'Severe back pain' forces the 'Tears in Heaven' singer to cancel his Vienna and Stuttgart concerts.

Eric Clapton has canceled two concerts on his European tour due to severe back pain. "The concerts scheduled for Vienna [11 June] and Stuttgart [12 June] have been canceled. Mr. Clapton has injured his back," reads an announcement posted on Clapton's website on June 11. "All other shows will continue as scheduled. Further news on the rescheduling of these two concerts will be made at a later date. "

Another announcement adds that the 68-year-old musician "is currently with specialists who will be able to better determine the course of treatment." The statement continues, "He was looking forward to these concerts and regrets that he is not to be able to perform for the fans. He would like to apologize for any inconveniences these cancellations may cause and would like to thank the fans for their understanding. All tickets can be returned to the Box Offices for refund."

Clapton is next scheduled to perform in Oberhausen, Germany, on Friday, June 14. He will then do two more gigs in Germany on June 15 and 18 before wrapping up his European tour in Prague, Czech Republic, on Wednesday, June 19.

The "Tears in Heaven Single" is close to ending the world tour to support his latest release, "Old Sock", where he covers some of his favorite songs. The album features contribution from Paul McCartney, J.J. Cale and Steve Winwood.
