Ozzy Osbourne continues to struggle with his health. The Prince of Darkness has been forced to postpone all remaining 2019 farewell tour dates in North America and Europe due to an injury sustained while recovering from pneumonia.
The Black Sabbath star delivered the sad tidings via an MSO press release on April 4 after previously postponing tours of Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Europe earlier this year due to an upper-respiratory infection. While recovering from the infection, the ailing rocker fell and aggravated an old injury sustained back in a 2003 ATV mishap.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is currently recuperating in his Los Angeles home under his doctor's care. The “Crazy Train” hitmakers were originally scheduled to launch the 2019 North American leg of his No More Tours 2 on May 28 in Atlanta.
The multi-platinum seller expressed “disbelief” in finding out that more tour postponements would be necessary. The waylaid metal star revealed his anger and frustration at being prevented from touring but remained grateful to fans for their ongoing support.
“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” writes Ozzy in a press release. “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.”
The farewell world tour will re-launch in 2020 with newly rescheduled dates, starting in February. Fans are asked to retain their tickets, which will be honored at the rescheduled shows. For more information, click here.
