Ozzy Osbourne recently had to cancel all his 2019 tour dates due to an injury that he sustained during his recent bout with pneumonia. Now, his wife and manager Sharon has shared some more details about the accident, which aggravated old injuries sustained during a 2003 ATV crash and required Ozzy to have surgery last month.

“He, at the beginning of the year, had a bad flu that went to bronchitis, that went to pneumonia,” Sharon explained to her fellow moderators on her daytime talk show The Talk. “And then, when he had the flu, he came out of hospital and he had a bad accident at home. He fell.”

“He fell in the middle of the night,” she continued, fighting back tears. “Years ago, previously, he’d had a motorbike accident where he was in a coma for days. What he’d done more is he re-injured his back and neck and shoulders, and all of the metal rods and everything that were put in his body were dislodged. So we had to cancel his year of dates.”

Sharon added that Ozzy is doing “great,” but he has certainly been through a lot lately. All his 2019 tour dates — other than festival appearances — are being rescheduled for next year. His postponed European tour with Judas Priest has yet to get new dates, but you can see Ozzy’s current itinerary for 2020, as it stands, below.
