Axl Rose, Dave Grohl and Phil Collins have all performed sitting down, so there's no reason why Ozzy Osbourne can't do it. And according to The Sun, that's exactly what he's contemplating.
The paper quotes a friend of his who says he's "refusing to give up on his hope of getting on stage despite his statement [that he can't tour] last month. He has declared: 'I am gonna get back on stage.' He still has issues with his balance and cannot stand unaided for long periods of time on his legs. It frustrates him that doing a full 90-minute show, filled with his famous stage stomping and crowd interactive moves, is off the table. But he is considering doing gigs in a throne, like what Axl did in 2016 with Guns n' Roses. He was really impressed by that move. And he feels Phil [Collins] showed that audiences do resonate with you."
The friend adds that Ozzy "worries that he may not be able to sit still, which could be challenging. But there is talk of bringing in some special effects and even stage machinery to have the chair move around. He feels a lot of options are on the table, but Oz is not ruling out Vegas or L.A. [residencies]."
And his wife and manager Sharon "is concerned about him being put through a heavy-duty workload around gigs. Firstly, she has deep concerns about his balance and wants him to get back to walking properly, before even discussing comebacks. And she is particularly worried about him losing his balance and suffering injuries."
Ozzy has Parkinson's Disease and is still recuperating from a spinal injury he suffered four years ago.
