Clapton In Boston: Night One

After three successful concerts in New York City last week, Eric Clapton and his band moved north to Boston, Massachusetts. At the Bank North Garden, Clapton presented 17 songs in the 2 hour concert on 3 October 2006. In addition to traditional blues like "Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out" and "Further On Up The Road," the show featured numbers from Eric’s extensive back catalog including "Motherless Children" from "461 Ocean Boulevard" (1974), "Pretending" from 1989’s "Journeyman" and "After Midnight" from his self-titled 1970 debut. The band performs at the venue again on 4 October. The Robert Cray Band opens.

Some quick comments from fans in attendance:

EC was on fire tonight and he was having a blast on stage. It was clear that he is having so much fun this tour. Tonight was an "on night" for both Clapton and Derek Trucks. – Andrew Percy

I would have like to see longer more sophisticated solos by EC, but I felt he really tried to sing and make an impression. Doyle Bramhall and Derek Trucks are phenomenal! – Justin Stygles
