Health problems over the last couple of years have limited Clapton to only a handful of dates and festival appearances. He had stated in recent interviews that his back issues led to some seated performances and the Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) has become worse over 50+ years in the business. However, ABC has announced two, concerts in NYC at Madison Square Garden October 6th and 7th. Tickets will go on-sale this coming Friday, March 16, at 10 a.m. ET, while Chase card holders will be able to buy pre-sale tickets starting one day earlier from Ticketmaster.com.
Joining the Hall of Fame Legend will be guitarist Jimmie Vaughan and acclaimed blues-rocker Gary Clark Jr. at each show.
