Eric Clapton postpones European tour

Eric Clapton has postponed his 2021 European tour dates “due to ongoing COVID restrictions to mass gatherings in Europe.”

The guitarist announced new 2022 shows for the month-long run, which will now open in Zurich, Switzerland on May 17 and wrap up with two nights in Moscow in late June.

“Eric is anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get back out on the road and perform,” reads a message from Clapton’s team.

Fans should retain their tickets as they will be honored on the new rescheduled dates next year; information on changes to Eric’s four UK shows at the Royal Albert Hall this May will be announced soon.

Last fall, Clapton released a highlights package from the 2019 edition of his Crossroads Guitar Festival; the set delivers nearly four hours of live music from the two-day event at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX, which saw Clapton top a lineup of artists while raising funds for the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, the chemical dependency treatment and education facility that he founded in 1998.
