April 5 (UPI) -- Ozzy Osbourne announced on Instagram that he is postponing all of his 2019 tour dates as he recovers from an injury.
The injury was sustained during the rock legend's recent bout of pneumonia which led to a number of tour dates being canceled in February. Osbourne was diagnosed with pneumonia after being hospitalized for complications from the flu.
Osbourne injured himself after falling at his home in Los Angeles which aggravated years-old injuries stemming from his 2003 ATV accident that required surgery last month. He will remain under doctor's care in Los Angeles.
"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," Osbourne said on Thursday. "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!"
The postponed concerts, which affect shows across North America and Europe, will be rescheduled in February 2020. Fans are being asked to hold onto their original tickets which will be honored on the rescheduled dates.
Osbourne's planned Los Angeles show at the Hollywood Bowl will be rescheduled in July 2020 while the dates for his 2020 shows in the U.K. and Europe will be announced in the coming weeks.

OZZY will postpone all his 2019 tour dates, inclusive of shows in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter and 2019 Grammy® Special Merit Award recipient fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery last month. OSBOURNE will remain under doctor’s care in Los Angeles as he recovers. Says OZZY: “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!” The shows will be rescheduled beginning in February 2020 and concert-goers 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. Below are the new North American dates; the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl show will be rescheduled in July 2020, exact date TBA. The 2020 UK and European dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
