Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has been hospitalized after suffering unspecified heart problems, forcing him to cancel an upcoming U.S. tour with his new group Day Of Errors. Ward has reported that he is "OK and in good recovery at this time," but the seven December west coast dates he had planned with his new group have nevertheless been called off.
Ward explained the situation in a Facebook post, writing, "I wound up in hospital this past weekend with heart problems. I am OK and in good recovery at this time. However, I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before, and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates. I want to send my sincere apologies to everyone who was planning to come out to the shows."
