Ozzy Osbourne injury delays 2019 Pittsburgh show
First Mick Jagger, now Ozzy Osbourne.
Another septuagenarian British rock star has had to postpone a tour due to health reasons.
Osbourne announced Thursday he is postponing all of his 2019 tour dates in North America and Europe, including a June 13 appearance at Key Bank Pavilion in Burgettstown, because of injuries sustained in a fall at his Los Angeles home.
The fall, which happened during a recent bout with pneumonia, “aggravated years-old injuries that required surgery last month,” according to a press release. Osbourne remains under a doctor’s care as he recovers.
Ticket holders are being asked to hold on to their original tickets as all non-festival shows are set to be rescheduled for 2020. Osbourne’s show in Burgettstown has been rescheduled for June 11, 2020.
“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” said Osbourne in a statement. “Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. Just know that I am getting better every day…I will fully recover…I will finish my tour…I will be back!”
On Monday, Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger announced he is postponing a North American tour because he will undergo heart valve replacement surgery.
