Ozzy Osbourne has postponed his Oct. 6 concert at Shoreline Amphitheatre at Mountain View due to a medical situation.

The heavy metal hero, known for both his work with the legendary Black Sabbath and in his own multi-platinum-selling solo career, reportedly needed to have surgery on his hand.

“The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter is being treated for an infection, which required surgery on his hand this morning (Saturday, October 6),” according to a news release. “Osbourne will spend a couple of days at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles where he’ll remain under doctor’s care as they monitor the infection.”

The Shoreline show, which is part of Osbourne’s No More Tours 2 farewell tour as well as this year’s 107.7 The Bone Presents Bone Bash XVIII concert, has been postponed to Oct. 16.

“Ticketholders for the October 6 show should hold on to their tickets, as they will be honored at the rescheduled date on October 16.  Refunds are also available at point of purchase,” according to news release.

Included with the news release was a picture of Osbourne showing his hurt right hand from his hospital bed.
