There are all sorts of shows scheduled for 2019 (some with Judas Priest opening) in Europe, Austrailia and New Zealand. The canceled California and Vegas shows are all re-scheduled for July 2019 AND today it was announced that the Prince of Darkness will ring in the new 2019 year with an Ozzfest which has a killer lineup including Rob Zombie. Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis and more.
Here is the official press release:

The New Year’s Eve party will include an outdoor stage, along with other holiday festivities, details of which will be announced in the coming weeks. The evening will conclude with OSBOURNEonstage counting down to the new year!
“I asked Sharon what we’re doing this New Year’s Eve and she said ‘WE’RE DOING FUCK ALL!” says OZZY OSBOURNE. So I thought ‘we didn’t do Ozzfest in 2018, so let’s do a New Year’s Eve Ozzfest.'”
“What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than with some of the greatest performers in this genre and our longtime friends Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis and Ice T,” says Sharon Osbourne.
