Awesome in Arnhem: Clapton and Winwood Perform Powerhouse Set on 29 May
With a gig at the Gelredome in Arnhem on 29 May, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood reached the mid-point of their 16-date European Tour. The set list has settled in after some changes earlier in the week and was identical to that performed in Dusseldorf and Basel. One fan checking in via blackberry right after the show called it "A dream come true, an unforgettable experience." An American fan on holiday wrote from their iPhone "I time travelled back to 1969! Words can't describe how powerful these musicians still are on stage. Voodoo Chile was unreal." Still another fan reported via text "A tremendous show in Arnhem; same set list as last night. Highlights for me were an awesome Voodoo Chile plus Glad / Well Alright, Tuff Luck, Crossroads, Georgia, Driftin' and Gimme Some Lovin'. Chris Stainton played a brilliant solo during Cocaine."
The band has a day off before performing at the Malmo Arena in Sweden on Monday, 31 May.
