He joined The Yardbirds in 1963 and the following years saw him join John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, and Derek and The Dominos along with five decade solo career that includes an abundance of albums, countless sold out shows, an impressive array of accolades, unwavering critical acclaim and his consistent display of legendary guitar work.

In Tokyo, Eric Clapton will be accompanied by a superb band of musicians, including longtime associates Nathan East (bass), Paul Carrack (keyboards), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Sonny Emory (drums), Sharon White and Katie Kissoon (backing vocalists).
