Statement from Eric Clapton website:
“Due to severe bronchitis and under doctor’s advisement, Eric Clapton is rescheduling this weekend’s two shows at The Forum in Los Angeles. 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, Clapton will play the already scheduled two shows at The Forum September 15th and 16th.”

This puts a slightly different spin on the show I saw last week at MSG, which I enjoyed though I found it a bit perfunctory. For more details, see my review in Guitar World. I hope all is well with EC. Bronchitis has been  the publicly stated diagnosis for several of Gregg Allman’s cancellations.
