Wednesday 20th February, 2019 10:19AM

UK heavy metal figurehead Ozzy Osbourne has sadly announced the cancellation of his upcoming New Zealand performances in Auckland and Wellington, due to "doctors orders arising from Osbourne’s recent illness." New Zealand metal maniacs need not despair, as legendary support act Judas Priest are still bringing their fist-pumping brand of British Steel to our shores, moving into the headline slot for the Spark Arena show, with support artists to be announced. Sharon Osbourne shared a statement on Ozzy's recent illness, stating “Ozzy recently developed pneumonia and has spent some time in hospital. Thankfully he is now through the worst part... His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel.” We wish the metal master all the best in his recovery and hope he returns to New Zealand soon.
