Eric Clapton adds North American dates to 2011 tour


Guitar icon Eric Clapton has announced additional dates on his 2011 tour, including a series of North American west coast shows in the spring.

In support of his latest, self-titled release, "Clapton," the new dates kick off February 25 in Vancouver, and trail down the west coast with two Los Angeles shows in March.

The additional dates add to an already busy 2011 schedule for Clapton that includes a 10-night run at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May.

Clapton has assembled an impressive band for the 2011 tour which will consist of long-time touring partners: Steve Gadd (drums), Willie Weeks (bass), Chris Stainton (keyboards) along with Michelle John and Sharon White as backing vocalists.
