One week after his outstanding Crossroads Guitar Festival, Eric Clapton wrapped his 2010 U.S. Tour at Detroit's DTE Energy Music Theatre. The summer shed - formerly Pine Knob Pavilion - was a fairly regular stop for Eric in the 80s and last night's gig marked his first return visit to the venue since 1990. One Detroit area fan, called the tour-closer "terrific" and noted that EC has "never played better." She also told Where's Eric! that EC performed at the venue exactly 25 years ago on 2 and 3 July 1985.
Eric Clapton and His Band visited Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio on 30 June 2010. Starting off wtih a string of back-to-back classics: "Going Down Slow," "Key To The Highway" and "Tell The Truth," the 16 song set featured plenty of blues, deep cuts and Eric's more radio-friendly material. As usual, Eric let his guitar do the talking with some memorable solos. He revised the running order slighty from the Milwaukee concert by moving "Tell The Truth" out of the opening slot.
