Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne has officially announced the cancellation of his European tour, following his horrific quad bike crash last month (8DEC03).

Ozzy has promised to reschedule the 20 gigs, which had been scheduled for early 2004, once he has fully recovered from his injuries, which is likely to take months.

The 55-year-old says, "I am deeply disappointed, but it's out of my control. Right now I need to concentrate on my recovery and unfortunately this is something I cannot rush.

"I have to take things one step at a time now. I look forward to being back on stage as and when the doctors tell me I am fit and ready."

The CHANGES singer nearly died in the accident and had to be placed on a ventilator at WEXHAM PARK HOSPITAL, Slough, England after breaking six ribs, a collarbone and a neck vertebra.
