Eric Clapton & His Band Wrap Tour In Melbourne

Eric Clapton and His Band wrapped up their February and March dates at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on 10 March. EC shuffled the set list a bit for the final night of the tour. Included were many songs from Derek and the Dominos' landmark album, Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs ("Tell The Truth," "Little Wing," "Layla," "Key To The Highway," "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out"). Also performed were his radio-friendly hits ("Wonderful Tonight", "I Shot The Sheriff") and blues standards "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Driftin'." One fan said!, "What a concert! Eric took the Sydney show and turned it up to 12! ... The overall sound for the night was just like Sydney with Eric constantly using his mid boost for those crunchier, thicker tones. The sounds his guitar achieved tonight deserve credit in themselves." Eric's 2009 touring activities now go on hiatus until May when things will pick up with dates in Ireland and England....

One fan, who was lucky enough to attend both the Hunter Valley and Sydney concerts told Where's Eric!, "I think EC was in better form tonight [than in Hunter Valley]. He seemed to be more jovial on stage and the band was chatting and laughing amongst themselves throughout the show. The solos seemed to go longer tonight for both EC and the rest of the band. When I read some of the other reviews for other countries, I thought I may be disappointed with these shows, but they were full of energy and style. I enjoyed both shows immensely." ...
