When it was announced that Ozzy Osbourne was going to have to push his four remaining dates on this tour into 2019, the reason given was that Osbourne was likely to require another surgery on his hand. Today, Osbourne's wife Sharon delivered the news on The Talk that Ozzy is going back to the hospital today to undergo the procedure.

"His hand hasn't healed and it's one of these things where they go, 'No, tomorrow you're going to be fine.' But it hasn't been fine and in fact he's going into the hospital today and he's going to have another procedure done on his hand," stated Osbourne (as seen in the video above.

"He feels he's let down his audience but I hope that everyone understands," says Sharon of Ozzy's dismay at having to put off the remaining dates. "He's gonna be back," she added. The four stops affected are Los Angeles, Chula Vista and Mountain View, California, as well as a show in Las Vegas.

The rescheduled shows have not been announced as of yet, but Osbourne has said that all four stops will be made up in 2019 and that fans are advised to hold onto their tickets, which will be honored at the new dates. Those wishing to seek refunds may do so at the point of purchase.
