Would like to see him in Louisville, KY at the KFC Yum Center.

Really hoping he comes down to Australia, many agree. I would love to see him in Melbourne!

dk70 said “ He only sold out every arena he ‘s ever played in since 1970.” I like Clapton but that is very far from being the truth. In the mid 80’s he played at nassau Coliseum and there were tickets available the day of show and walk up business was brisk. No way he sold out Nassau that night.
After he had his resurgence in the early 90’s, he became a hot ticket again.

Just got my tickets for Singapore. Decent seats seem to be selling fast for that one.

Come on Eric! Come to Paraguay! (Dreaming is free… Still)
