Ozzy Osbourne will commit to going through with his farewell tour, if his health allows. 

"This year has been hell for me," he said during CBS' Grammy Red Carpet Live program. "I've had surgery on my neck. I've announced to the world that I've got Parkinson's. It's been one rock 'n roll year for me."

The metal legend revealed his shocking Parkinson's diagnosis last week, sharing that he has PRKN 2, a form of Parkinson's disease. He discussed on Good Morning America that he discovered this while in recovery from a severe fall in his home last February that dislodged metal rods in his neck, inserted into his body after an ATV accident several years earlier.

Supported by a cane as he walked the red carpet with his daughter Kelly, he responded to questions about his upcoming farewell tour, "“If I’m well enough, I’ll work towards it. I’m having physical therapy every day, five days a week. I’m trying, doing the best I can. Neck surgery’s not easy.”

Kelly stood in support by his side, adding "Seeing how far dad’s come this year and how far he’s come in the last week alone has just been incredible. I think coming out and telling his truth has been a weight lifted off of his shoulders. And even like his physical therapist is saying how far you have moved forward in this last week is insane.”

During the Grammys ceremony on Sunday, the Prince of Darkness attended with his wife Sharon to present the award for Best Rap/Sung Performance, and to introduce singer H.E.R.'s performance. While Sharon did most of the talking during the show, Osbourne clearly still enjoyed himself as he cracked a few jokes onstage.

His firs solo album release in a decade, Ordinary Man, hits the shelves February 21. Tickets to his upcoming tour are available here. See the full tour schedule below.
