Eric Clapton Doubles Down

The number of shows Eric Clapton will perform in the U.S. in 2017 has doubled as Slowhand announces two more nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden and a couple of evenings at Los Angeles’ Forum.

Celebrating his 50 years in music, Clapton has added Sept. 7-8 to his MSG plans and Sept. 15-16 for the rehabbed Forum in the L.A. community of Inglewood. The shows are in addition to Clapton’s originally announced March 19-20 run at The Garden and his March 25-26 stay at the Forum. All four nights feature special guests Gary Clark Jr., and Jimmie Vaughan.

The concerts are presented by Chase, which has had a relationship with Clapton going back to when the company was the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival. That means Chase customers can buy tickets via a presale beginning Feb. 2 at 12 p.m. EST and running through Feb. 3 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
