Heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath have postponed two shows on what they say will be their final tour after frontman Ozzy Osbourne, 67, fell ill.
Black Sabbath scrapped plans to play Saturday in Edmonton, Alberta and announced that the band would also push back another Canadian show scheduled for Monday in Calgary.
The band said in a statement that it was postponing the shows as Osbourne suffers “extreme sinusitis” and that the concerts would be rescheduled, with dates to be announced later.
The British band, whose influential first album came out in 1970, has vowed that the concerts will be the last and called the tour “The End.”
