Happy 70th Birthday, Eric Clapton!

Why celebrate your birthday on just one day when you can party the whole month long? Eric Clapton has planned a four-night bday bash at London’s Royal Albert Hall in March, leading up to his 70th on March 30.

Clapton first played Royal Albert Hall nearly five decades ago. He made his debut at the venue Dec. 7, 1964 when he performed with The Yardbirds for BBC-2 TV’s “Top Beat Show.” Slowhand has since come back to the Hall many, many times, including Cream’s U.K. Farewell Concerts on Nov. 20, 1968. According to the Hall’s count, the guitarist has taken the stage at the venue on 197 occasions – 171 of which were headline performances.
