Review by Tom / Milford CT
I just got back from the show at Mohegan Sun and I have to say that this is the best I have been to. Last week I saw EC in NYC at MSG for two nites (Thurs and Fri) but tonite the show was on fire from the start. Eric seemed to be on his A game and in very good spirits. Pretending was right on and Eric displayed some different solos all nite, My highlight was Got to Get Better In A Little While and a surprise with Anyday!!! Doyle did a great accompaniment on Anyday with Eric. As usual Derek Truck was right there with his slide mastery. I thought the three guitars really blended well. Just when I thought the band was going to play Let It Rain like it did in Boston , you could see Eric turn to the band and say something which resulted in them playing Further on Up the Road which was no disappointment at all. I have seen EC since Yale Bowl 1974 thru the 80’s, 90’s the Crossroads Festival and tonite was right up there. I think that nothing could replicate the show at The Crossroads but tonite sure came close. I left with a big smile on my face.

Review by Steve Polezonis – Cromwell, CT
Super Show! For me, the highlight was "Anyday"…that and "I Am Yours" are probably two of my favorites…there was not a dull moment from the opening of Robert Cray’s set (who I think is a monster talent)…"Phone Booth" and "Bad Influence" (which Eric covered on "August") as well as "20" were highlights. Eric was loose and obviously having a good time, his band locked in to every move. Derek and Doyle are perfect for Eric…they keep him on his toes and you can see Eric enjoys their playing, as well as Robert’s, immensely. Excellent rhythm section and Chris Stainton is another phenom…definitely underrated. Eric was probably at his best, solo wise, on "Little Queen of Spades"…vocals and guitar on fire. I hope Eric doesn’t wait another 12 years to come to Connecticut.

Review by Brandon Murray
I have seen Mr. Clapton on three seperate occasions and each time has been a different yet exciting experience. From his solo tour in 2004 to Cream in 2005 to yet another solo tour in 2006, Eric appears to be at his finest at the present date. His setlist at Mohegan Sun captured the emotion and the roller coaster of his entire career and it was an awesome experience. It was a second coming of Derek & the Dominos as yet another Allman Brothers member allowed Clapton to expand his setlist, his power and gave him the motivation to make this the best I’ve seen Mr. Clapton ever play. The emotion in the acoustic set along with the freshness to the Dominos numbers allowed Clapton to touch on every stage of his solo career and express it with a new perspective, viewpoint and motivation. I strongly hope that they will capture THIS concert on CD and allow me to cherish the memories over and over again because it was shock and awe the entire evening. He is a superb performer, musician ! and man that has led an extrordinary life. As a 19-year-old fan of wonderful music, Mr. Clapton has shaped my life, my viewpoint and my world and I can do nothing but thank him over and over again. I wish he could understand the power his music has had over my life and I wish there were words to express how much his life has meant to mine. From "Anyday" to "I Am Yours" to "Pretending" and "Further On Up The Road", Mr. Clapton is a master of his trade and remains a man that must be seen by anyone who wishes to see the guitar and to hear the guitar at a level of volume that brings the emotion and the intensity of the notes into your mind and across the inside of your eyes to show you the true meaning of the music. Thank You, Mr. Clapton.

Review by Maria
I have admired Eric Clapton’s work for years. The 1st time I saw him was at Yale’s Woolsey Hall in New Haven, Ct when he was with Cream. I saved my ticket from that show. It was $3.50… Ticket prices have increased over the years but the thrill of seeing him & hearing him play have increased for me too. He was BLAZIN’ last night. When he played Old Love, the tears rolled for me. It was awesome. I have nothing but kudos for Eric, his band & of course Robert Cray. I saw Robert Cray open for Eric in 1987 at the Providence Civic Center in Providence,Rhode Island. It was a joy to see him open for him again…God Bless Eric Clapton

Where’s Eric!
