In recent months, concerts of other rock legends such as The Who, Genesis, ELO by Jeff Lynne, and others, have been postponed and been rescheduled to 2021 or 2022 or canceled completely.

On March 24, 2021, Camp Clapton cited “advice from global health agencies and instructions from local government.” The European tour, first revealed on October 2, 2019, was scheduled to begin on May 29, 2020. It will now take place almost exactly two years later, in the spring of 2022.

In recent years, the classic rock legend, who turns 76 on March 30, has avoided a long string of dates, preferring to do a handful at a time.

When the original dates for 2020 were revealed, Clapton was expected to be joined again by musicians Nathan East (bass), Paul Carrack (keyboards), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Doyle Bramhall II (guitar) and backing vocals. Sharon White and Katie Kissoon.
