Eric ClaptonLegendary guitarist Eric Clapton returns to his favourite London venue with a back catalogue of hits than span more than 50 years to celebrate his 70th birthday. Over the last half-century Clapton has established himself as one of the most influential guitarists of all time - and he's the only three-time inductee to the Rock of Roll Hall of Fame. "This is like walking into my front room," old Slowhand Clapton joked ahead of a previous Royal Albert Hall residency in 2011. Supported by his impressive long-time band members, Paul Carrack, Steve Gadd, Nathan East, Chris Stainton, Sharon White and Michelle John, Clapton will focus on a back catalogue from The Yailbirds and Cream as well as his popular solo material, including some of his recent blues and honky-tonk offerings. There's no reason to cry about this journeyman.
