“Thankfully he is now through the worst part. His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel.”
Due to headline the Download festival in Australia, it’s organizers issued the following statement: “Ozzy’s health and wellbeing is number one. We wish Ozzy all the best in his recovery and hope he is back to full health as soon as possible.
“It is impossible to replace Ozzy Osbourne at any time, but three weeks out from Download there is no chance of us securing an act to replace the headline slot.
“We are pleased to announce Aussie hard rock kings, Airbourne will join the Download lineup and thank them for joining us with such short notice.”
