Ozzy Osbourne of Black Sabbath performs at Ozzfest 2016 at San Manuel Amphitheater on September 24, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

That hand infection is far worse than expected for Ozzy Osbourne, who is now canceling the remaining four dates of the North American leg of the “No More Tours 2” tour, which were already rescheduled due to said infection.

Per an official statement, “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 four canceled shows were originally scheduled as follows: Shoreline Amphitheatre At 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 following his initial prognosis from doctors. All four shows will be rescheduled for 2019.”

Ozzy issued his own personal statement that’s as follows: “I’m so fu**ing bummed about canceling these shows.  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.”

Tickets to the aforementioned shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates, while those seeking refunds can do so at their point of purchase.
