Ozzy Osbourne disclosed that he is battling a form of Parkinson’s disease, but it will not affect his upcoming tour slated to kick off in Atlanta.

In a Tuesday interview on "Good Morning America," the rock icon and wife Sharon said the diagnosis arrived last February, following a litany of health issues, including a fall that damaged his nervous system.

According to Sharon, Osbourne, 71, is dealing with PRKN2.

“It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. It’s like you have a good day, a good day and then a really bad day,” she said in the interview.

Osbourne plans to travel to Switzerland this spring to meet with a professor who studies immune systems.

Meanwhile, his "No More Tours 2," which was postponed in 2019 during Osbourne's recurring health problems, will launch at 7:30 p.m. May 27 at State Farm Arena with Marilyn Manson opening. Tickets are still available. The road trip is scheduled through December.

During the “GMA” interview, he thanked fans for their patience and called them his “air.”

“I ain’t done yet,” he said. “I ain’t gonna go anywhere yet.”
