Clapton Daltrey Concert - Summer 2010

If you are a Clapton fan, his book is a great read!

I am so excited! We have tickets to see Eric Clapton and Roger Daltrey in Cincinnati on June 30! Clapton is my all time favorite...we saw him in 1998 (Pilgrim Tour) and he was wonderful!
I've read a couple of reviews of this tour where they have already played and they say that the Who's Roger Daltrey does a really great job too. They both play a lot of their more popular songs and of course Clapton makes his guitar sing with some blues. IMO Clapton is one of the world's greatest guitarists, if not the greatest.

Daltrey plays the 1st hour and Clapton the last hour and a half. As in true Clapton form he does not interact much with the audience but he doesn't need to; his guitar does that for him. Daltrey has more interaction and at one point, with humor, he tells the audience that it has been 40 years since he was an opening act.

The tickets were kind of high, but I figure we will be seeing 2 Grammy winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees; 2 legendary performers in one concert so it is worth the price...I would pay it to see just Clapton again.

Can't wait!
