Ozzy Osbourne Cancels All Remaining North American Dates Due to "Multiple Infections"
Published Oct 11, 2018Making an already rocky farewell tour even rockier, Ozzy Osbourne has just cancelled all his remaining North American tour dates.
The Black Sabbath icon broke the bad news today about his "No More Tour 2," informing fans that the final four North American concerts are being called off. He does have his reasons, though.
As a post on Ozzy's site reads, "Following additional evaluation from his doctors, Osbourne will likely require another surgery in the coming days to treat multiple infections in his right hand."
The affected dates include Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA (October 6), Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista (October 9), the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (October 11) and MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (October 13).
The three California shows had previously been rescheduled due to health problems.
"I'm so fucking bummed about cancelling these shows," Osbourne wrote in a statement. "The tour had been going great and we were really looking forward to these last few gigs. We're hoping everyone will be patient and we'll look forward to seeing them at the shows next year."
On the plus side, all four shows are set to be rescheduled for 2019, and ticketholders can either hold on to their tickets until then or get refunds at point of purchase.
