The Power Trip Festival is a rock music extravaganza hosted by Coachella founders Goldenvoice. It is scheduled for October 6 to October 8, 2023, and is set to feature iconic rock bands such as Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and others.
Another fan noted that the singer “looks like a corpse.” People said that apart from his illness, Ozzy seemed to be aging fast.
Before opting out of the Power Trip Festival, Ozzy had announced that he was canceling his tour commitments in February 2023 to focus on getting better. In July, he said he had been hopeful he would return to the stage in the summer of 2024, but his health could no longer allow him to do so.
Ozzy thanked his fans, band, and crew for their support and unconditional loyalty. Since this announcement, the singer hasn’t been seen in public. However, he was recently spotted enjoying quality time with his family.
