Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood Band Lineup for 2010 Tour Announced

Published // 11.May.10

Legendary musicians Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood kick off their 16 date European 2010 Tour on 18 May at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England. The tour includes two nights at London’s Wembley Arena, an "open air" concert on the Konigsplatz in Munich, plus “one night only” stops in Antwerp, Paris, Arnhem, Berlin, Vienna, Belgrade, Istanbul and other cities. Eric and Steve will be joined on stage by Chris Stainton (keyboards), Willie Weeks (bass) Steve Gadd (drums) with backing vocals by Michelle John and Sharon White.

Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood first connected in 1969 when they formed Blind Faith with Ginger Baker and Rick Grech. One of rock music's first "supergroups", the band was short-lived and released only one album. The eagerly anticipated 2010 European dates follow last summer’s U.S. Tour. Their three amazing nights at Madison Square Garden in February 2008 were captured on Live From Madison Square Garden. Released in May 2009, the DVD and CD sets highlight the duo’s shared history in Blind Faith, their abiding love of the blues, coupled with some signature solo songs and a few of their personal favorites.

Chris Stainton first joined Eric Clapton's band in 1979 and has been an integral part of EC's touring and recording bands for much of the last 30 years. Steve Gadd first joined Clapton’s band during the blues tour and remained with the band until 1996. He then rejoined Eric’s band from September 1998 through the 2004 World Tour and again from May 2009. Sharon White and Michelle John joined Eric Clapton’s band in 2004 while bass legend Willie Weeks signed on in 2006. Chris, Willie, Michelle and Sharon were all on the road last summer in the U.S. with Eric and Steve. This will be Steve Gadd’s first Clapton / Winwood outing. Tickets are still available for select dates.
