Final Leg Of Clapton's Summer Tour Starts 6 August

Published // 04.Aug.08

Eric Clapton and His Band are getting ready to head back out on the final leg of the 2008 Summer Tour! The U.S., Canadian, Irish and U.K. dates took place in May and June. After taking off the month of July, Eric's first gig of the European leg happens on 6 August 2008 in Bergen, Norway. It will be followed by dates in Iceland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and Monaco. The tour wraps on 23 August.

Eric's band features Chris Stainton (keyboards), Doyle Bramhall II (guitar / vocals), Willie Weeks (bass), Abe Laboriel Jr (drums), Michelle John (backing vocals) and Sharon White (backing vocals).

Support for the first night of the tour in Norway is Grande, with Ellen Kristjansdottir opening in Iceland.

Jakob Dylan - who's solo album "Seeing Things" was recently released - will support Eric Clapton in Leipzig, Berlin, Munich, Weisbaden and Zurich. You can learn more about him on his official website, jakobdylan.com.

Dzem - Poland's premiere blues band - will open in on 14 August for Eric in Gdynia. Visit their website at dzem.com.pl

Set lists, fan reviews and photos will be published as always here on whereseric.com in the Tour section. Since Where's Eric! is staffed by a small number of fan-volunteers so it is impossible for us to attend all shows on a tour. We invite our fellow fans around the world to help build an accurate and complete concert archive by submitting set lists and other details from the concerts they attend.

To share your concert experience, email the following details to the Where's Eric! Team at info@whereseric.com:
- Show date and venue name
- The complete set list (this information is essential to ongoing archival work)
- Your review
- Images from the venue or of memorabilia like tickets, handbills, programmes, posters
- Include your name and city so it can be featured with your review (no aliases or anonymous submissions)

If you are unable to send us a complete concert review, please consider participating by submitting the show set list (include date please) to info@whereseric.com.

Due to space limitations, all reviews may not be used, but we'll do our best. When sending images, please only submit those that you have personally taken.

Plus, there will be complete coverage in the next issue of Where's Eric! Magazine with in-depth critical reviews of concerts, exclusive photographs, a "train spotters guide" to all songs performed during the tour and all regular magazine features.
