It was a little premature for Sharon and Jack Osbourne to say Ozzy is on the mend and back to normal after a bout with pneumonia — he’s pulled the plug on all his performances for the remainder of the year.
His spokeswoman says all North American and European shows have been postponed as he “recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia.” He reportedly fell at home.
And Ozzy says, “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 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. Because some of the 2019 dates were festival appearances, not all will be rescheduled.
