Ozzy Osbourne, known as The Prince of Darkness for his frontman role in heavy metal band Black Sabbath, was admitted to hospital last night after taking a turn for the worse.
According to Fox News the 70-year-old postponed his European tour last month after suffering from an upper-respiratory infection caused from his flu.
The tour was originally going to kick off tonight in Dublin.
Doctors were originally concerned his infection could turn to pneumonia.
His wife Sharon Osbourne announced his health update on Twitter to her 2.44m followers last night.
Revealing all, she wrote: “As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu.
“His doctors feel this is the best way to get on a quicker road to recovery.”
Signing off she thanked everyone for their support and love.
The singer’s health problems seem to have been going on for some time as Ozzy also postponed his US tour last October due to two previous infections in his hand.
Speaking out to fans in a statement about his most recent run of cancellations, Osbourne explained that he had developed bronchitis after suffering from severe flu.
Opening up he said: “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 s***.”
Clearly disappointed, he apologised to all his fans who he felt had been so loyal over the years, for letting them down, as well as his co-star band members and Judas Priest.
He promised them all that the tour would be completed and that is is just rescheduled for September.
