Eric Clapton Announces North American Tour Dates For 2017

November 28, 2016

With 2017 right around the corner, one thing to look forward to is the North American tour of rock legend Eric Clapton.

Clapton is set to play only a small handful of tour dates is the US. Four to be exact. Two will be at Madison Square Garden in New York, and the other two will be at The Forum in Los Angeles. 

These four shows mark a recent trend in Clapton's limited tour dates since turning 70 in 2015. In a press release, Clapton is quoted saying, "I know I've been threatening retirement for the last 50 years, but I didn't think I'd ever really want to stop." He continues by saying, "I love what I do and always have done, but over the last few decades I've found what I was always looking for, a loving family who love me just the way I am, which means I can relax and rest when I need to, and more and more I treasure the beauty of that."

Joining Clapton on his tour will be Gary Clark Jr, and Jimmy Vaughan as special guests.
