Fans: Get Ready To Submit Set Lists & Concert Reviews! EC's 2011 Ireland, UK & Scandinavian Tour Begins 9 May
Eric Clapton and His Band are getting ready to head out on the road for the second leg of the 2011 concert tour. Things kick off 9 May at the O2 in Dublin. Then, the band heads off to Belfast, Glasgow, Cardiff, and London with 11 nights at the Royal Albert Hall (5 of them with Steve Winwood). In June, there is a four-date tour of Scandinavia with stops in Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo and Herning. EC's band for all solo dates features Chris Stainton (keyboards), Tim Carmon (keyboards), Willie Weeks (bass), Steve Gadd (drums), Sharon White (backing vocals) and Michelle John (backing vocals).
As always, Where's Eric! will be publishing set lists and reviews in the Tour Section of whereseric.com but, WE! can't do it without YOU! If you're heading to one or more of the gigs in the next few weeks, email set lists and reviews to [email protected]. It doesn’t matter if it’s your 1st Eric Clapton concert or your 101st – everyone’s perspective is welcome! Thousands of EC's fans from all over the world will visit whereseric.com daily to check out what songs are played and read what other fans have to say about the shows. Here's how to help keep your fellow fans informed:
After you attend an EC Concert, send the following details to [email protected]:
- Show date and venue name
- The complete set list
- Your review
- Be sure to include your name and city so it can be featured with your review (no aliases or anonymous submissions, please. Upon request, we will use your first name and surname initial only.)
- Feel free to include information about EC's guitars, amps and effects pedals
- You can also send your photos from the concert or of memorabilia. Things like tickets, handbills, programmes, posters or local concert advertising (the best photos may be even be published in Where's Eric! Magazine). All photos should be at least 500K in file size; sending your original, unedited images is best. Scans of tickets, flyers etc. should be at 150 dpi.
The Where’s Eric! Team will try to get set lists and reviews posted as quickly as possible after a show. Due to space limitations, all reviews may not be used on whereseric.com, but we'll do our best. When sending images, only submit photographs you have personally taken.
Please remember that the Where's Eric! Team is made up of a very small number of fan-volunteers. It is impossible for the staff to be at all shows on a tour. That's why we ask our fellow fans to assist in building an accurate concert archive by submitting set lists and other details from each tour stop. Even if you don't have the time to write a full-fledged review, feel free to participate in this project by sending the complete set list to [email protected]. After all, WE! can't do it without YOU!
All reviews and set lists submitted will be hosted permanently in the 2011 Tour Archive on whereseric.com.
Tickets are still available for select shows from official ticket sellers (see Tour Dates for ticket information).
