It’s been a rough trot for Ozzy Osbourne. This year has seen the rocker cancel tour upon tour due to a variety of illnesses.
In January, Ozzy Osbourne was forced to postpone the U.K. and European leg of his No More Tours II, after he was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection. Then in February, Osbourne pulled out of his scheduled appearance at Download Festival in Japan and Australia citing a battle with pneumonia.
Now, Osbourne has announced that he will postpone all non-festival shows until 2020. This is reportedly due to a fall that Osbourne ha at his Los Angeles home. The fall consequently “aggravated years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV incident) that required surgery last month.”

Osbourne is currently under doctors care. The rocker released the following statement addressing the postponed dates:
“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates. Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I’m grateful for the love and support I’m getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it’s really what’s keeping me going. Just know that I am getting better every day…I will fully recover…I will finish my tour…I will be back!”
We shouldn’t worry about Ozzy, for the rocker believes he is “unsinkable.” In a recent interview, Ozzy opened up about all the near-death experiences he has faced over the course of his extraordinary life. Revealing that he once “died twice on the way to hospital.”
“I’ve fallen out of life shafts and windows. I broke my neck on a quad bike,” he recalled. “There was one time when I died twice on the way to hospital. I might be unsinkable!”
