Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood Rock Philadelphia!

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood continued their 14-date jaunt around the United States with a stop in Philadelphia. One fan told Where's Eric, "As good as night one was on Wednesday, this show was better. There were a few minor flubs - like EC and Steve missing their vocal cues in "Forever Man" - but overall, they really nailed this one." A long-time fan who travelled from the U.K. to see the show said, "The one thing that amazed me most was I saw a totally 'different' EC than at the RAH less than two weeks ago. He was good then, but when isn't he. Tonight? I've never heard him like this. It was like travelling back to 1969 the way he played. Winwood really pushed him to an entirely different level. Amazing." For more commentary and the complete set list,...

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood Open U.S. Tour At New Jersey's Izod Center

Legendary musicians Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood opened up their 14-date tour of the United States on 10 June 2009 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Like the now-historic shows at Madison Square Garden last year, the tour was not billed as a reunion of their supergroup, Blind Faith. Yet, their set certainly played homage to Blind Faith's lone album, with the entire A side of it being performed in their 2 hour 15 minute concert. The band now includes the supremely talented backing vocalists Michelle John and Sharon White. Their vocals filled gaps that weren't entirely noticeable last year, but with their addition, many fans commented after the show much was indeed missing in that area, particularly on some of the Blind Faith numbers. Abe Laboriel Jr. is a brilliant addition to the rhythm section, which also features bass legend Willie Weeks. Abe's percussive talents are familiar to many from his previous stints in Eric Clapton's band, as well as with Paul McCartney.
