Ozzy Osbourne will no longer perform at the inaugural Power Trip festival taking place in Indio, California, this fall.
"As painful as this is, I've had to make the decision to bow out of performing on Power Trip in October," the Prince of Darkness shared in a statement. "My original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024, and when the offer to do this show came in, I optimistically moved forward.
"Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I'm just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-assed. The band that will be replacing me on Power Trip will be announced shortly. They are personal friends of mine and I can promise that you will not be disappointed.
"Above all, I want to thank my fans, my band and my crew for their unconditional loyalty and continual support," Osbourne concluded. "I love you all and I will see you soon. God Bless, Ozzy."
