Leon Russell postpones Clearwater concert again due to health issues



It's never a good sign when a musician has to postpone the same performance twice due to health issues.

But that's what's happening with legendary piano man Leon Russell. The singer was set to perform at Clearwater's Capitol Theatre this summer before a heart attack forced him to postpone the gig until Nov. 17. Now the makeup date has also been postponed "while he recovers from major surgery," the venue said in a release.

Russell will now take the stage at the Cap on Jan. 26, the venue says, health permitting. Tickets to the July/November shows will be honored at the new date. Click here for details.
