The Prince of Darkness has been forced to push his 2019 tour dates back a year.
Due to injury, Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to cancel all his 2019 tour dates, postponing them until 2020.
The former Black Sabbath frontman has had to cancel this year's stint of shows in North America and Europe, due to a fall in his LA home which aggravated injuries he picked up during an ATV accident back in 2003. That fall resulted in the Grammy Award-winner needing surgery.
Under doctors' orders he will be recovering at home and not performing this year, but the music legend released a statement expressing his disappointment at having to move the tour dates.
Ozzy said: “I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates”
“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 news follows just a week after a campaign was launched calling for Ozzy Osbourne to be knighted.
A tweet from his official account read: "OZZY will postpone all his tour dates as he recovers from injury sustained while dealing with pneumonia. Ozzy fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery. Shows will be rescheduled beginning in Feb 2020"
