A fall at his home has led the former Black Sabbath frontman to postpone all 2019 dates until 2020.
Back in January, Ozzy Osbourne was forced to cancel his Dublin show at 3Arena due to pneumonia. An ensuing set of tour dates in Australia, New Zealand and Japan were cancelled as the illness persisted.
Now, more difficult news for Osbourne who is reportedly still dealing with pneumonia, compounded with an injury sustained from a fall at his Los Angeles home. A statement on twitter yesterday announced that all of his 2019 gigs would be cancelled to allow his recovery.
OZZY will postpone all his tour dates as he recovers from injury sustained while dealing with pneumonia. Ozzy fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery.
Shows will be rescheduled beginning in Feb 2020

A Facebook post further elaborated on the situation and shared this statement from Osbourne:
"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 Facebook post lists the rescheduled North American dates for 2020. His previously cancelled European dates were expected to be rescheduled to September 2019. Updated information about the 2020 dates for Europe and the UK is not yet available, but is expected to be released soon.
