Eric Clapton ANNOUNCES DATES OF 2011 TOURING

Eric Clapton

RELEASES 19th SOLO ALBUM THIS FALL ENTITLED CLAPTON

Directly on the heels of Eric Clapton’s recent announcement of a new album being released this year, the artist has announced an initial set of dates for his 2011 tour that will encompass Ireland and the U.K. including four nights at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall.  Additional touring dates in Europe, Asia and the U.S. will be announced shortly.

Critics are already raving about the latest Clapton album as a new and inspiring body of work by one of the world’s most legendary guitar players. Co-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, the album features an all star cast of musical collaborations starting with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmond—and the sessions later added guests including Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks.  Clapton created a collection that touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals. The result is both relaxed and revelatory, and unlike anything the guitarist has done in his legendary career.

Clapton has assembled an impressive band for the 2011 tour which will consist of long-time touring partners:  Steve Gadd (drums), Willie Weeks (bass), Chris Stainton (keyboards) along with Michelle John and Sharon White as backing vocalists.
