Ozzy Osbourne cancels 2019 tour plans following surgery

Ozzy Osbourne has postponed all dates on his 2019 tour as he recovers from surgery over an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia.

The rocker fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required surgery last month; he’ll remain under doctor’s care as he recovers.

“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” says Ozzy. “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!”

The shows will be rescheduled beginning in February 2020 and concert-goers are being asked to hold onto their original tickets, as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates; not all will be rescheduled as some of the 2019 dates were festival appearances.

Osbourne has released a revised schedule for the North American shows next year, with 2020 UK and European dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
