Ozzy Osbourne announced today that his 2019 tour is being postponed due to health concerns. Ozzy was originally set to perform in Las Vegas on October 13, 2018, before having to postpone to July 20, 2019 due to an infection in his hand. Now the July 20, 2019 date has been pushed back to next year.
The new date for Ozzy's Las Vegas appearance is July 31, 2020 at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Here is the official release regarding the latest tour postponement:
Ozzy Osbourne will postpone all his 2019 tour dates, inclusive of shows in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter and 2019 Grammy® Special Merit Award recipient fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery last month. Osbourne will remain under doctor’s care in Los Angeles as he recovers.
Says Ozzy: “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!”
