Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled a string of tour dates while he recovers from pneumonia.
A post shared on the Black Sabbath star’s Twitter account on Tuesday morning said planned performances in Australia, New Zealand and Japan have been axed.
The heavy metal star was due to play shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Christchurch, Auckland and Chiba in March.
Ozzy’s Twitter account attributed a quote to wife Sharon that said: “Ozzy recently developed pneumonia & has spent some time in hospital. He is through the worst part.”
“His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for full 6 weeks.”
The 70-year-old rocker was admitted to hospital earlier this month suffering ‘complications from flu’.
Last week devoted wife Sharon revealed he had been taken out of intensive care and breathing on his own again.
In a now edited tweet – seen by the Daily Star – Sharon wrote:
“He’s out of the ICU and he’s doing great. “He’s breathing on his own.”
