On September 14, 2015, cinemas around the world will debut Eric Clapton: Live at the Royal Albert - Slowhand at 70, which features footage from Clapton's concerts at London's Royal Albert Hall recorded in May of this year. The event was a celebration for Clapton's 70th birthday, 50 years in the music business, and more than 200 performances at the venue. Above, you can watch a live version of "Cocaine" that will be included in the film.
This smoking version of the J.J. Cale tune is highlighted with guitar, organ, and keyboard solos that build the song's intensity. There's beautiful camera shots of the historic venue, band, and crowd -- as they eventually get out of their seats and let loose. "Cocaine" is one of Clapton's most popular tunes, and this live version shows his ability to keep the song sounding fresh.
