Guitar genius Eric Clapton has announced his dates for 2014 world tour including the visit to Dubai, along with the lineup for his latest band.
Eric Clapton will be performing at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on March 6, 2014.
Returning from last year are Chris Stainton on keyboards, who has been with Clapton for the last 35 years, and vocalists Michelle John and Sharon White, both of which have been part of the band since 2004.
Also back after appearing at a number of Clapton’s 2013 shows is vocalist and keyboard player Paul Carrack. Carrack’s long career has seen him singing on such hits as How Long (Ace), Tempted (Squeeze) and Silent Running and The Living Years (Mike + the Mechanics). In 2013, Carrack sang a couple of his own songs during Eric Clapton’s show and closed with a cover of Joe Cocker’s High Time We Went.
Nathan East, who played bass with Eric Clapton from 1984 to 2004, returns to the band as does Steve Gadd on drums who has played on and off with Eric since 1976.
