Osbourne Postpones Tour Dates After Hand Surgery

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - If you've got tickets to see Ozzy Osbourne at the Hollywood Bowl on Thursday, you'll need to adjust your schedule.

The former Black Sabbath frontman announced today his hospitalization for an infection in his hand has forced him to postpone more shows, including this week's gig in Hollywood.

Osbourne was hospitalized over the weekend and originally only canceled his Saturday concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. On Monday, however, Osbourne posted an update on Twitter, saying he expects to be discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Tuesday and would have to reschedule more shows.

Osbourne's appearance at the Hollywood Bowl, originally set for Thursday, is now scheduled for Oct. 15. His concert scheduled for Tuesday at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista has been rescheduled for Oct. 18.

His first post-hospitalization performance will be Saturday in Las Vegas.

The concerts are part of Osbourne's “No More Tours 2” farewell world tour. Osbourne's rescheduled concerts mark the end of the North American leg of the tour, which is scheduled to conclude in March 2019 in New Zealand.

“I've been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers,” Osbourne said in February when announcing the tour dates. “I'm looking at this final tour as being a huge celebration for my fans and anyone who has enjoyed my music over the past five decades.”
