Speaking of that...

According to the very trustable insider (i.e. the promoter) information, a booking of Eric’s tour of Japan in March had been in process only to be aborted due to the COVID-related restrictions.

These shows were to include his 100th Budokan show, which would have made Eric the first ever foreign musician who achieves that status — he has played the venue 96 times in total between 1974 and 2019.

Seemingly his imminent one-off performance in Bahrain on March 19 was originally part of the bigger itinerary, penciled in on his way to or from Japan.

If he has guts he plays everywhere. Music is a language that everybody understands, men and women. Maybe he should do it for free or cheap tickets though. In certain countries where Clapton's fans suffer from inflation or are just poor. Cancelling doesn't smoke the evil out. The world just doesn't work that way.

My guess is they will indeed try to move the sold out Helsinki show to Tampere.

Totally agree. The NBTB tour (1994-1995) is a highlight in Calpton's career after the lackluster 80's.

You wish the Stones did the same, getting back to their blues roots. We had to wait until 2016 with Blue and lonesome.

I know the feeling. I try to separate Clapton the musician from Clapton the social commentator, his anti-restriction and vaccine skeptic stances.

Ordinarily, I would love to see Eric at the Ziggo Dome, in Amsterdam.
He's playing less than a week before the Rolling Stones show.

Likewise. I had tickets for the RAH run but just couldn't do it. As it was the disappointment was missing NickMason in Croydon and Steel Pulse in Birmingham. Will do the Stones and others instead.

Would love to see Eric and the Stones work together again. He has that extra spark they don't have any longer. Together they make a great team at this point.

EC Launches 2022 Tour With London Concert

ERIC - ROYAL ALBERT HALL

Eric Clapton launched his 2022 Tour with a concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on 7 May and will be back at the venue for a second performance on 8 May. Both shows are part of the Victorian-era venue's 150th anniversary season. EC has performed at the Hall more than 200 times since his debut on it's stage on 7 December 1964 when he was a part of The Yardbirds.

EC opened the sold-out concert with a cover of Gary Brooker's "Lead Me To The Water" while a photo of the Procol Harum founder was projected behind the stage. Gary, a long-time friend and colleague of EC's, passed away in February. "Lead Me To The Water" was recorded for Gary's 1982 solo album of the same name and featured George Harrison, Phil Collins, Albert Lee, Henry Spinetti and Chris Stainton in addition to EC.

The acoustic set had a special guest, Andy Fairweather Low. Andy first rose to prominence with Amen Corner in the sixties and forged a successful career as a solo artist and in-demand session player. In the early nineties, he joined EC’s band with which he stayed until 2003 touring and recording Eric's ‘Unplugged’, ‘From the Cradle’, ‘Pilgrim’, ‘Riding with the King’, ‘Reptile’, ‘One More Car One More Rider’, ‘Me & Mr. Johnson’ and ‘Back Home’ albums. He still works with EC on the road and in the studio. Andy and his band, The Low Riders, are support for the two Hall dates plus several upcoming European gigs.

In a surprising move and one that completely thrilled those in attendance, "Layla" was performed twice - first unplugged-style in the acoustic set and then again near the show in the second electric set as on the 1970 classic album, "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs."

EC's band for the tour is Nathan East (bass), Sonny Emory (drums), Doyle Bramhall (guitar/vocals), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Paul Carrack (organ / keyboards / vocals), Sharon White (vocals) and Katie Kissoon (vocals).

Okay…seemingly no one on this board attended the show last night. I actually did. I wanted to know how someone else reacted before posting my account. Here is my take.

The first electric set was simply incredible. Clapton and the band started the show with an unfamiliar song to me, what I thought was a possible new song, which surprised me — as well as the audience, perhaps — a lot. As reported on Where’s Eric! website, it turned out to be Lead Me To The Water, a Gary Brooker song and Eric’s tribute to his late friend. After Key To The Highway, we were treated to a couple of deep cuts from the semi-forgotten Pilgrim album and powerful one-two punch of Sheriff and White Room. Fantastic!

Then came the sit down set. Andy Fairweather Low who supported the show rejoining the ensemble, it looked promising. And they started playing — Heart Of A Child, the controversial anti-restriction song. It ruined my day. That was the moment things went downhill for me.

I couldn’t fully enjoy the show thereafter. The second electric set that was full of warhorses and so predictable didn’t help, either, even though there were moments of brilliance here and there in their play. Even the rarely played electric Layla didn’t save the day for me.

I left the venue with extremely mixed feelings.

RAH night#2

I was “immunized” to that anti-restriction song on the first night, prepared for it to come so I could enjoy the show somehow.

On the other hand, performance-wise and in purely musical sense, last night was better. My personal gripe aside, Eric and the band’s play was impeccable on the first night. Tonight he seems to have lost some of the motivation to play, going through the motions from time to time. He cut short the solos of White Room and Layla, which I felt was frustrating as well as anticlimactic. Also the reaction of the crowd was better overall last night.
