The Ozzman cometh after all: Ozzy Osbourne, who was forced to postpone -- and then ultimately cancel -- his October San Diego tour date, has officially announced a 2019 make-up show. Heavy metal's legendary "Prince of Darkness" will now headline Mattress Firm Amphitheatre on July 23, 2019.
Osbourne, who has recently been battling an infection and complications from hand surgery, was originally due to perform at the Chula Vista venue on Oct. 9. That show was pushed back to Oct. 18 before the singer announced on Oct. 11 that he was scrapping it altogether, along with three other West Coast shows.
Tickets for the July 23, 2019 show are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com, while tickets for the original Oct. 9 show will be honored at the new date. According to Live Nation San Diego: "If you are unable to attend the new date, refunds are available at the point of purchase."
The show is part of Osbourne's "No More Tours 2," a trek billed as the singer's official farewell to more than five decades of touring.
Ozzy, who has sold more than 100 million records since getting his start in the 1960s, is, of course, known for fronting both Black Sabbath and one of the more unforgettable MTV reality-TV series of all time, "The Osbournes."
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee has played in San Diego in the past, including a solo show in 2007 at Sports Arena, as well as an appearance at the same venue with Black Sabbath on the "Never Say Die! Tour" in 1978 -- Osbourne's last full tour prior to the band's reunion nearly a decade later.
