Eric Clapton announces US tour

Eric Clapton has announced dates for a fall US tour.

The seven-show September series will see the guitarist play Columbus, Detroit, Pittsburgh and two nights each in Chicago and NewYork City.

Clapton’s band for these shows will include Doyle Bramhall II, Paul Carrack, Nathan East, Sonny Emory and Chris Stainton with Sharon White and Katie Kissoon on backing vocals; the shows will feature Jimmie Vaughan as special guest.

Tickets for the Columbus, Detroit and New York events will go on sale to the general public via the usual outlets on Friday, May 20, while seats for Chicago and Pittsburgh will be available on Friday, June 10.

Earlier this month, Clapton played a pair of shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and he will begin a European tour in Bologna, Italy on May 20.

The guitarist will release a live concert film and companion soundtrack, “Nothing But The Blues”, on June 24; the project captures Clapton in performance over two nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco, CA on tour in support of the blues covers album, “From The Cradle.” Eric Clapton
