Eric Clapton returning to the road in September for an eight-city run of North American shows.
It kicks off on September 13th at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas and wraps up on September 26th at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida.
According to a press release these will be Clapton’s only North American dates for the year with tickets going on sale this Friday 18th June.
Eric’s band will include guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, organist Paul Carrack, bassist Nathan East, drummers Sonny Emory and Steve Gadd, keyboardist Chris Stainton and backup singers Sharon White and Katie Kissoon.
Jimmie Vaughan, elder brother of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan and former leader of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, will serve as the opening act.
Clapton has not performed in public since the start of the pandemic. But he did stir up quite a bit of controversy by collaborating with Van Morrison on his anti-lockdown song Stand and Deliver. “Do you want to be a free man,” he sang on the song. “Or do you want to be a slave?”
