Eric Clapton Rocks Sydney!

Published // 08.Mar.09

Eric Clapton's current tour stopped at Sydney's Entertainment Centre on Sunday, 8 March.

Like previous evenings on this outting, Eric Clapton drew his set list from material recorded by him prior to 1974 along with a good number of blues. Songs performed by EC included "Motherless Child," "Motherless Children," and "I Shot The Sheriff."

The set list changed a bit for this show as EC surprised the audience with performances of "Little Wing," "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" and "Before You Accuse Me."

One fan, who was lucky enough to attend both the Hunter Valley and Sydney concerts told Where's Eric!, "I think EC was in better form tonight [than in Hunter Valley]. He seemed to be more jovial on stage and the band was chatting and laughing amongst themselves throughout the show. The solos seemed to go longer tonight for both EC and the rest of the band. When I read some of the other reviews for other countries, I thought I may be disappointed with these shows, but they were full of energy and style. I enjoyed both shows immensely."

The band now moves on to Melbourne for the final gig of this tour on 10 March.

Eric was supported in Sydney by Jeff Lang.
