Were you there? Send your review to and tell us what it was like!

In his first German concert in four years, Eric Clapton’s show at Cologne’s Lanxess Arena was hot hot hot like the weather!

Roger W. sent Where’s Eric! a quick note after the show, “What an amazing performance! Eric and his band were fantastic. Compliments to the crew since the sound in Cologne is not always very good but yesterday the sound was great. Very good setlist.” Tristan F, echoed his sentiments, “Clapton in Cologne and his band, what can I say? They were on fire. Clapton and his guitar took the centre like they should! The band did a great job supporting and taking the whole thing to the next level.”

Support was Floy and The Messengers.

Tonight, 3 July, Eric is at Hamburg’s Barclaycard Arena. His final summer show happens 8 July in London. In October, Eric heads to New York for his only 2018 concerts in the United States. Limited tickets are still available from Ticketmaster. No other concerts are scheduled.
