Tokyo 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Nippon Budokan, Tokyo, Japan; February 21, 2014. Fairly/very good audience recording.

Eric Clapton kicked off his 2014 Tour in Tokyo on February 18. (Other Japan dates were Feb 20, 21, 23, 25, 26 and 28.) This year marks 40 years of touring Japan for Eric. And like his first visit in 1974, he opened the Japanese dates at the Nippon Budokan. The sold-out crowd was in their seats before lights out and the concert started promptly at 7 pm which is the norm in Japan. Eric and his band treated the audience to the guitarist’s biggest hits, blues and gems from his back catalog with quite a few surprises including “Honest Man,” “After Midnight” and “Alabama Woman”. -

Thanks to mini for taping the show; uploader Popstar12345; and to marantz123 for sharing the show at Dime.

  5. has eric ever covered a monkees song?

  6. Perfunctory, professional performance by EC. Well-played, nothing out of the box. After 50 years you learn he will play to the level of the occasion: giving his best performances with his idols (BB King, Buddy Guy) or contemporaries (Warren Haynes), or when the event calls for something extra (Crossroads). Of course you have heard it ALL before. He plays the blues and classic rock, and he plays both as well as anyone who has ever lived.

  8. Eric Clapton wrote in his book that the first time he did LSD was with the Monkees.

  9. You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be actually something that I feel I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look forward in your next post, I will try to get the hold of it!|
