Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack has offered more details about the injury that caused the BLACK SABBATH singer to cancel all live appearances through the end of the year.
In early April, Ozzy postponed all his 2019 tour dates, both in North America and Europe, as he recovered from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The singer fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required new surgery.
Jack was asked for an update on Ozzy's health status during an appearance earlier this week on SiriusXM's "Jim Norton & Sam Roberts". "He's doing good," the 33-year-old said, adding that Ozzy's injury was sustained when "he tripped over a shoe getting into bed after peeing." Jack went on to say that Ozzy was "so bummed out" over having to cancel more shows.
In a separate interview with People, Jack said about his father: "He's back to being his cynical old self, [which] is always a good sign. When he's complaining about mundane things, you know he's good. Yeah, he's back to normal."
Most of the 2019 shows on what is being billed as Ozzy's last full world tour will be rescheduled beginning in February 2020. Fans are being asked to hold on to their original tickets, as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates.
The 70-year-old Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee has battled a variety of health issues since kicking off his farewell "No More Tours 2" tour last summer. He contacted a staph infection in October that forced the initial postponement of his North American tour dates.
In January, Osbourne scrapped his European tour because of an upper respiratory infection that turned into pneumonia, forcing him to cancel dates in Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
