Has he ever played a club gig in London before or during his RAH residencies? I had the chance to see Ronnie and Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott's in November, but I doubt Clapton will play there again.

Never heard of him doing that. Actually going to see Al Dimeola there on the off night.

I hate going to Clapton concerts, not because of Clapton, he's amazing. But the audience is ALWAYS seating the whole concert except for the last song. Not much different to watching a DVD

I saw him twice - in 2013 in Prague and in 2014 in Vienna and both concerts had GA on the floor, which was great. I will see him again in June in Vienna and it is all-seated this time and yes, I am a little worried about what you write about. On the other hand, I have seen some all-seated concerts in Vienna and during most of them the audience stood up pretty early during the gig, the Austrian audience is usually great.

I haven't been to see EC for a good number of years now, and wouldn't be prompted to change that by his recent set lists.

If on the other hand he was playing 2 hours of Blues...I'd be first in the queue.

Just my tastes I suppose. I don't dislike Eric's own material down the years but, for me, it's his Blues playing that makes him great.

Except that if you are below average height and the folks in front of you are not...then you are pretty stuffed.
Which, if you have paid a lot of dosh for your SEATS, is very irritating.

Ah jeez I don’t want to hear hoochie coochie man again in my lifetime. And that acoustic Layla bores me to tears now. Surely there’s room for Motherless Children in there somewhere

Again. But—

I was there tonight. It was much better to be there to experience it in person than on the setlist. Eric was in fine form. A good, solid show.

Thanks for the information, RisingStone. Looking forward to the RAH dates. Granted, but it would be nice of him to change some songs when he plays different shows in the same city, as a courtesy to so many of us that try to go to all of them. He should bring Chuck back, I bet he would introduce some nice changes from one night to the next. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

I saw night three at Budokan. Eric was terrific. Looking forward to the Guitar Festival in Dallas. I am sure most you you know Ronnie and Keith have appeared at CGF in the past. Just waiting for the Stones schedule to get re-released. I am sitting on tickets to both Chicago shows, Glendale, Miami and Denver. Hopefully most of them will still work for me. If not I will have to sell some.

Yeah, I'm sitting on the last three of those shows, + 2nd Chicago only. I'd love to go to the Guitar Fest, but...missed the first sale of tix. (If anyone has an extra, write me.) If not, I'm counting on your report. Went to one back in Chicago with a local RS fan...very much enjoyed it.

I am doing SF, Ben Harper in Santa Barbara then Vegas. No extras for Crossroads but hooked a friend up to record both nights. I also have 3 at Royal Albert Hall. Just hoping the Stones don't triple book me.

This is OT, but I am reading Slowhand by Philip Norman and, after describing Clapton's drunken rant in Birmingham in 1976, he writes that there are no audio recordings of it. That is simply not true, I heard it many times some years ago, but mysteriously it seems to have disappeared from the Internet. Is it to be found somewhere?

I broke down and bought tix for the SF show. I'm hoping he changes that Budokan set list for the US shows.....EC has to throw down at the Crossroads festival and that set list ain't it LOL!

If it exists I either have it or can get it. Need to time look through a few dozen drives so not the highest priority.

Isn't that drunken rant in the recent documentary film?

He will play three dates at the Royal Albert Hall from today (13, 15 and 16th).
Would like to hear from anyone who attends these shows, set-lists, reports, reviews, anecdotes etc. Thanks (in advance).

Re: OT: Eric Clapton stuff

Going to al three shows, rolling down from Oxford right now. I will do that, RisingStone.

I’m in Britain now. If the show turns out significantly different from the Japanese shows, I’ll consider queuing for a ticket on the door on the final night.

yep , when he gets heckled from someone in the crowd and he drunkinly challenges the individual . Wow , I did not know EC was a tough guy ?

Re: OT: Eric Clapton stuff

[youtu.be]

Over 7 minutes, but by the time he is leaning back into the music, and the audience gets to their feet applauding, her has reached up pretty high.
A beautiful performance; great song; great lead vocal by him too. I love this solo by him. The 'big' solo starts around 5:15

I think it refers to this outburst:

Eric Clapton ‘disgusted’ by past racist outburst

"Eric Clapton has confessed he is still “disgusted” at himself for shouting racist and fascist slogans on stage at a 1976 concert".

Birmingham, 1976

After last night you better get there early. I'll let you look up the setlist. All I can say was best Clapton gig since the tour with Winwood.
