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.
