OZZY OSBOURNE - No More Tours 2with MEGADETH
June 13th, 2019 | KeyBank Pavilion
SHOW POSTPONED - NEW DATE - June 11th, 2020 | KeyBank Pavilion
ORIGINAL TICKETS FROM 2019 DATE WILL BE HONORED CONCERT-GOERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO HOLD ON TO PREVIOUS TICKET PURCHASES.
OZZY OSBOURNE will postpone all his 2019 tour dates, inclusive of shows in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Special Merit Award recipient fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery last month. OSBOURNE will remain under doctor’s care in Los Angeles as he recovers.
Says OZZY: “I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates. Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I’m grateful for the love and support I’m getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it’s really what’s keeping me going. Just know that I am getting better every day…I will fully recover…I will finish my tour…I will be back!”
The shows will be rescheduled beginning in February 2020 and concert-goers are being asked to hold onto their original tickets, as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Because some of the 2019 dates were festival appearances, not all will be rescheduled. Below are the new North American dates; the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl show will be rescheduled in July 2020, exact date TBA. The 2020 UK and European dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®- winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has announced additional North American tour dates for 2019. For these shows, OSBOURNE will be backed by his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards), withMegadeth supporting for the entire North American run.
The “NO MORE TOURS 2” tour launched in May 2018 in Santiago, Chile for solo shows in three countries followed by a six-week European leg of headlining solo dates and festival performances. A North American tour followed kicking off August 30 in Allentown, PA, with the
final four shows of that leg of the tour postponed for OZZY to recover from an infection. Those four shows--Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA, North Island Credit Union Amphitheatrein Chula Vista, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas- -will now conclude the 2019 dates. Tickets for these rescheduled dates are on sale now at LiveNation.com. The trek will also include a newly announced June 11 stop at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Prior to his 2019 dates, OZZY will headline a special New Year’s EveOZZFEST spectacular at the Forum in Los Angeles.
On his upcoming farewell world tour, produced by Live Nation, OSBOURNE will celebrate more thanfive decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which formed in 1968). This tour, expected to take OZZY around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows in the future. Throughout his career, OZZY has sold more than 100 million records.
This will mark the first time Megadeth will join OSBOURNE for a full tour, although they have performed together previously at OZZFEST and other festivals around the world. Megadeth burst onto the scene thirty years ago, virtually inventing a genre with their debut album Killing Is MyBusiness... And Business Is Good! (recently recognized by VH1 as the Greatest Thrash Metal Debut Album of All Time) sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades includinga 2017 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Metal Performance” for the title track of their fifteenth studio albumDystopia, 11 additional GRAMMY® nominations, a SILVER CLIO for their Dystopia campaign and scored five consecutive platinum albums—including 1992’s two-million-selling Countdown to Extinction.
