Review by Peter DePasquale

On the 11 June 2001, Monday evening at around 8:20 PM, Eric suddenly appeared walking on stage in Boston, MA, at the Fleet Centre, wearing a white button down, short sleeved shirt, blue jeans, and what appeared to be white boots. It was such an eventfully evening, when Eric sat down alone, and played the opening song, " Key to the Highway". After several accoustic songs, one of a great version of " Bell Bottom Blues", and " Change the World", Eric put on his new colourfull strat and began to play " My Father’s Eyes". I must say, that I enjoyed this song before, and when I heard this version from the Reptile Tour, it was breathtaking. I saw the opening Reptile tour in London, in February and Eric did "My Father’s Eyes" and ever since then I cannot stop talking about this version. From then he played all of the favourites, "River of Tears", "Goin’ Down Slow", "She’s Gone", "Travellin’ Light", "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Have you Ever Loved a Woman", "Cocaine", "Wonderful Tonight", "Layla", and the encores which were, "Sunshine of your Love", and a beautiful version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", which was an accoustic version.

I must say for Eric’s last world tour, this was a great show to end it with. Out of all the Eric show’s I have seen, I respect Eric more and more when I hear him play. Well hopefully Eric will still play the Albert Hall, and do a few more records, and I am just praying that he will put out a video or a record of the Reptile Tour. Thank you Eric for all of your great music over the years and god bless you and your new baby girl, as well as your family.

Where’s Eric!
