STEVE WINWOOD and ERIC CLAPTON
On Heels of Three Exclusive Shows at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, Duo Announce A Special 14-City U.S. Tour This Spring

(New York, NY) – After their historic three-nights at Madison Square Garden, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood announced today an exclusive 14-city U.S. tour beginning June 10, 2009.

After a stunning collaboration at the Chicago Crossroads Guitar Festival in July of 2007 and much speculation, Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton announced three eagerly anticipated concerts at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Those shows featured the artists performing together in a varied set list with Blind Faith classics and solo hits from each artist. Critics acclaimed the shows as historic and some of the best Clapton Winwood work ever. The tour promises more of the same collaborative musicianship that made these men legendary award-winning artists.

Both Winwood and Clapton have long and prestigious musical careers with countless honors and awards to their names. Their musical paths connected in 1969 with the formation of Blind Faith, a group that pioneered the fusion of rock and blues into tremendous studio and stage success. Despite critical and popular acclaim, the band was short-lived with only one album and a brief 1969 tour that debuted July 12 at Madison Square Garden and ended August 24th in Hawaii. Since that final show, Winwood and Clapton have remained friends, but have only performed together a few times over the years for an occasional song at a charity event. The 2008 Madison Square Garden shows were the first full Winwood-Clapton concerts in 40 years. Additionally, 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of Blind Faith and 40 years since they performed to over 100,000 people in Hyde Park, London.

Steve Winwood is currently signed to Columbia Records and released an album of new music, NINE LIVES in 2008. Eric Clapton’s compilation album Complete Clapton was released in 2008 on Reprise Records. The duo’s captivating performance at the 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago can be seen as part of a 2-disc DVD available now from Rhino Entertainment.

Thank You Sally.


C'est une très bonne nouvelle compte tenue des prestations des deux compères les 26, 27 et 28 février dernier.
Il ne s'agit ni plus ni moins, d'une tournée entre les deux hommes et non, d'une "simple" participation. Limité aux USA, certes, mais une tournée tout de même. Cela prouve en ce qui me concerne, une véritable et réelle entente entre les deux musiciens Britannique. Un vrai régal pour nos oreilles donc en perspectives.

(et j'aime bien Steve Winwood moi, paf dans les dents Claude )

Salut à tous (ouf depuis le temps que j'avais pas posté ici..).

Pour ce qui concerne le CD/DVD, sont annoncés pour ce printemps (je dirai vers Mai, à l'approche de la tournée future) des coffrets 2CD/2DVD des concerts Clapton/Winwood au MSG de février dernier, donc il paraît peu probable que d'autre soient enregistrés lors de cette tournée d'été.

D'ailleurs, sur le coffret Crossroads 07 on a déja a peu près la moitié de la set-list des concerts de 2008, qui sera certainement encore pour une bonne partie celle des concerts de Juin prochain.. Un peu redondant donc.. même si j'ai été assez agréablement surpris par le résultat des 3 concerts de l'année dernière, j'avoue me demander ce qu'il reste à tirer de neuf dans cette collaboration.

J'aurai largement préféré l'annonce d'une tournée commune avec Robbie Robertson pour encadrer la sortie de leur album/collaboration, surement vers cet été aussi (peut-être est-ce à espérer ?).

Enfin, j'attends déjà de voir ce que donneront les deux concerts communs EC+Jeff Beck japonais de ce week-end, même je m'attends à rien d'extraordinaire : ces collaborations sont surtout dûes au fait que les deux larrons tournent au Japon au même moment et qu'ils se croisent pour l'occasion, on aura donc certainement pas de vraie "collaboration" mais plus un 'double concert' de chacun des deux guitaristes, avec des featurings improvisés ça et là mais certainement pas préparés minutieusement..
