First off, the bad news. Ozzy has a stress fracture in his leg
and flew home from New Orleans earlier today to see his doctors
and rest and recuperate. Here is the official press statement:


Ozzy Osbourne has been forced by doctors to postpone ten dates
on the Merry Mayhem tour due to a stress fracture in his leg.
The fracture occurred when Ozzy fell coming out of the shower
before the Tucson show on 10/31. He was unaware that the leg
was fractured and continued to perform each night until
the pain became unbearable. It was only yesterday that Ozzy
went to the doctor and discovered that his fall had resulted in
a stress fracture injury to his leg. The doctor immediately
ordered Ozzy to stay off his leg and to cease touring to
prevent further injury.

Ozzy is flying back to Los Angeles today to consult with his
personal physician to assess the extent of his injuries and to
determine when he can resume touring. The dates will remain
postponed until otherwise notified.

The dates immediately affected are as follows:

11/9 Houston, TX / Compaq Center
11/10 Bossier City, LA / CenturyTel Arena
11/12 Knoxville, TN / Thompson Boling Arena
11/14 Nashville, TN / Gaylord Entertainment Center
11/15 Cleveland, OH / Gund Arena
11/17 Cincinnati, OH / Firstar Center
11/19 Birmingham, AL / BJCC
11/21 West Palm Bch, FL / Mars Music Amphitheater
11/23 Greensboro, NC / Greensboro Coliseum
11/24 Atlanta, GA / Philips Arena

Further news regarding Ozzy Osbourne's condition, and the
rescheduling of the dates postponed, will be forthcoming as
soon as it becomes available.


Yes, Ozzy played at the MTV Sports and Music Festival in Vegas
last month but sadly he didn't pop an olley. (He left his board
at home, y'see.) He did, however, perform three songs during
his first public concert with Zakk Wylde since 1992. The set,
part of MTV's Sports and Music festivities in the downtown
section of Las Vegas, will air November 15 at 5pm ET on MTV.
Don't miss it!

Remember back on 10/20/01 when i said, "WHERE IS OZZY ON THIS LOUD?"
I think that maybe the Loud programers read the loud community... or something!
Is that luck or what? I expect a lot of crap on the Loud 'Rage Page' now... I mean Ozzy is cool, really cool, but having a whole Loud of just Ozzy... its a bit much.
Its a metal show... not an Ozzy show!
I guess its just a one time thing anyway.. sit back and enjoy.
