Former Blind Faith members Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood kicked off their U.S. tour last night at the Izod Center in East Rutherford. Those hoping the pair would switch up the setlist from last year’s three-show run at Madison Square Garden won’t find too many differences but there were a few.
Them Changes and Crossroads were nowhere to be found last night, while an acoustic version of Layla – featuring a stunning piano solo by Winwood, Tough Luck Blues, Driftin’ and Nobody Knows You When You’re Down & Out have been added to the set. Let’s take a look at the setlist…
Set: Had To Cry Today, Low Down, After Midnight, Sleeping In The Ground, Presence Of The Lord, Glad, Well Alright, Tough Luck Blues, Tell The Truth, Pearly Queen, No Face, No Name, No Number, Forever Man, Georgia On My Mind, Driftin’ – acoustic, Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out, Layla – acoustic version, Can’t Find My Way Home, Split Decision, Little Wing, Voodoo Chile, Cocaine
Encore: Dear Mr. Fantasy [via Where’s Eric?]
Clapton and Winwood continue their tour on Friday in Philadelphia.
