November 12, 2001 12:00 AM ET

As a result of a stress fracture to his leg, Ozzy Osbourne will miss stops on his Merry Mayhem tour through at least November 24th.

Osbourne broke the leg when he fell in the shower before his Halloween show in Tucson, but he did not know the extent of the injury and went ahead with that performance and four others before continuing pain forced him to seek medical attention.

Osbourne flew back to Los Angeles over the weekend to consult with his personal physician and to determine when he can resume the tour, which is scheduled to run through New Years' Eve in Phoenix.

The ten postponed dates have not yet been rescheduled. They are as follows:

11/9: Houston, Compaq Center
11/10: Bossier City, LA, CenturyTel Arena
11/12: Knoxville, TN, Thompson Boling Arena
11/14: Nashville, Gaylord Entertainment Center
11/15: Cleveland, Gund Arena
11/17: Cincinnati, Firstar Center
11/19: Birmingham, AL, BJCC
11/21: West Palm Beach, FL, Mars Music Amphitheater
11/23: Greensboro, NC, Greensboro Coliseum
11/24: Atlanta, Philips Arena

“Party Rock Anthem”

LMFAO | 2011

This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
