Clapton: Rave Up At The Albert Hall

Eric Clapton’s fifth show at London’s Royal Albert Hall had a very different pace and feel from the Saturday concert. Eric not only modified the set list, but modified the arrangements of several numbers as well. During the sit-down set, fan consensus seems to be that Still Got The Blues and Same Old Blues are nightly standouts and that Driftin’ should be retired for a bit in favor of another song (Ramblin’ was the most frequently mentioned). One fan commented that it would be great if EC plugged back in for Layla but perform it in the unplugged-style. Another said it would be interesting to hear Wonderful Tonight in this portion of the concert.

EC’s final solo concert of his 2011 residency takes place 24 May. Starting 26 May, he will be joined by Steve Winwood for five nights. Andy Fairweather Low and The Low Riders open at all performances.

Full length fan reviews will be posted in the 2011 Tour Archive as they arrive.
