13 May 11
On 12 May, Eric Clapton and His Band performed a 17-song set at Glasgow’s SECC, following an opening set by Andy Fairweather Low and The Low Riders. One long-time fan told Where’s Eric, "Eric’s playing was sublime, helped by excellent sound quality. I deliberately hadn’t looked at any previous set lists, so the inclusion of Gary Moore’s Still Got The Blues was a pleasant surprise. Eric also paid an almost un-noticeable tribute to Cornell Dupree, the jazz guitarist who died a few days ago, by mentioning his name midway through on of the solos during the acoustic set (I think it was on Same Old Blues). Having seen EC many times, it’s always interesting to see how he re-invents some songs, often with a few simple, subtle changes. Wonderful Tonight is a good example with Eric gently strumming the guitar in parts of the song."
Eric’s band features Chris Stainton (keyboards), Tim Carmon (keyboards), Willie Weeks (bass), Steve Gadd (drums), Michelle John (backing vocals) and Sharon White (backing vocals).
Next up on the tour schedule are two concerts in Cardiff on Saturday and Sunday. Then, on 17 May, EC kicks off an 11-night residency at London’s Royal Albert Hall which will include 5 nights with Steve Winwood.
