OZZY OSBOURNE Forced To Cancel GRASPOP METAL MEETING Performance

Legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to cancel Saturday evening’s (June 25) performance at Graspop Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium. According to an official statement posted at Osbourne‘s web site, “Ozzy has severe laryngitis and his doctor has ordered an immediate 72 hours vocal rest before further evaluation.”

Commented Ozzy: “I was so looking forward to performing at the legendary Graspop Metal Meeting. It really pains me to let people down and it is with great disappointment that I am unable to perform for the great fans of Belgium.”

The reissues of OZZY OSBOURNE‘s classic first two solo albums, 1980’s “Blizzard Of Ozz” and 1981’s “Diary Of A Madman”, sold around 6,000 copies each in the United States in their first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. They arrived on May 31 in definitive editions that restore and remaster the original recordings. Both were made available separately or as part of a deluxe box set that features both albums on CD and vinyl, a 100-page coffee table book, a documentary on DVD and a “full-size detailed replica of Ozzy‘s iconic cross.”
