Ozzy Osbourne

Cancels Concert --

Don't Worry, I'm Fine

Ozzy Osbourne fans in Germany were fearing the worst when a Black Sabbath concert in Germany was canceled at the last minute earlier today ... but TMZ has learned Ozzy only pulled the plug over "vocal concerns."

Sources at the SAP Arena in Mannheim, Germany tell us ... Ozzy was supposed to take the stage after the band Black Label Society finished their set. But instead of Ozzy, another man grabbed the mic and announced that Osbourne would be unable to perform due to a medical condition.

Fans were freaking out ... but Ozzy's rep tells TMZ ... the rock legend's overall health is OK ... and he merely decided to cancel the show due to issues with his voice.

Concertgoers have been instructed to check the venue's official website to see if Ozzy will reschedule or simply issue a refund.

Ozzy has been half comatose since 1979. His wife must be like a modern day Florence of Nightingale to him. His son's diagnosis probably shocked his system. That explains it. In a couple of weeks he will be back to shuffling around and leaning on microphones.

His voice has been electronically altered for shows for 20+ years now. So many layers are added, it's barely a step better than lip syncing but really about the same. And as far as his wife being Florence Nightengale, ha! She's the golddigger groupie gone mad that has pulled his strings for 30 years now. She really is the devil.

I was there! For 1/2 hour after BLS they were setting up for Ozzy. Curtain goes up and they cancel! All the Germans just began calmly walking out...very strange!

Ozzy pulling the plug on a show because of vocals is like Jenna Haze pulling the plug on a porno because she wants to stay a virgin.

I believe he is ok, just overwhelm by his son illness. I think it hit him kind of hard at that moment. Realization of the seriousness of his son illness. People are making jokes and wisecracks about this man, but he is a dad that loves his children and this is not something I would wish upon any parent. Jack has a long battle ahead of him hope he comes out ok.

I'm sure this has something to do with his son Jack and his diagnosis with multiple schlerosis. It affects the entire family. They are a united family and it only makes sense he be home for Sharon and for his kids. Sharon took the news pretty darn hard on her morning show.

It's too bad he's back on smack after his sons diagnosis. Let's hope he can kick it again if that's what he wants to do.

I hope Ozzy comes over what ever problems he's facing and gets back to rockin on stage. His last two albums were alright a new one would be sweet. Maybe with a Blizzard of Oz feeling to it

I am sure Jack's Diagnosis had something to do with this... They seem like a very close family and I am sure this hit them all very hard. MS is not joke... :(

I hope Sharon is next. Hoping for a disease that renders her mute! She's so vile! Good luck to Jack and Ozzy.
