Ozzy Gets Doctors' OK To Return To Mayhem

Hobbled metal godfather returns to stage November 29.

A stress fracture isn't enough to weaken the constitution of Iron Man Ozzy Osbourne.

Osbourne, who postponed 10 dates of his A Night of Merry Mayhem Tour after suffering the fracture in his leg, has received the go-ahead from his doctors to resume the trek as planned on November 29 in Grand Forks, North Dakota, according to his publicist. Ozzy may have to wear a leg brace onstage.

The metal forefather suffered the injury when he slipped in the shower before the tour's kick-off date, October 31 in Tuscon, Arizona (see "Ozzy Breaks A Leg; 10 Merry Mayhem Dates Postponed"). Though hobbled with the fracture, Osbourne managed to perform a week's worth of dates on the tour, which also features Rob Zombie and Mudvayne, until a doctor ordered him to rest.

The postponed dates began with a November 9 concert in Houston. There's no word yet on when those dates will be rescheduled.
