After testing positive for Covid shortly after his second concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Eric Clapton has postponed his next two concerts of the ongoing European tour.
The shows affected by the pandemic were performances scheduled to be held in Zurich on May 17 and Milan on May 18.
The iconic English rock and blues guitarist/singer said he hopes to resume the tour starting with the concerts in Bologna on Friday and Saturday.
Clapton said in a statement that he has been told by his medical advisors that if he were to resume travelling and performing too soon, it could substantially delay his full recovery.
“Eric is also anxious to avoid passing on any infection to any of his band, crew, promoters, their staff and of course, the fans,” the statement added.
Clapton expressed hope that he will be sufficiently recovered by the end of the week to be able to perform the remainder of the planned performances.
It has been clarified that the postponed shows will be rescheduled within the next six months and tickets purchased will remain valid for the new rescheduled date.
