's out of ICE and he's doing good,” Mrs. Osbourne told “The Talk” audience.” “ He's breathing on his own.”
“Thank you to everyone for all your get well messages and support for Ozzy,” she added via a Twitter posted on Tuesday. “We are overwhelmed and truly touched by everyone’s thoughtfulness.”
The Grammy winner is currently scheduled to resume his farewell tour with a headline appearance on March 9 in Sydney, Australia, at Download Festival. The No More Tours 2 will return to North America on May 28 in Atlanta at State Farm Arena and make a big stop on July 21 in Las Vegas at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
