Just wondering if there is any word on what Clapton's/Truck show in Paris? I'm sure there were alot of jaws dropping when Derek took his first solo. I hope Clapton gives Derek space to really expand and push somes songs to new places. Looking forward to any feedback or setlists. Thanks

Except in Red Square where the DVD will be released before the show actually happens.

Notice how they high light Derek more than the other two guitar players. Now that says a lot.

I read the reviews and they are a bit weak in my opinion. We need some Allmans fans out there to review the shows!! Can't wait for the Derek Trucks DVD to be released in late Summer.

No Cray wasn't there. My guess, just a guess, EC & Co have been rehearsing and this was just a chance to do it in front of a live audience before the UK run. Work out the kinks, my guess is that Cray will hook up with them in the UK.

I'm glad it worked out this way, they played a solid 2 hours. Don't know if that will be the case when they have Cray opening.

PS forgot to mention in my review, Eric and Doyle went through a half dozen guitars each in the course of the show. Derek only 2 - the Gibson & an acoustic.

Hey I like that last review. Honest and true. Any word on tapers? These shows are a must have.

'Anyday' was then aired (they had rehearsed it on the last tour) and was very tastefully performed - EC's slide was almost matched by Derek's.



....good to hear Derek can 'almost' play slide as good as EC.

Here's a review of the Glasgow show:

Just what you'd expect from a divine guitarist

David Sinclair
10 May 2006 - The Times

Eric Clapton. SECC, Glasgow ***

Eric Clapton is a performer with little to promote and even less to prove. His most recent album, Back Home, was released nine months ago to a chorus of lukewarm reviews, and promptly forgotten.

His latest tour has nevertheless sold out with a minimum of fuss. It began in Glasgow with a show that offered few surprises, but underlined the enduring star quality of a man who, at 61, appears not only to have recognised his destiny but also to have come to terms with his past. In particular, last year's reunion shows with Cream seem to have reawakened the guitar hero in him.

While his supremely fluent technique has never deserted him, it was getting harder to ignore the impression in recent years that Clapton was rather going through the motions when it came to the big, set-piece solos. Not so at Glasgow, where he still sang in his sleepy, soulful drawl, but played guitar with a rediscovered energy and urgency.

His choice of sidemen was instructive. As well as the long-serving guitarist Doyle Bramhall, Clapton had recruited the services of Derek Trucks, 26, who has been hailed as the greatest slide guitarist of his generation. Trucks, who was named after Derek and the Dominos, is a disciple of the late Duane Allman, and his contributions brought renewed vigour to the crowd-pleasing finale of Layla, along with other favourites from that era, including, Nobody Knows You when You're Down and Out and a gorgeous acoustic version of the rarely performed I Am Yours.

Wearing a lilac shirt and a chocolate Stratocaster, Clapton looked relaxed, but said little. "You're the first to see this show," he told the crowd, "so please bear with us if it is still a bit sloppy."

Musically, it sounded close to perfect, with Bramhall and Trucks spurring Clapton on to give of his best. But the vision mixing on the big screens at the side needed to be sharpened up. The number of times the camera remained glued to Clapton's fretboard while one of the other guitarists was soloing was embarrassing.

Steve Jordan, the drummer, also seemed on a mission to liven up the show. Faster songs, such as After Midnight and Motherless Children, were taken at breakneck speed, and the encore of Crossroads, featuring a guest appearance by Robert Cray (who had earlier played a robust support set), was a fine rough and tumble.

Clapton remains a supremely gifted performer, drifting elegantly into the home straight. But there was some of the old fire here as well.

Tour details: NEC, Birmingham, May 11; Hallam FM Arena, Sheffield, May 12; Nottingham Arena, May 14; Royal Albert Hall, London, May 16, 17, 19, 22, 23, 25, 26

a manchester review from a clapton faithful friend of mine...

Well Mr. Trucks was a highlight of the Eric show. Playing mean slide and especially on the acoustic numbers. He played an actual acoustic guitar on one song then he returned to the Gibson SG and Eric carried on on acoustic for four songs.

Lots from the Derek & the Dominoes period, Anyway, Layla, After Midnight, Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out, I am Yours, Got to Get Better in a Little While, plus some recent songs and some Robert Johnson blues and the crowd pleasers (Cocaine, Wonderful Tonight, Sheriff) .

(Originally posted on Anything Goes board).

Just got back from Manchester.

First time I've been to an "arena" gig and may be the last. Seats were side-on to stage and very high up. Audience also very reserved. Before the encore, 2 - yes 2 - people stood and danced and one quickly sat down again!

Robert Cray Band was fine. Not as bluesy as I expected and original material was weak IMHO.

Clapton band was very good as an ensemble, with EC very much the leader. Tight arrangements and not much jamming. Derek very much in role of sideman (and no rug!) but took short solos on most songs. I felt he missed his cue in Nobody Knows You, after Chris Stainton, and (in Everybody Ought to Make a Change?) there was a long pause before he began his solo. Whether it was a deliberate pregnant pause I don't know but he ripped out a great solo anyway. He was excellent in the "acoustic" set - Derek actually played the SG in all but the first song. He played the SG unchanged the whole show, I think.

The arrangement of Layla did not have the usual segue into the coda, but an ending which led the audience - not unreasonably - to believe the song was ending, which was kind of bad. Motherless Children and After Midnight were taken at high tempo and it has to be said EC was in great form on the guitar.

A learning experience for Derek. Those who don't know him will come away impressed; those who do will admire his discipline and regret perhaps that he had no real opportunities to cut loose.This is definitely an Eric, and not and Eric and Derek, show.

By the way, The Times reported that Robert Cray guested on the encore (Crossroads) in Glasgow but he didn't at Manchester.
