It's a very black day indeed for Ozzy Osbourne fans around the world.

The metal icon on Thursday announced he was postponing all 2019 tour dates as he recovers from an injury sustained during a recent bout with pneumonia. That includes a concert on June 2 at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa.

He has pushed his entire tour a year into the future, including the Tampa date, which will now take place on May 31, 2020. Tickets for the 2019 show will be honored in 2020.

"I can't believe I have to reschedule more tour dates," Osbourne said in a statement. "Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now. I'm grateful for the love and support I'm getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it's really what's keeping me going. Just know that I am getting better every day...I will fully recover...I will finish my tour...I will be back!"
