"Cher was diagnosed over the weekend with what doctors termed an 'acute viral infection' and has been required to be on full bed rest for several days," the Times Union Center website reads.

The star was scheduled to perform at the venue Thursday in Albany, N.Y., and at the Verizon Wireless Arena Saturday in Manchester, N.H. The shows have been rescheduled for October 6 and 7, respectively. The singer is expected to perform as scheduled in Allentown, Pa., on Monday.

Cher released her 25th studio album, Closer to the Truth, in September 2013. The record debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and includes the singles "Womans World," "I Hope You Find It" and "Take It Like a Man." The singer embarked on her Dressed to Kill tour in March, and finished the first leg in July. The second leg will come to a close November 19 in Charleston.
