Eric Clapton announces 2020 European tour

Iconic guitarist Eric Clapton hits the road next year for a European Tour, which will take place in the first half of our beloved festival season.

Clapton and his band will visit 12 European cities and play three dates in Russia between May 29 and June 30 2020. The tour dates make a Glastonbury Festival appearance unlikely, but do get our spidey senses tingling for a potential Isle of Wight Festival slot in July.

It has been announced that Clapton will be accompanied by a “superb” band of musicians, including longtime associates Nathan East (bass), Paul Carrack (keyboards), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Sharon White and Katie Kissoon (backing vocalists).
