Fan Reviews:

Review by Tsuzuki Hiroyuki
On the third night Eric’s guitar was most clearly sounded. I could distinguish his slight chord from the rest of other instruments. The band ensemble is getting better every night.

Two silver screens are placed just above both sides of the stage.  I sometimes look up and notice that Eric’s hair grows white. I can’t help thinking that he gets into the later years of career. In fact, he writes in this tour’s program, “I am not getting any younger.“ Though getting older is inevitable, his performance  remains the same, no different from that of younger days.

Review by Dave “Bluescrazy” Langley
Third night at Budokan Hall and my final night of this tour. Set list and running order the same as previous night. Highlights for mewere Pretending and pretty much everything once the sit down set was over.Please can we have electric Layla back?

Where’s Eric!
