> Additional Two Nights at Madison Square Garden September 7 & 8
> Additonal Two Nights at The Forum September 15 & 16
> Gary Clark, Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan as Special Guests

Shows added due to huge ticket demand for March Concerts. Celebrating A 50 Year Career, Music Icon Eric Clapton Announces 2017 North American Shows Presented By Chase

Adding to the previously announced sold out four shows in March, Eric Clapton announced today – January 30 –  an additional and final four shows for 2017. Eric will perform September 7th and 8th at New York’s Madison Square Garden and September 15th and 16th at Los Angeles’ Forum. The shows will be a celebration of 50 years in music and just as many years performing at these two legendary venues.

Legendary guitar players Gary Clark, Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan will be special guests at the shows.

When he celebrated his 70th Birthday in 2015, EC wrote a heartfelt note in the program that began “I swear this is it, no more…..I know I’ve been threatening retirement for the last fifty years, but I didn’t think I’d ever really want to stop. I love what I do and always have done, but over the last few decades I’ve found what I was always really looking for, a loving family who love me just the way I am, which means I can relax and rest when I need to, and more and more I treasure the beauty of that….”  The letter went on to say, “Hopefully, I might be able to remember and breathe some life into this old stuff…. in truth believe me, with these great guys to play with, I’ll be having the time of my life!”

This celebration of Eric Clapton’s iconic career is the latest initiative in a series of exclusive partnerships between Chase and EC that originated when Chase became the presenting sponsor in support of the 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival. More recently, Chase offered its customers an exclusive free iTunes download of the legendary musician’s newest album, “I Still Do”.

The Band:
For all 2017 North American Concerts, Eric will be accompanied by his band members Walt Richmond, Steve Gadd, Nathan East, Chris Stainton, Sharon White and Michelle John.
