eric-clapton-in-concertEric Patrick Clapton CBE probably for me one of the greatest guitar players of all time will be here in Manchester in May and as a blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer, you can be sure it will be a great evening of entertainment. He is probably most famous for his mesmerising skills on the Stratocaster guitar. And has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not just once but uniquely 3 times as a member of the Yardbirds, of Cream, and as a solo performer.

Eric Clapton’s solo career has seen him become, arguably, the UK’s most influential and commercially successful guitarist after his formative years as a member of classic groups The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream and Blind Faith. His touring band always includes some of the most highly respected and sought after musicians in the world. His hit singles include original songs such as Tears in Heaven (for which he won six Grammies), Wonderful Tonight and Layla together with classic versions of tracks such as, I Shot the Sheriff, Knockin on Heaven’s Door and Cocaine.
Eric will be preforming at the MEN Arena on Thursday 14th May 2009 – 7.30pm and tickets are available from here.
