Ozzy Osbourne Postpones All 2019 Concert Dates Amid Injury & Health Issues

Just weeks after his guitarist Bernie Torme died, Ozzy Osbourne has announced he is postponing all 2019 concert dates to focus on his health.


Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne took to Instagram on Thursday to announce that all his 2019 tour dates will be postponed till further notice. The singer is recovering from an injury and pneumonia.

The 70-year-old self-proclaimed “Prince of Darkness” fell at his Los Angeles home earlier this year. The fall aggravated old injuries from a 2003 all-terrain vehicle accident and caused the singer to need surgery last month.


“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” Osbourne said in the statement. “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!”

Earlier this year, the former Black Sabbath rocker was also forced to postpone his European tour. He had developed an upper-respiratory infection caused by the flu. Doctors warned him that it could turn into pneumonia and he was later hospitalized for complications resulting from the virus.


It's not the first time Osbourne is suffering from poor health. Last October, the “Paranoid” singer canceled a show after he developed an infection in his hand that required surgery.

The announcement to postpone the 2019 shows comes weeks after Bernie Torme died at age 66. "The Ozzy" shows are expected to be rescheduled beginning in February 2020 and concert-goers are advised to hold on to their tickets because they will be honored for the new dates.

Osbourne told Rolling Stone magazine last year that this tour would be his final tour. He said:

“I’m not retiring. It’s ‘No More Tours,’ so I’m just not doing world tours anymore. I’m still going to be doing gigs, but I’m not going on tour for six months at a time anymore. I’d like to spend some time at home.”
