Eric Clapton's 11-date U.S. Tour came to an end on 13 March at the Amway Arena in Orlando, Florida. The tour started on 25 February, immediately after a 6-show 4-city jaunt with co-headliner Jeff Beck. The Orlando set list was identical to that performed two-days previous in Sunrise, Florida. A fan in attendance told Where's Eric!, "I always take as my guest a friend of mine who has never seen EC before. When they arrive they are usually just a casual fan who would never think of going if I hadn't invited.
PHOTOS ADDED!! Eric Clapton played to a packed Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida on 11 March 2010. Like previous shows on the short U.S. Tour, it was broken into three sections: electric / acoustic / electric. One fan who checked in soon after the show with Where's Eric! said, "[Eric kicked off] with a rousing version of 'Going Down Slow' but really hit his stride four songs in with 'Old Love' which has always been a real favorite of mine.
