Legendary singer Ozzy Osbourne has postponed all of his 2019 tour dates as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with pneumonia. According to a news release, Osbourne fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required surgery last month.
The 70-year-old Hall of Fame inductee expressed disappointment in a statement to fans.
“Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now,” Osborne says. “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 asked to hold onto their original tickets. See rescheduled dates below.
However, festival performances, including Rocklahoma, will not be rescheduled. Rocklahoma producers say they’re working on securing a replacement act.
“While there is no replacement for Ozzy yet, we are working diligently to find a new headliner and will update our fans as soon as we can,” exlains Rocklahoma Festival Producer and Talent Buyer Mike Ducharme. “We wish Ozzy a speedy recovery, and hope to see him on the Rocklahoma stage in the future.”
