Eric Clapton announces only eight concert dates for his upcoming North American tour, and New Orleans is in that number.
The Grammy Award-winning guitarist and singer-songwriter will stop at the Smoothie King Center on Sept. 18.
Clapton’s band for these shows will include Doyle Bramhall II, Paul Carrack, Nathan East, Sonny Emory, Steve Gadd and Chris Stainton with Sharon White and Katie Kissoon on backing vocals.
Blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan will join the tour as the opening act.
The newly announced shows will be Clapton’s only North American dates for 2021 and will precede his European tour, which was recently rescheduled to Spring of 2022 due to ongoing COVID restrictions in Europe.
