Eric Clapton RAH 2015 - Wheres Eric FINAL_0

I would rather say this time …

Royal Eric Hall 2015!

Could be, if you were not lucky enough to be at one of Eric’s special 70th Birthday Concerts in London, nor in Canada, neither in NewYork… then here in Hungary, the Hungarians and foreigners who obtained in time their tickets were able to head on Saturday, October, 10. 2015., to the Corvin Cinema – Budapest, where the film recorded in May was screened in front the full house, sold-out crowd. The two hours concert of the legendary guitarist was filmed, recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall – London, where Eric already held over 200 concert over 50 years. Within these years he received 18 Grammy awards. Those who were not born yesterday pretty much well know Eric’s music world and know exactly his first group, the Cream.  In the 70s, trio’s music was a sensation expressing new emotions. The three of them: Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker. drummer, Jake Bruce (R.I.P.) – bassist surely left a milestone in the 70s music world.Wayback he also played as a solo artist, with the Yardbirds. Before the concert film started the members of the band, in brief wrapped up Eric’s decades on stage with different groups and bands.

Even though Eric Clapton previously gave concert in Budapest yet you just cannot get enough of one of the most gifted talent guitarman with his awesome emotional songs.

The two-hour concert film included some of his biggest hits on stage with ERIC CLAPTON’S BAND.  The Lineup was awesome: Chris Stainton – piano, keyboards, Paul Carrack – organ, keyboards, vocals, Nathan East – bass, Steve Gadd – drums, Michelle John – backing vocals, Sharon White – backing vocals.

Here is a peck into the night’s set list: Somebody knocking, Key to the Highway, Pretending, Hoochie Coochie Man,  You are so beautiful – Paul Carrack on vocal, Can’t find my way Home – Nathan  East  – on vocal, I shot the Sheriff,  Rock me Baby, Nobody knows you when your down and out, Tears in Heaven, Layla,  Let it Rain, Wonderful To-night,  Crossroads, Little Queen of Spades, Cocaine, High Time we Went – Encore – Paul Carrack – vocal with guest Andy Fairweather Low.

Congrats to the Corvin Cinema for presenting an unforgettable FAB evening!


At The-End, the audience applauded and  shouted „Once More Please!”  … Others were saying, hope that Eric is waiting for us at the exit 🙂
