Clapton Concert Details: Scotiabank Place, Ottawa
Eric Clapton and his band rocked the Scotiabank Place in Ottawa on Tuesday evening, 26 September 2006. As with previous shows, the set list was made up of songs from Clapton's back catalog like "After Midnight," "Layla" "Motherless Children", and "Everybody Oughta Make A Change" along with more recent material.
Blistering guitar work from Eric, Doyle Bramhall II and Derek Trucks thrilled concert-goers particularly on "I Shot The Sheriff". A short, sit-down acoustic set featured the title track to EC's most recent CD, "Back Home", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" and "I Am Yours."
Band members Steve Jordan (drums), Willie Weeks (bass), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Tim Carmon (keyboards), Michelle John (backing vocals) and Sharon White (backing vocals) also deserve kudos according to those in attendance. This band keeps getting hotter!
