Black Sabbath postpone Vancouver farewell concert

Black Sabbath have postponed Wednesday, February 3rd’s farewell tour concert in Vancouver, BC as Ozzy Osbourne continues to be sidelined by sinusitis.

“Due to continued severe sinusitis, Ozzy Osbourne will be unable to perform with Black Sabbath as scheduled,” posted the band. “The Vancouver performance has been postponed. Details regarding the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as it is available. Please hold on to your tickets until further details are available.”

The Vancouver show is the third Canadian date this week to be put on the shelf due to the health issue, following the postponement of a January 30 concert in Edmonton and a February 1 stop in Calgary, Alberta.

The next date on Black Sabbath’s 6-week North American tour is scheduled for February 6 at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, WA.

The farewell run by Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butlerwithout original drummer Bill Ward – was launched in Omaha, Nebraska on January 20 with the first North American leg set to wrap up with two shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden at the end of this month.
