As reported last month, the veteran heavy metal artist and reality television star sought treatment for Parkinson's Disease-like tremors, which forced him to cancel fall European touring plans.
"It was at the point where it felt as if this problem was practically destroying my life along with my self-esteem," he said at the time. "I was no longer comfortable being around people, which, as you can imagine, is not the best trait for a performer."
The new slate of dates will kick off Jan. 15 in Oberhausen, Germany, and close with hometown shows Feb. 24 and 26 Birmingham, England.
Osbourne can be heard dueting with his daughter Kelly on the single "Changes." A cover of a Black Sabbath classic, it's the title track of her recently released Sanctuary album, a revamped and reissued version of "Shut Up," released in November 2002 via Epic.
Last week, the father/daughter duo performed the song on the syndicated "Sharon Osbourne" show. According to his official Web site, MTV will begin airing the video on Monday (Nov. 24).
