Thanks to my friend Julie who managed to get tickets, we went to the Eric Clapton Concert in Zurich on August 20th. This must have been one of the best!
Clapton and band started out with a couple of soulful songs, of which “Here but I’m Gone” was the most stunning performance in my humble opinion. I also really liked the acoustic set in the middle of the show; a guitar lesson by a guitar god. Clapton was in an excellent mood, smiling at the audience throughout and his fingerwork was just plain incredible. The concert ended on some of the classics like “Wonderful Tonight”, “Layla”, and “Cocaine”. With the encore, it was a good two hours of some of the finest music.
The other star of the evening for me was the incredible Chris Stainton on the keyboard. These guys are both well north of 60, simply amazing!
