Eric Clapton recently took to Twitter to officially announce his limited UK and Ireland tour for 2024. The tour news excited the fans, although some have expressed disappointment regarding its brevity and the absence of certain locations.
Here are the dates:
“Thursday, May 9 – Newcastle, Utilita Arena
Saturday, May 11 – Liverpool, M&S Bank Arena
Monday, May 13 – Birmingham, Resorts World Arena
Thursday, May 16 – Dublin, 3Arena
Monday & Tuesday, May 20 & 21 – London Royal Albert Hall.”
A follow-up tweet said:
“Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 9 at 10 am local.”
So, the highly anticipated tour is scheduled for May 2024 and will include six shows in various cities across the United Kingdom and Ireland. However, some fans were still dissatisfied with certain aspects of the tour. One of them questioned the absence of Scotland on the tour schedule, stating:
“Why no date for Scotland? Are we not still in the UK?”
Another fan wrote:
“Looks like Eric’s never going to come and see us in Northern Ireland.”
One of them also expressed concerns about the pricing of tickets, writing:
“Wow. I want to see a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I can’t go because it’s expensive.”
In March, the guitarist also announced five North American shows to take place in September in the cities of Pittsburgh, Toronto, St. Louis, St. Paul, and Denver. Clapton will also perform at Crossroads Guitar Festival on September 23 and 24 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
