Eric Clapton and His Band are wrapping up their 2013 concerts this week with two shows in Basel, Switzerland. The shows are part of the "Baloise Sessions" indoor concert series and happen at the Event Halle in Basel. In front of 1500 people, Eric and his band peformed a 20 song set on 13 November , including five songs in memory of JJ Cale: "Don't Go To Strangers" (the opening number), "Since You Said Goodbye," After Midnight," "Call Me The Breeze" and "Cocaine." "After Midnight," rarely seen in a Clapton set list, was performed in the style of JJ Cale, rather than the way it has been recorded in the studio by Eric (in 1970 and 1987).
Eric Clapton will perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 4 March 2014. It will be his fourth appearance in Singapore, following concerts in 1990, 2007 and 2011. Tickets are available from 13 November at the Indoor Stadium Sports Hub Box Office and all other Singpost outlets. Book online on www.sportshubtix.sg or via phone through 6333 5000. Ticket prices start from S$108.
