Rock and roll legend Eric Clapton will headline a concert with special guest The Wallflowers. The stop in Austin will be Clapton’s only appearance in the area. Clapton is the only three-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has won 17 Grammy awards and placed second on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time last year. This will be Clapton’s third concert at the Frank Erwin Center and the first in almost 18 years.
Clapton has assembled an impressive band for the U.S. dates, which will consist of long-time touring partners Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Steve Jordan (drums), Chris Stainton (piano and keyboards) and Willie Weeks (bass), along with newcomers Paul Carrack (organ and keyboards) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar). Michelle John and Sharon White will join the touring band again as backing vocalists.
