On the very same week that Rolling Stones’ front man Mick Jagger found himself in the hospital undergoing heart surgery comes word that rocker Ozzy Osbourne’s health troubles are continuing. And sadly, it looks like these music powerhouses aren’t unbreakable after all.

In Osbourne’s case, his team says that due to an injury he suffered while dealing with a bout of pneumonia, the Prince of Darkness will now need to postpone all of his 2019 tour dates.

“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” Osbourne said in an Instagram post on Thursday (April 4.) “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 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!” 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. Below are the new North American dates; the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl show will be rescheduled in July 2020, exact date TBA. The 2020 UK and European dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

While wife Sharon Osbourne has yet to comment on her husband’s condition on her various social media channels, Ozzy’s team went on to say in the Instagram post that the injury came as a result of a fall that further aggravated injuries that the rocker had already suffered in a 2003 ATV accident. The postponed 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.

Get better Ozzy!
