(Updated with ticket purchase informaton) Celebrating his 50th year as a professional musician, Eric Clapton announced today a limited number of 2013 UK concerts including five nights at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall.

Clapton has assembled an impressive band for the 2013 dates which will consist of long-time touring partners: Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Steve Jordan (drums), Chris Stainton (piano and keyboards), and Willie Weeks (bass), along with newcomers Paul Carrack (organ and keyboards) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar).
