Ozzy Osbourne Cancels 2020 North American Tour

Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his 2020 North American tour with Marilyn Manson. The singer is taking the time off so he can continue to focus on his health.

The following statement was shared:

“OZZY’s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow OSBOURNE to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new ORDINARY MAN album (out February 21), OSBOURNE will head to Europe for additional treatments.

“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” OSBOURNE said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.

“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”

Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. All refunds, including fees, will be returned directly to the credit card used. Additionally, ticketholders who purchased “No More Tours 2” tickets will have first access to tickets when the next tour is announced.”

Stone Temple Pilots Cancel Upcoming Acoustic Tour

Stone Temple Pilots have revealed that vocalist Jeff Gutt will be undergoing surgery for a “severely herniated disc.” As a result, the band’s upcoming acoustic tour has been cancelled.

The group commented:

“We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy.

Thankfully Jeff is expected to make a full recovery and we will continue with our Australian tour with Live and Bush in April, the summer tour with Nickelback, and we hope to reschedule the Perdida tour later this year.

Everyone who purchased tickets for the Perdida tour will get full refunds for their tickets at point of purchase.

Thank you all for your understanding. We love you all and hope to see you on the road again soon.”

As previously reported, Stone Temple Pilots’ new album “Perdida” will be released on February 7.

Benediction Cancel Latin American Tour Due To “Serious Health Problems”

Benediction have cancelled their Latin American tour. The band were forced to cancel the dates due to vocalist Dave Ingram suffering from “serious health problems.”

The group commented:

“Due to serious health problems suffered by vocalist Dave Ingram, the upcoming Benediction tour of Latin America has, unfortunately, had to be postponed.

Dave has had ongoing medical conditions including hip dysplasia and osteoporosis.

Over the Christmas period, his condition worsened and infection set into the bone. This requires treatment to reduce infection and immediate surgery. As such Dave was in no position to complete this tour. We did everything in our power to find a solution to get through this (even the possibility of a replacement vocalist) but to no avail.

I’m sure you appreciate that as friends we must put Dave’s health above all and as a band, we need to be there with you guys as Benediction, no replacements.

To this end, Dave will have the surgery and take a few months off to regain his strength, and we are at this moment rescheduling all of the shows.

We apologise to all involved in organising this and especially to our loyal fans, and we hope you understand.

Thank you for your support

Our new album release and summer shows will all go ahead as scheduled.

Keep watching for updates. We WILL be back.

KISS Cancel Australian Tour

KISS have been forced to cancel the Australian leg of their “End Of The Road” tour. The cancellation comes as a result of Paul Stanley’s illness.

The group issued the following statement:

“AUSTRALIAN TOUR CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS

Promoters One World Entertainment and TEG Live today announced that the KISS Australian tour, due to commence next Tuesday, has been cancelled due to illness.

KISS and both promoters are absolutely gutted by the news and sincerely apologize to fans.

Earlier this week it was announced that U.S doctors had advised Paul Stanley to rest due to a bad case of influenza, prompting the rescheduling of the tour’s first show in Perth to the end of the run and the cancellation of New Zealand.

It was hoped the extra few days rest would allow Stanley the chance for a complete recovery so the tour could proceed as planned.

However unfortunately this has not occurred. Stanley has an additional infection in his throat requiring complete vocal rest and medication for at least two weeks and possibly longer.

Paul Stanley said: “Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country. Our connection to you is unparalleled and decades deep.

“We waited as long as we could and held out hope to the last minute that my situation would clear up and we would be able to march forward. Doctor’s orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we now find ourselves with no choice but to surrender. With heavy hearts, KISS.”

With all concerts heavily sold and side view tickets released to cater for demand, to say the ‘End Of The Road’ shows were eagerly-awaited is a massive understatement. KISS was also scheduled to perform at the after-race concert at the Supercars Newcastle event on November 23.

Promoters One World Entertainment and TEG Live said: “We are devastated with the cancellation of the Australian tour. We’ve been in constant contact with the band in the past few days hoping for a positive outcome. We know how much fans were looking forward to the tour. We send our best wishes to Paul for a speedy recovery.”

REFUNDS
Tickets purchased by credit or debit card will be refunded in full (including ticket insurance premium, if relevant) and patrons do not need to take any action. Patrons should allow up to 10 working days for the refund to appear in their account.

Patrons who purchased tickets in an Agency using cash or EFTPOS will be contacted via phone in the next 15 days to arrange for a full refund.

Alternatively, you can contact Ticketek at https://help.ticketek.com.au/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360000131288.

For Supercars Newcastle 500 tickets the concert portion will be refunded, being $65 for Gold tickets and $115 for One Last KISS tickets. All refunds will go back to the credit card it was purchased on by the 6 December.”

Make Them Suffer Drop Off “Octane Accelerator Tour”

Make Them Suffer have dropped off SiriusXM’s “Octane Accelerator Tour.” The band were unable to make the trek due to immigration issues.

The group commented:

“It’s no secret that we’ve not yet made it to a show on the ‘Octane Accelerator Tour‘. Unfortunately we have had some serious setbacks with immigration, and were unable to secure the visas we needed in time for these shows with Ice Nine Kills, Fit For a King, Light the Torch & Awake at Last.

Touring internationally can be full of pitfalls for musicians, and immigration difficulties and UCIS delays for artists entering the United States are nothing new. We’ve tried everything in our power to fix this problem but unfortunately it’s completely out of our hands.

For our fans in the US, fear not, we will return in 2020, and we’ll be doing it with a new album under our belts & visas in hand. – Sean, Nick, Booké, Jaya & Jordan“

Falling In Reverse Cancel Fall Tour With Crown The Empire & Tom MacDonald

Falling In Reverse have cancelled their fall tour with Crown The Empire and Tom MacDonald. The cancellation comes as guitarist Derek Jones’ fiancée was recently hospitalized due to cancer.

Ronnie Radke commented:

“I can’t believe I’m even typing this…

Derek’s fiancée Stina’s cancer has hospitalized her recently due to fluid in the lungs. While in the hospital matters have gotten worse and she has been moved to the ICU. Unfortunately we will have to cancel the Episode 4 tour. However, Derek and I discussed it and agreed that we are going to try and play Australia. It does not seem right in my heart to tour knowing of her condition as Derek has to be with her to help her fight through this. I’m sorry to the fans, Crown The Empire and Tom MacDonald. I will make it up to you somehow.

– Ronnie

A Go-Fund Me for Stina can be found at: gofundme.com/f/help-christina-beat-cancer

Refunds for tickets and VIP upgrades available at point of purchase.”

Crown The Empire also commented:

“We just got word that our tour with Falling In Reverse has been cancelled. Derek (the guitarist for FIR) has a fiancé who is battling with cancer and is currently in the ICU. You can donate to her GoFundMe page now at https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-christina-beat-cancer

Refunds for tickets and VIP upgrades are available now at point of purchase. We hope to see you all again soon. As of right now we don’t know what the rest of 2019 holds. For now, just send all your love to Derek and Falling in Reverse. Thank you.”
