UPDATE: Ozzy has now canceled the remaining four dates of his North American "No More Tours 2" trek. Following additional evaluation from his doctors, the metal OG will likely require another surgery in the coming days to treat multiple infections in his right hand. "I'm so fucking bummed about canceling these shows," Ozzy commented. "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."

UPDATE, 10/8/18: Under the advice of his doctors, Ozzy has postponed two more shows as his recovers from his surgery this weekend: Tuesday, October 9th's concert at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista and Thursday, October 11's gig at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, will be rescheduled, respectively, to Monday, October 15th in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl and Thursday, October 18th in Chula Vista (San Diego) at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre. In addition, the Mountain View, California, show at Shoreline Amphitheatre, which was previously rescheduled for Tuesday, October 16th, has been moved to Saturday, October 20th.

ORIGINAL STORY, 10/6/18: Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to postpone his Saturday, October 6th, stop of his "No More Tours 2" tour, at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, due to illness. The Prince of Fucking Darkness underwent surgery on his hand this morning (Saturday, October 6) due an infection and will remain under doctor's care at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles for a couple of days. Ozzy's North American trek is expected to resume on Tuesday, October 9th, at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista before this leg of the tour wraps with shows at the Hollywood Bowl (October 11th) in Los Angeles and Las Vegas (October 13th) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Ozzy shared the photo below from his hospital bed.

The October 6th concert has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 16th, with the support act to be announced (Stone Sour is opening the show on the current tour). Ticket holders for the October 6th show should hold on to their tickets, as they will be honored at the rescheduled date on October 16th. Refunds are also available at point of purchase.

Ozzy recently clarified that, while this trek marks his final world out, he is not planning on retiring any time soon. "I have to say this, 'I'm not retiring!'" he stated in an August Q&A. " I'm just not doing world tours anymore. I'm still doing gigs. I'm still going to do shows, just no more world tours. They'll say, 'You said you were going to retire on the No More Tours Tour 25 years ago,' but I'm not retiring!"
