The Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne was forced to postpone all his 2019 tour dates in North America and Europe due to an injury he sustained while suffering from pneumonia this year.
According to a post on his website, Osbourne recently fell at his home in Los Angeles, aggravating old injuries from an ATV accident in 2003, which required him to get surgery last month. Now, he must remain under doctor’s care in Los Angeles and is unable to tour until he recovers.
“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” Osbourne said of the postponement. “Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I’m grateful for the love and support I’m getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it’s really what’s keeping me going.
“Just know that I am getting better every day…I will fully recover…I will finish my tour…I will be back!”
“No More Tours 2,” which was supposed to kick-off another leg in the U.S. this May and run through late July, will be rescheduled to February 2020. Concertgoers are told to hold onto their tickets, as they will be honored at the new show date.
Osbourne has been suffering from multiple illnesses over the past few months. Back in October 2018, Osbourne underwent emergency hand surgery and was forced to cancel his remaining 2018 tour dates after learning he had to undergo another surgery to treat multiple infections. Then, earlier this year, he had the flu and postponed his European shows with Judas Priest, set to run from January through March. Additionally, he had to cancel gigs in New Zealand, Japan, and Australia in March after developing pneumonia.
