Eric Clapton Adds Four New U.S. Shows

by VVN Music

Normally, we wouldn't write a story on the announcement of just four shows but, when it's Eric Clapton, he's threatening to end his touring days and it doubles his itinerary for the year, then it is just too newsworthy.

Clapton had already scheduled four shows, two in New York and two in Los Angeles for March. Now he is playing the same number in each city in September.

As with the March dates, Clapton's guests will be Gary Clark, Jr. and Jimmy Vaughan.

Now, with the addition of the September dates, we have to wonder if this really is "it". Back in November, Eric said of the original dates:

I swear this is it, no more…..I know I’ve been threatening retirement for the last fifty years, but I didn’t think I’d ever really want to stop. I love what I do and always have done, but over the last few decades I’ve found what I was always really looking for, a loving family who love me just the way I am, which means I can relax and rest when I need to, and more and more I treasure the beauty of that…. Hopefully, I might be able to remember and breathe some life into this old stuff…. in truth believe me, with these great guys to play with, I’ll be having the time of my life!
