Ozzy Osbourne Postpones All 2019 Tour Dates
Ozzy Osbourne has postponed all his 2019 tour dates, both in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The Black Sabbath frontman fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required surgery last month. Ozzy will remain under doctor's care in Los Angeles as he recovers.
The Prince of Darkness 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!"
Ozzy was in a coma for eight days in December of 2003 when he accidentally crashed an ATV while riding on his estate grounds. He broke his collarbone, several ribs and a neck vertebra in the incident, of which he told us he had very little memory. "All I remember was getting on the quad bike and that was it. I don't remember anything else. I didn't know what was real, I didn't know whether I was dreaming. I kept believing, when I'd come in and out of this coma, that they were moving me around from different hospitals, so it was really weird. It was like going on this incredible journey."
Most of the 2019 shows on Ozzy's last full world tour will be rescheduled beginning in February 2020. Fans are being asked to hold onto their original tickets, as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Because some of the 2019 dates were festival appearances, not all will be rescheduled.
