Just prior to being hospitalized, Osbourne was also diagnosed with a severe upper respiratory infection, which resulted in the cancellation of the U.K. leg of his "No More Tours 2" tour with Judas Priest. He made a statement regarding the cancellation:
"I'm completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to shit. First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis. I want to apologize to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It's being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy."
