NEW YORK (AP) — Cher has rescheduled tour stops in New York and New Hampshire due to illness.

A Monday news release says the singer has been diagnosed with an acute viral infection and has rescheduled opening stops on the second leg of her Dressed to Kill Tour this week in Albany, New York, and Manchester, New Hampshire.

Doctors diagnosed Cher with the infection over the weekend in Los Angeles and have ordered bed rest for several days. The release offered no further details about the 68-year-old singer’s illness.

The Albany show now is scheduled for Oct. 6 and the Manchester stop will take place Oct. 7. The tour leg kicks off Sept. 15 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
