Based on advice from doctors, Ozzy osbourne has postponed the remaining two dates (Friday, December 10 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri and Sunday, December 12 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota) on his current U.S. tour. The Madman has contracted an ear infection that will prevent him from performing. The tickets for the two shows will be honored for the rescheduled dates — Minneapolis on Wednesday, January 12 and St. Louis on Friday, January 14 (with special guest Slash) — and refunds are available at point of purchase.
Osbourne’s 2011 dates get underway January 12 in Minneapolis. The six-week 2011 trek will include a pair of intimate shows: January 26 at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix and February 1 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Ozzy’s longtime friend and musical collaborator Slash will open all the concerts on the second leg.

Ozzy Osbourne will publish a book called “Ask Dr. Ozzy” next year. The book will be co-written with Chris Ayres, who collaborated with Ozzy on his memoir “I Am Ozzy”, and is a spin-off of the singer’s ongoing column in England’s Sunday Times in which he offers medical advice. According to the publisher, the book will “tell incredible survival stories not found in his memoir, offer advice that no human should follow, and shed light on his seemingly superhuman ability to keep breathing.” An October 2011 release is expected.
