Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan, which were part of his No More Tours 2 tour. The cancellation follows the postponement of his UK and European trek as the doctors have now advised the Prince of Darkness to stay home for six weeks with no travel. Osbourne was recently hospitalized due to flu complications, which he has since developed pneumonia.

“Ozzy has announced that he will now cancel shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. This follows news of the postponement of the entire UK and European leg of his “NO MORE TOURS 2” tour on doctors’ orders.
“Ozzy recently developed pneumonia and has spent some time in hospital. Thankfully he is now through the worst part,” says Sharon Osbourne. “His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel.”
Ozzy was scheduled to tour Australia on March 9th, which soon followed dates in New Zealand as well as headlining Japan’s Download Festival on March 21st. The next scheduled date is for Osbourne to headline this year’s Rocklahoma festival followed by his summer North American No More Tours 2 with Megadeth. There have been no updates to determine if his upcoming North American tour is affected just yet. In the meantime, we hope Ozzy gets well soon.
