Ozzy to Undergo Ultrasound Treatment for Back

The barely-living legend of metal, Ozzy Osbourne, was forced to cancel his concert in Oberhausen, Germany tonight due to extreme back pain.
Doctors have told him to take at least 3-4 days rest, during in which that time he will have an ultrasound done on his back to determine the cause of the stress. Osbourne's drummer Tommy Clufetos, spoke on the severity of his frontman's injury.
"I haven't spoken to him yet, but I know he's had some back trouble and I think the doctors have advised him to take a break. He's had back trouble for the last two or three weeks where he's in agonizing pain.
I see it because when he turns around to me I see he's in pain but the second he turns back out to the audience he's Mr. Showman," said Clufetos.
If all goes according to plan and Osbourne recovers, it was recently announced that he will tour with another legend of metal - Rob Halford. That run launches November 12th in Victoria, B.C., Canada and concludes December 12 in Minneapolis.
Osbourne has been on an 18-month world tour in support of his newest album Scream, in stores now.
"He really cares about the audience. The only reason the show would be canceled is that he can physically not make it. He's a trooper," said Clufetos.
