D'Angelo Cancels More Shows; Doctors Order Rest

Soulful crooner D'Angelo has been ordered by doctors to postpone scheduled performances this week in Washington D.C., Boston, Cleveland, and Toronto in order to receive medical treatment for a lingering case of bronchitis.

D'Angelo was first diagnosed with a severe throat infection two weeks ago while he was in the middle of a multi-night stand at Radio City Music Hall in New York City (see "D'Angelo's Throat Woes Postpone Shows").

The singer quickly rebounded, making up the Radio City show a few days after it was originally canceled, and D'Angelo modified part of his East Coast tour leg (see "D'Angelo Juggles Washington, Boston Tour Stops") in hopes that he would be able to fend off illness long enough to continue the outing.

But doctors apparently re-evaluated D'Angelo over the weekend and instructed him to nix concerts in Washington D.C. on March 24 and 25,

the previously postponed Boston date on March 26, as well as shows in Cleveland on March 27 and Toronto on March 29. All of the dates will be rescheduled.

After the rest, D'Angelo is expected to resume his "Voodoo" tour on March 31 and April 1 in Chicago.
