The rock icon postponed the dates due to an infection in his hand.

Ozzy Osbourne promised his No More Tours 2 outing was going to be his last, but he's not done yet. The rock icon has rescheduled four U.S. dates after canceling the final gigs on his North American leg due to an infection that required surgery on his right hand. Those four dates, which were originally slated for early October, have now been moved to July 2019.

They include: July 20 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, July 23 at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, Calif., July 27 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif., and July 29 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. It was unclear at press time who the support act will be for the rescheduled shows.

"I'm so fu**ing bummed about cancelling these shows," Osbourne said in a release after announcing the original cancelations. "The tour had been going great and we were really looking forward to these last few gigs. We're hoping everyone will be patient and we'll look forward to seeing them at the shows next year." 

Osbourne underwent hand surgery on Oct. 6 at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and was expected to return to the stage the same week. His doctors later said that the injury might require further surgery to treat multiple infections in his right hand.
