Eric Clapton - Hartford, CT - 1990-04-12

Eric Clapton at the Civic Center in Hartford, CT on April 12, 1990.

This is the first time I saw Clapton live and I really dug this show. Clapton was out in support of the Journeyman record which had a bunch of radio hits and really kick-started him into the 90s...I sort of lost my interest in Clapton as the 90s progressed but man, what a career. Having major (and numerous) hits in 4 or 5 decades is no small feat...

The line-up for this tour, in addition to Clapton, was:

Phil Palmer - Guitar
Nathan East - Bass
Steve Ferrone - Drums
Greg Phillinganes - Keyboards
Alan Clark - Keyboards
Ray Cooper - Percussion
Katie Kissoon - Backing Vocals
Tessa Niles - Backing Vocals

The setlist:

Disc One
Pretending
No Alibis
Running On Faith
I Shot the Sheriff >
White Room
Can't Find My Way Home
Bad Love
Before You Accuse Me
After Midnight

Disc Two

And the source for the recording is:
