Short, 76, was to have performed at the California Club on Thursday and at Cerritos Center on Friday. (Thursday’s missed show was the first of his career!)

Now under the care of Dr. William Young, Short is due to undergo tests for five days, and he said he’s confident that he will be OK to start his 35th consecutive year at the Hotel Carlyle on May 6.
