Eric Clapton postpones Los Angeles concerts due to illness

Eric Clapton has postponed a pair of concerts in Los Angeles, CA after taking ill this past week.

“Due to severe bronchitis and under doctor’s advisement, Eric Clapton is rescheduling this weekend’s two shows at The Forum in Los Angeles,” read the official statement by the guitarist’s representatives. “The Saturday March 25th show will now be held Wednesday, September 13th. The Sunday March 26th show will now be held Monday September 18th.

“He is very sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to these shows.

“Ticketholders can retain their tickets for the new dates or refunds will be issued at point of purchase. In addition, Eric will play the already scheduled two shows at The Forum September 15th and 16th.”

News of the Los Angeles date changes follows Clapton’s launch of his 2017 concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York on March 19 and 20.

The guitarist is playing a limited, eight-date US run this year alongside three nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May.

Clapton’s latest release is “Live In San Diego with Special Guest JJ Cale”, which captures the guitarist in a 2007 concert as part of a tour in support of his and Cale’s 2006 album, “The Road To Escondido.”
