A throat infection means the star attraction can't play the Dublin show..

Ozzy Osbourne pulled the second of two weekend OZZFEST shows last night (May 26) due to illness.

The one-time Prince Of Darkness and current MTV darling cancelled a performance at Punchestown Racecourse near Dublin, blaming a throat infection. He had played the previous night headlining Ozzfest’s show at metal’s spiritual home of Castle Donington. Other names on the Ozzfest bill who played both nights included Tool, System Of A Down, Slayer and Lostprophets.

Meanwhile, ‘The Osbournes’, the fly-on-the-wall reality TV show, finally debuted on MTV in Britain last night after contractual wrangles delayed its’ appearance for a week.
