Where's Eric's roving reporter Heidi W. checked in briefly with the rest of the WE! Team immediately afterward. "A really great vibe in Belfast - it will be hard to top tonight's show. Lots of banter on stage with a very talkative EC.
Less than a month after his wildly successful Crossroads Guitar Festival, Eric Clapton opened the second leg of his 50 Years Further Up The Road Tour in Dublin. Through 19 June, EC and His Band will visit 19 cities throughout the UK and Europe, including seven nights at London's Royal Albert Hall. At The O2 on 9 May, EC kicked things off with "Hello Old Friend" and over the next 2 hours and 15 minutes, touched on his biggest hits, his love of the blues and some deep cuts. Eric debuted two songs in the live arena: "Come Rain Or Come Shine" (from 2000's Riding With The King) and "Further On Down The Road" (from his most recent disc, Old Sock).
