Clapton Sidelined By “Severe Bronchitis”

Due to a case of "severe bronchitis," Eric Clapton fans in Los Angeles will have to wait a little longer to see the guitar legend.

Clapton postponed the two weekend shows, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday (March 25-26) at the Forum, to September 13 and September 18, respectively; Clapton has two other Forum shows already scheduled for September 15-16.

A statement on Clapton's Twitter feed said the shows were postponed "under doctor's advisement" and that Clapton "is very sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to these shows."
