Guitar legend announces new tour dates at the Royal Albert Hall

Published: Tuesday 28th of October 2008

Widely considered to be one of the greatest blues guitarists to have ever picked up a plectrum, Eric Clapton is to play two additional shows at the Royal Albert Hall next year, it has been announced.

The musical legend will play the world-famous concert venue on May 25th and 26th, adding to the six dates that had previously been confirmed.

The dates will form part of his much-anticipated 2009 UK and Ireland Tour.

Slowhand, as he is known, has played some of his most famous performances in the Royal Albert Hall in recent years and has said it is among his favourite venues.

Fans could see him give over entire performances to alternative versions of his songs in blues or country styles, as he has been know to do in the past.

Eric Clapton has been a member of a number of hugely influential bands before embarking on an equally successful solo career.

In 2000 he became the only musician to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times, having received the honour for his work with Cream, the Yardbirds and finally as a solo artist.

LondonPass holders can enjoy a free tour of the Royal Albert Hall in London's Kensington, a saving of £8.
