The Tears in Heaven star will perform alongside his long-term backing band throughout the duration of the tour, with the inclusion of two newcomers Paul Carrack and Greg Leisz on the keyboard and pedal steel guitar.

Eric Clapton recently made the headlines after he sold a painting by established German artist Gerhard Richter for £21.3 million at a London auction.
