Ozzy Osbourne Postpones All 2019 Tour Dates

It was just the other day that I was wondering how the legendary Ozzy Osbourne was coming along after his recent need to postpone some dates on his “No More Tours 2” adventures and while sitting at a press conference for the Lucha Libre, I received the following press statement and wasted no time in sharing it with you all. Read on.

The Press Release:
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.

While we just love the live music scene here at the PiercingMetal High Command, we don’t manage to get to many of the awesome festivals that take place across our own country and abroad. However, since the readership is vast and often reaches way outside of our humble NYC dominion, we make sure to help to raise awareness of what is coming up and that brings me to the news about this years ROCKLAHOMA Festival which as you probably realized will take place in Oklahoma.

It was only under two weeks ago that we shared the news about Ozzy Osbourne being hospitalized due to the flu (seen HERE) and sadly this ended up becoming pneumonia which is not good at all and finds the musician cancelling numerous live performances to properly recover. Earlier this morning his media team shared the following information.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has announced that he will now cancel shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. This follows news of the postponement of the entire UK and European leg of his “NO MORE TOURS 2” tour on doctors’ orders.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I am going to repeat my last closing commentary. In addition to saying “Get Well Soon Ozzy”, I want to stress that all of you be careful out there and especially those of you who are always in big crowds. It doesn’t hurt to carry a small bottle of Purell with you and a packet of Kleenex tissues. During cold and flu season I’d eliminate hand shaking in full and move to fist bumps. Wash your hands often and cover your mouth when you cough to prevent ruining someone else’s day. Sorry for being preachy but I am on the trains every single day and night and sometimes the behavior of other passengers makes me want to run for the hills but I can’t since I am trapped in the car. Once again I say “Get Well Soon Ozzy” and you people be careful as well.

It was just about a week ago that we shared the news about Ozzy’s European “No More Tours 2” being postponed due to illness (seen HERE in the event that you missed it). Sadly, Metal’s Prince Of Darkness is still fighting a nasty bug….

Yesterday, Sharon Osbourne alerted all of Ozzy’s Legions about his being admitted to the hospital based on complications from the flu. Speaking frankly, its better that he is under a doctors observation because this years strain of flu has been nasty and stays with you. It seems that everyone I talk to has gotten a bit of it and even I did back in January despite getting the yearly shot. Ugh. No fun.
