Previously, Clapton announced September concerts in Pennsylvania, Ontario, Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado. The opening act for these new dates will be Jimmie Vaughan. Eric is currently on tour in Japan and next month will participate in a two-night tribute concert for Jeff Beck at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The Clapton band lineup features guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, multi-instrumentalist Paul Carrack, bassist Nathan East, drummers Sonny Emory and Steve Gadd, keyboardist Chris Stainton, and vocalists Sharon White and Katie Kissoon.
