It was a black Friday for Black Sabbath fans: supernaturally durable rocker Ozzy Osbourne has orders not to sing, wiping out dates in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh -- and yes, Buffalo.
Monday's concert at Marine Midland Arena has been canceled and will be rescheduled, Osbourne's publicist said Friday. Polyps on his vocal cords are acting up, so "he's been instructed to lie low" and give his voice a rest, said Ana Adame.
Promoters will have the new date in a day or so, said arena show booker Jennifer Stich. If people wait, they can find out soon whether they need to return their tickets. The concert, with tickets from $55 to $25, was nearly sold out.
