Osbourne was scheduled to perform at Shorline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California Saturday night. However, he became sick before he was supposed to take the stage and rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. Doctors diagnosed him with an infection and needed hand surgery.
"Ozzy Osbourne’s Saturday, Oct. 6 show at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, is being postponed due to illness," the "Crazy Train" singer's representative said in a statement. "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter is being treated for an infection, which required surgery on his hand this morning (Saturday, October 6). Osbourne will spend a couple of days at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles where he’ll remain under doctor’s care as they monitor the infection."
Osbourne's team also shared a photo of the former Black Sabbath lead singer's hand bandaged. A few hours later, he confirmed he was feeling better with a funny photo of himself eating ice cream in his hospital bed. "Feeling better after surgery. Ice cream helps," he wrote.
His daughter, Kelly Osbourne, also shared the photo of her father eating ice cream to assure her fans he is doing better.
"Thank you all so much for your well wishes," Kelly wrote on Instagram. "Dad is doing so much better. Nothing that some rest, antibiotics and of course his favorite ice cream can’t cure."
Son Jack Osbourne and wife Sharon Osbourne have not commented on Osbourne's health. However, thousands of his loyal fans have, with many of them hoping to see Osbourne back on the stage soon.
