Fan Reviews:

Review by Douglas Davies
It’s almost EC’s 68th birthday but we got the gift tonight…a phenomenally well integrated band of highly gifted musicians that floored the packed crowd at the Gwinett Arena, just NE of Atlanta. His recent Rolling Stone interview threatens an end of the touring at 70 so do not miss him…age has only made his playing richer and deeper. Everyone giving deeply inspired playing. Eric simply brilliant on the acoustic and the electric stuff, Doyle’s excellent slide playing, the back-up singers just right. Steve standing up and attacking the drums with some of the best playing I’ve ever experienced during the phenomenal encore of Sunshine of Your Love, Paul Carrack treating the crowd with his nightly 3 numbers, Chris Stainton wowing the crowd during a couple of solos plus Greg’s skillful work on several lap steel guitars, dobro and mandolin.

Review by Philip Adams
This was my second time seeing Clapton; I saw him the last time he came to Atlanta in 2010. I’m a huge Clapton fan, and this concert certainly didn’t disappoint! They played a couple of my favorites as well as some I wasn’t familiar with. His band was awesome! I really enjoyed watching and listening to the drummer, especially on the encore. Doyle Bramhall did an outstanding  job. I enjoyed Paul Carrack’s Tempted. The piano player was absolutely amazing! The backup singers did an excellent job as well. Eric was, as usual, wonderful on both his electric and acoustic guitars. The set list was great, although I wish he would play Bell Bottom Blues, one of my absolute favorite Clapton tunes. I was overjoyed that he played Layla, my other favorite, because he didn’t play it last time I saw him. I also enjoyed the Wallflowers’ performance, although I never really listened to them before. Overall, awesome concert!!

Review by Ed G
I’ve been to 9 EC concerts and this one ranks second only to EC/Winwood in Las Vegas a few years ago. Of course EC was awesome, but the entire band is tight. The diversity of musicians and set list provided a wonderful evening. Doyle always seems to bring the best out of EC. The two gave us a fantastic display of guitar talent. Eric’s voice was wonderful, his guitar solos crisp and perfect. The set list was fantastic. Eric took us everywhere from the rock classics, to Robert Johnson’s blues, to refreshed renditions of popular favorites. And they were mixed perfectly to keep the audience very engaged. The arena was sold out and the crowd was very loud and appreciative. I’ve attend EC concerts where he simply plays and never speaks to the audience. This night he was very vocal, thanking the crowd and acknowledging his band members. I enjoyed a fresh rendition of Little Queen of Spades the most. Watching Steve Jordan attack the drums on Sunshine of My Love was worth the price of admission.Don’t miss the tour if possible. Not only is it great, but we won’t get to see EC as much in the future.

Where’s Eric!
