Ozzy Osbourne, who is currently on the trek dubbed ‘No More Tours 2,’ was forced to postpone the rest of the tour due to multiple infections in his hand.
Earlier this week, the Prince of Darkness announced that he would have to reschedule three shows as he recovered from emergency hand surgery. The shows in California were moved to October 15 in Los Angeles, October 18 in Chula Vista, and October 20 in Mountain View. However, these three gigs, plus tomorrow’s show in Las Vegas, have been postponed.
According to his website, after following addition evaluation from his doctors, Osbourne will likely need another surgery on his hand to treat multiple infections.
“I’m so fu**ing bummed about cancelling these shows,” Osbourne said in a statement. “The tour had been going great and we were really looking forward to these last few gigs. We’re hoping everyone will be patient and we’ll look forward to seeing them at the shows next year.”
While there are no official rescheduled dates yet, the shows will take place in 2019. Ticketholders for the four shows are encouraged to hold onto their tickets to be honored at the new show date, however refunds are also available at point of purchase.
In January, Osbourne is slated to play the European leg of his tour with Judas Priest, making stops across the UK and Europe. Although ‘No More Tours 2’ was supposed to be Osbourne’s last tour, he is still expected to perform occasionally.
