Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne has announced that he must, unfortunately, cancel shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.  This follows news of the postponement of the entire UK and European leg of his NO MORE TOURS 2 tour on doctors’ orders.

Ozzy recently developed pneumonia and has spent some time in hospital. Thankfully he is now through the worst parthis doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel,” says Sharon Osbourne.

We are extremely disappointed to have to bring this news to you, our Download family, however it should go without saying, 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 line up and thank them for joining us with such short notice! The scrappy upstarts from Warrnambool – a country town about 3 hours from Melbourne, announced their arrival with 2007’s Runnin’ Wild, one of the most talked-about and best-reviewed debuts in recent hard rock history. Metal Hammer handed them a Golden Gods Award for Best Debut Album and Classic Rock rightly hailed them Best New Band.

Airbourne further marked their territory with the jaw-dropping follow up No Guts. No Glory cracking the Top 40 in the UK, the Top 20 in Australia and Billboard’s Top 200. After unrelenting global touring that included co-headlining the legendary Wacken Festival and performing on the main stage at Download UK, the band released the critically acclaimed Black Dog Barking into the world.

The album reached #5 in Germany, Top 20 across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; and Top 30 in Canada and the U.K. Airbourne bring a sound that UK’s Metal Hammer suggests, “takes seconds to memorise and a lifetime to shake off.” 

Set times will be announced in the next two weeks, keep your eyes peels!
