What a concert!
I’m really not into concerts which feature the artistes showcasing different outfits, or … the troops of dancers making the musical thumps visually more enhancing (I love dances, but I love concerts for the music itself). Eric Clapton was totally engrossed in his music, in fact, he only said “Good evening” and maybe 8 times of “Thank You” throughout the 100min concert. He didn’t have to say more than that, he let the music do the talking and connecting. That kept the audience wanting more, like a child deprived of sweets and raving for some, and more. Loved his entourage – Chris Stainton on keys, Paul Carrack on rhodes (who was also on vocals for some songs), Nathan East on bass, Steve Gadd on drums.
My favourite song for the evening: Nobody knows you when you’re out and down
