Eric Clapton's 50 Years Further On Up The Road Tour stopped at the Manchester Arena on 14 May. Peter Kay - yes, Peter Kay - joined the band for the first encore number, "Sunshine Of Your Love". But first, EC started the encore off with a little "double shovel" (check out the video, below). Eric also refreshed the set list at this show, reordering some songs, dropping "Wonderful Tonight" and introducing "Goodnight Irene," "Tears In Heaven," and "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" for the first time on this leg of the tour. No fan reviews, yet. It must have been quite a night in Manchester!
Eric Clapton's 2013 Tour stopped at Birmingham's LG Arena on Monday, 13 May. The set list was tweaked a bit from the two previous concerts in Dublin and Belfast, with "I Shot The Sheriff" making its first appearance on the second leg of the tour. "What an amazing night," according to Matt S. "I have seen Eric countless times but last night his solos were out of this world. You knew he was in the mood as soon as he plugged in his grigio grey strat! I loved "Hello Old Friend" - such a great starter to the night."

Proving to be a very popular new member of Eric Clapton’s 2013 touring band, well-known singer-songwriter, Paul Carrack, has released a new video for the song "If I Should Fall Behind."

The album is a collection of originals and covers including co-writes with his old Squeeze pal Chris Difford and British songwriting treasure, Charlie Dore. It's available in both digital and physical formats from Paul's official online store at paulcarrack.net. Signed CDs available, too.
