Black Sabbath have had to cancel a third show, the latest gig in Vancouver, as frontman Ozzy battles severe sinusitis

Black Sabbath have postponed a third show due to Ozzy Osbourne's illness.

The 'Paranoid' hitmakers were due to perform in Vancouver on Wednesday night (03.02.16) but they pulled the gig due to the severity of Ozzy's sinusitis.

The veteran rockers have released a statement on their Facebook page and promised to inform fans when the show will be rescheduled.

They wrote: "Due to continued severe sinusitis, Ozzy Osbourne will be unable to perform with Black Sabbath as scheduled. The Vancouver performance has been postponed. Details regarding the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as it is available. Please hold on to your tickets until further details are available."

The Canadian show is the third gig the heavy metal group have had to cancel, after pulling their Edmonton and Calgary dates at the end of January.

The band are on their final tour, entitled 'The End Tour', which is set to end in Phoenix, USA, on September 21.

The band are also set to headline Download festival in June.

The 'Crazy Train' rockers have put together a final record to be sold as a limited-edition at the concerts.

The LP includes four unheard studio tracks, 'Season Of The Dead', 'Cry All Night', 'Take Me Home' and 'Isolated Man', leftover from their 2013 reunion album '13'.
