OZZY OSBOURNE told the crowd at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan — the singer's first stop after returning to the post of headliner at this year's Ozzfest on Wednesday — that they were in wife/manager Sharon's thoughts, saying, "She's right here (in spirit)...I love you guys."Osbourne also updated his fans on Sharon's battle with colon cancer. "Sharon's had two chemo treatments and we're gonna kick this fucker. We're going to kick cancer's ass," Ozzy said before performing his song, "Believer". Osbourne had announced he would be leaving Ozzfest for three weeks to be with Sharon for her chemotherapy sessions. But after reportedly passing out during the first one, she is said to have ordered him back on the road and he wound up missing just two shows in Ohio before returning to the tour on Wednesday. SYSTEM OF A DOWN closed the concerts Ozzy missed. Sharon's chemotherapy is being filmed for the second season of the family's MTV reality series, The Osbournes.
