Clapton’s diagnosis was confirmed Monday on his official Facebook page. He reportedly had a positive result after performing at London’s Royal Albert Hall earlier this month, and he had to cancel performances in Zurich and Milan.

“He was told by his medical advisers that if he resumed travel and performances too quickly, it could significantly delay his full recovery,” the statement said. “Eric also tries not to infect any of his band, team, promoters, their employees and, of course, fans.”

A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has expressed skepticism about vaccine mandates, blockades and other measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19. In 2020, Clapton performed a song written by Van Morrison called “Stand and Deliver”, which contained lyrics that critically expressed the closure in the UK. Last year, Clapton called the side effects of his second Covid-19 vaccine “catastrophic” and said vaccine safety had been overstated due to “propaganda,” Rolling Stone reported.
Vaccines approved for use in the United States have been rigorously tested and recognized as safe and effective by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the National Institutes of Health. Clapton said he adopted the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is not approved for use in the United States but has been approved by the World Health Organization for use in other countries, including the United Kingdom. Some people experience side effects after being vaccinated against Covid-19.

A post on Clapton’s Facebook page said it was “very unpleasant” that Clapton received a positive result after “avoiding Covid throughout the blockade and throughout the period when travel restrictions were in place.”

Clapton will move the missed tour dates to the next six months, the Facebook post said.
