Ozzy Osbourne Postpones Entire European Tour

Following the announcement yesterday that heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne had postponed shows in Dublin, Manchester, Newcastle and Nottingham after coming down with a case of the flu, the singer has delayed his entire European run on doctor's orders. After seeing his physician again, Osbourne has been diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection which the doctor feels could develop into pneumonia given the physicality of the live performances and an extensive travel schedule throughout Europe in harsh winter conditions.

Statement from Ozzy:
“I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to shit.

"First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis. I want to apologize to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It’s being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy."

Gatekeeper Posts New Music Video Online

Canadian true metal force Gatekeeper have debuted a music video for the title track from their new EP "Grey Maiden," set for release on February 22nd via Cruz Del Sur Music. You can check it out below.

Featuring two brand-new compositions, a cover song and a track re-recorded from their first demo, Grey Maiden picks right up where the band's acclaimed East Of Sun first full-length left off. The groundswell of support in North America and abroad - including the selling out of the vinyl and CD pressing of East Of Sun within six months - spurred Gatekeeper to satiate their ever-growing fanbase with a new release.

"We've been working harder and faster than ever since all of this started happening," says guitarist and founding member Geoff Blackwell. "If there's one thing I've learned from spending the past ten-plus years in bands, it's that momentum is your greatest resource and you've gotta pour gasoline on the little fires that pop up in your career."
