An Ozzy Osbourne show at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View has been postponed after the former Black Sabbath frontman needed emergency surgery on his hand Saturday morning, he said in a statement.
Osbourne was scheduled to take the stage at 8:50 p.m. as part of the “No More Tours 2” tour, a name that took on a second meaning when Saturday night’s show had to be postponed due to the singer’s hospitalization.
Osbourne is recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where, in the coming days, doctors will monitor the infection that required surgery.
The show scheduled for Saturday night will instead take place Tuesday, Oct. 16; the opener has not yet been announced.
Some fans were in disbelief over the cancellation.
“Is this show cancelled or is the announcement someone’s attempt to get better parking?” asked Lance Pester on the Shoreline Amphitheatre website.
Others were just upset.
“A refund doesn’t even begin to cover the level of frustration me and the wife feel,” wrote CA Colby on Facebook. “This was our anniversary gift to each other. We drove 5 hours to get here and paid for an Airbnb.”
Osbourne will resume playing previously scheduled tour dates Oct. 9 at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista. Anyone with tickets to the Oct. 6 show can use them at the rescheduled date, Oct. 16, or claim a refund at the point of purchase, according to the venue.
