Clapton in Japan: Nagoya

Eric Clapton and His Band performed at the Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium in Nagoya, Japan on Tuesday, February 25. One fan – who’s been at all the shows so far – told Where’s Eric!, “‘Pretending – with two wah-wah solos – was fantastic and there was also a wah-wah solo in ‘Cocaine.’ ‘Sheriff’ was brilliant. Other highlights were ‘How Long,’ ‘Crossroads’ and ‘Little Queen of Spades.'”

There are only two shows left on Eric’s Japan Itinerary. Tomorrow, February 26, he and the band will be in Osaka. Then, they’ll travel back to Tokyo for their fourth and final show at the Nippon Budokan on February 28. From there, it’s off to Thailand, Singapore, Dubai and Bahrain, where this leg of the tour will wrap on March 8. Tickets for the Bahrain gig at Fort Arad went on sale this past weekend and sold out in 30 minutes. A complete list of 2014 tour dates can be found here
