The members of Black Sabbath were forced to back out of a second Ozzfest show in a week, due to Ozzy Osbourne's illness.

When fans arrived for the Noblesville, Indiana, Ozzfest stop on Sunday (31JUL05), they were told the rockers would not be performing that evening, but that Iron Maiden would be playing an extended set, reports MTV News.

On Wednesday (27JUL05), Black Sabbath cancelled an appearance in Holmdel, New Jersey, with Iron Maiden filling in at the last minute for them.
