Eric Clapton has postponed two concerts scheduled for this weekend at the Forum in Inglewood. Citing “severe bronchitis", EC will reschedule the concerts for the fall.
The 71-year old guitarist hasn't toured much in recent years, limiting solo gigs to major cities since his last major American tour in 2014. He’s performed only twice this year, and that was the back-to-back shows at Madison Square Garden in New York earlier this week.
On Friday, Clapton's publicist announced the postponed concerts in a press release.
“Due to severe bronchitis and under doctor’s advisement, Eric Clapton is rescheduling this weekend’s two shows at the Forum in Los Angeles,” it read, in part. “He is very sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to these shows.”
Clapton was already scheduled to do concerts at the Forum on Sept. 15 and 16, so he is rescheduling this weekend’s shows around those gigs. The Saturday, March 25th, show will now be honored for the a September 13th date. And, the March 26, concert will now occur on Monday, September 18th.
