    Celebrating his 50th year as a professional musician, Eric Clapton announced today a limited number of 2013 UK concerts including five nights at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall. After signing with the Yardbirds in 1963, Clapton began a career as a professional musician that has seen numerous bands, an abundance of albums, countless worldwide sold out shows, an impressive array of accolades, unwavering critical acclaim and his consistent display of legendary guitar work. These concerts will mark his return to the stage after spending 2012 in the studio working on a new album to be released in early 2013.

    Clapton has assembled an impressive band for the 2013 dates which will consist of long-time touring partners: Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Steve Jordan (drums), Chris Stainton (piano and keyboards), and Willie Weeks (bass), along with newcomers Paul Carrack (organ and keyboards) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar). Michelle John and Sharon White will join the touring band again as backing vocalists.

    Tickets go on sale Friday, September 21st with an EC Access Fan Club pre-sale beginning Wednesday, September 19th. Check local ticket agencies for availability and pricing.
