Ozzy Osbourne has postponed all his 2019 tour dates, both in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The Black Sabbath frontman fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required surgery last month. Ozzy will remain under doctor’s care in Los Angeles as he recovers.
Ozzy was in a coma for eight days in December of 2003 when he accidentally crashed an ATV while riding on his estate grounds. He broke his collarbone, several ribs and a neck vertebra in the incident. Most of the 2019 shows on Ozzy’s last full world tour will be rescheduled beginning in February 2020. Fans 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.
Meanwhile, TMZ reported that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s son Jack was attacked by stranger while he was at a coffee shop. Jack was reportedly sitting on the shop’s sidewalk patio in Studio City on Wednesday when someone who appeared to be homeless came out of nowhere and punched him on the right side of his head. Jack managed to throw his coffee at the alleged attacker, who fled but was later apprehended by police and arrested for battery and assault. A rep for Jack said he was doing fine after the incident.
