Eric Clapton shares 1991 Royal Albert Hall performance of Key To The Highway

Eric Clapton is sharing video of an unreleased 1991 Royal Albert Hall performance of "Key To The Highway" as the latest preview to the June 23 release of "The Definitive 24 Nights" limited-edition boxed set.

Clapton was joined on stage by Buddy Guy, Albert Collins and Robert Cray to play iconic blues tracks during a series of shows at the famed London venue that were originally issued as “24 Nights” in October 1991. The double live album and home video delivered great performances but only covered a fraction of what was filmed and recorded – until now.

Warner Records is releasing the limited-edition box set, “The Definitive 24 Nights”; the package includes nearly six hours of live music, and 35 unreleased performances. The collection distills Clapton's 1990-91 Albert Hall residencies using the best performances from the rock, blues, and orchestral nights to create full concerts for each genre.

Clapton was joined a number of guests during the performances, including Johnnie Johnson, Jimmie Vaughan, Chuck Leavell, Phil Collins, Nathan East, Greg Phillinganes, Steve Ferrone, Ray Cooper, and Jerry Portnoy.

The box set will be available in 6-CD/3-Blu-Ray and 8-LP/3-Blu-Ray configurations, with both editions including a hardbound book, and an individually numbered lithograph featuring a photograph of Clapton by Carl Studna; the rock, blues, and orchestral concerts from the boxed set will also be released individually as 2-CD/DVD and vinyl sets.

You can review the 2023 package and pre-order your copy of “The Definitive 24 Nights” here.
