Clapton / Winwood Tour Reaches West Coast

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood have reached the west coast of the United States as their co-headlining tour winds down. The next-to-last performance took place at Oakland’s Oracle Arena on 29 June 2009. Like all of the shows on their tour, it was another no-holds-barred all-around great performance. Steve Winwood once again performed "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" and "There’s A River" as "his" numbers. One fan emailed Where’s Eric! shortly after the show. Their brief comment said, "Clapton / Winwood and band … amazing. Biggest highlights among many for me were Steve’s Low Spark, Voodoo Chile and Cocaine. They started trading solos right from the opening song."

Eric Clapton’s and Steve Winwood’s 14-date U.S. tour wraps tonight (30 June) at the Hollywood Bowl. It opened 10 June at the Izod Center in East Rutheford, New Jersey.
