Eric Clapton Announces North American Tour Dates
Eric Clapton has announced a 17-date U.S. tour. The trek kicks off on March 14th in Phoenix, Arizona and wraps over two nights at New York City's Madison Square Garden during Clapton's fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival. Vintage Vinyl News reported that the concerts, which benefit Clapton's Crossroads Rehab Center in Antigua, will reportedly include performances by the Allman Brothers Band, Booker T. Jones, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Jimmie Vaughan, John Mayer, Jonny Lang, Keb' Mo', Keith Urban, Los Lobos, Robbie Robertson, Robert Cray, and Taj Mahal, among many others.
 
Over the years, Eric Clapton has released more live albums than most of his contemporaries, and has always put more thought into his setlists than most other '60s and '70s acts. It comes as no surprise that he's actually cool with the occasional bootlegged gig leaking out to fans: "In the past, as a kid, you were always going to clubs and recording people -- not to sell, but that's bootlegging in its way. So therefore, my attitude actually has often been, if I've seen someone in the audience with a mic, and it's a good performance, I kinda think, 'Well, I'm glad someone's got this on tape, because it's a really good night,' y'know? And at least someone's gonna be able to share that."
