    On 14 May 2015, Eric Clapton kicked off his 17th residency at London's famed Royal Albert Hall. Speaking to the 5,000-strong audience at the start of his second concert on 15 May, EC dedicated the performance to B.B. King, who passed away the evening before at age 89.
    The second concert of the run also marked the British Blues Legend's 200th appearance at the venue since 1964 and made EC the first guitarist to achieve that number of performances at the venue.
    On both evenings, the crowd gave EC a standing ovation and serenaded him with a chorus of "Happy Birthday" prior to the start of the acoustic / sit down set.
