Rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been seen out in public for the first time since announcing that he was retiring from touring.

Osbourne was seen walking with a cane in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Osbourne was reportedly entering a medical center, but still seemingly in good spirits.

The singer shared the news of his retirement on Tuesday in a statement, citing health issues as the cause.

He explained, “I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really F**KS ME UP, more than you will ever know.”

Osbourne says he will continue performing one-off shows.
