Eric Clapton paid a visit to Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center on Wednesday June 30th

Eric Clapton on June 30, 2010 Cincinnati, Ohio

Eric Clapton just held his yearly Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago on June 26th.  After this festival, Eric hit the road and stopped in Cincinnati as part of his tour with The Who’s Roger Daltrey.  Roger Daltrey took the stage around 7:30 and delivered an energy filled 45 minute set.  Eric Clapton hit the stage around 8:40pm and delivered a solid evening of music.  Eric took the stage and started the night off with a wonderful rendition of Tell The Truth.  He would then continue playing his electric guitar on Key To The Highway, After Midnight, Tough Luck.  He then played a great version of the obvious crowd favorite, I Shot The Sheriff.  Eric would then put away the electric guitar and take a seat to play his acoustic axe.  He started off with Driftin’ and then played a remarkable version of Knowbody Knows When Your Down and Out.  He would continue the acoustic part of his show with I’ve Got A Rock ‘n’ Roll Heart and then another crowd favorite, Layla.  He would wrap the acoustic songs with When Somebody Thinks Your Wonderful.  Once he put away his acoustic guitar, the last third of the show would bring the night to a fever pitch.  The show continued with Badge, Wonderful Tonight, Before You Accuse Me,  and Little Queen of Spades.  Eric would finish the show with Cocaine,  his second JJ Cale original of the night.  The crowd rose to their feet and wanted another song for the encore.  Eric and company obliged with a memorable version of Crossroads.
