Ozzy Osbourne has announced he is postponing his remaining 2019 tour dates, including his scheduled concert at Rocklahoma in May.

The heavy metal superstar is recovering from a fall sustained while he was sick with pneumonia, a statement says.

Ozzy “fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery last month,” according to the statement.

The shows not connected to festivals will be rescheduled and original tickets will be honored.

“Because some of the 2019 dates were festival appearances, not all will be rescheduled,” the statement says.

“I can’t believe I have to reschedule more tour dates," Ozzy said. "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!”
