LUSHINGTON ENTERTAINMENTS is proud to announce Eric Clapton on his 2011 world tour. Clapton will perform in Singapore on 14 Feb 2011 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Directly on the heels of Eric Claptonâ€™s new album, â€œClaptonâ€, being released, the artist announced an initial set of dates for his 2011 tour that will encompass Ireland and the U.K. including four nights at Londonâ€™s famed Royal Albert Hall. Additional touring dates include Asia, which will take place in February 2011.
Critics are already raving about the latest Clapton album as a new and inspiring body of work by one of the worldâ€™s most legendary guitar players. Co-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, the album features an all star cast of musical collaborations starting with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmondâ€”and the sessions later added guests including Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks. Clapton created a collection that touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals. The result is both relaxed and revelatory, and unlike anything the guitarist has done in his legendary career.
Clapton has assembled an impressive band for the 2011 tour which will consist of long-time touring partners: Steve Gadd (drums), Willie Weeks (bass), Chris Stainton (keyboards) along with Michelle John and Sharon White as backing vocalists.
Eric Clapton is the only triple inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame (as a member of both the Yardbirds and Cream and as a solo artist). He has also won or shared in eighteen Grammy Awards. Clapton has also contributed to numerous artistsâ€™ albums over the decades and toured extensively performing thousands of concerts around the globe. Throughout his career, critics and fans have viewed Clapton as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and #53 on their list of the “Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time”. In 2010, Clapton was ranked #4 on Gibsonâ€™s Top 50 Guitarists of All Time.
The 2011 concerts mark the return of Eric Clapton to these shores since his Far East Tour in 2007.
