The guitarist has been outspoken about lockdown restrictions and vaccines throughout the pandemic

The guitarist kicked off his latest UK and European tour earlier this month with a pair of shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

However, Clapton has now announced that he is rescheduling his planned dates in Zurich, Switzerland and Milan, Italy, which had been set to take place tonight (May 17) and tomorrow (May 18), after he contracted COVID following the second Albert Hall gig.

“Eric Clapton is unfortunately suffering from COVID having tested positive shortly after the second concert at the Royal Albert Hall,” a statement on Clapton’s website reads. “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.”

Clapton’s website adds that the Zurich and Milan gigs will be rescheduled “within the next six months”, with “the present hope being to be able to resume the tour starting with the concerts in Bologna on May 20 and 21”.
