Eric Clapton’s 11-date U.S. Tour came to an end on 13 March at the Amway Arena in Orlando, Florida. The tour started on 25 February, immediately after a 6-show 4-city jaunt with co-headliner Jeff Beck. The Orlando set list was identical to that performed two-days previous in Sunrise, Florida. A fan in attendance told Where’s Eric!, "I always take as my guest a friend of mine who has never seen EC before. When they arrive they are usually just a casual fan who would never think of going if I hadn’t invited. But as was the case in the last 5 concerts, I watched a transformation inside my buddy which starts with him or her staring, mouth open at Eric’s playing a solo. Then at the end of the solo, my pal simply shakes their head and say "WOW". And they always walk away a life long convert! It’s funny but it’s always ‘Old Love’ that does it for them. Tonight was no exception, ‘Old Love’ was outstanding, as was ‘Sherrif’."
Eric now goes on a two-month hiatus before heading out on the road in Europe with Steve Winwood in mid-May. He will then return to the U.S. for a very special one-off event on 26 June, the 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival at Toyota Park, Chicago.
