ERIC CLAPTON and STEVE WINWOOD Announce 2010 European Tour

(London, UK) -- On the heels of a stunning collaboration at Madison Square Garden which earned them two U.S. Grammy nominations, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood announced today an eagerly anticipated European tour. The tour will start May 18 in Birmingham UK and travel across Europe to finish June 13 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Both Clapton and Winwood have long and prestigious musical careers with countless honors and awards to their names. Their musical paths connected in 1969 with the formation of Blind Faith, a group that pioneered the fusion of rock and blues into tremendous studio and stage success. Despite critical and popular acclaim, the band was short-lived with only one album and a brief 1969 tour that debuted July 12 at Madison Square Garden and ended August 24th in Hawaii. Since that final show, Clapton and Winwood have remained friends, but have only performed together a few times over the years for an occasional song at a charity event. The 2008 Madison Square Garden shows were the first full Clapton-Winwood concerts in almost 40 years.

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood’s three amazing nights at Madison Square Garden were captured on DVD in the recent release Live From Madison Square Garden available from Rhino Entertainment. The artists can be found at www.ericclapton.com and www.stevewinwood.com.
