Eric Clapton To Play Shows at MSG
originally published: 03/12/2018
(NEW YORK, NY) -- Legendary guitarist Eric Clapton will return to the area with three shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The shows run from Saturday, October 6 to Monday, October 8. These shows will feature Clapton with his band: Nathan East (bass), Sonny Emory (drums), Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Paul Carrack (organ/keyboards), Sharon White (vocals), Sharlotte Gibson (vocals). The concerts will also feature special guests Gary Clark Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan.
The history of rock and roll would be completely different without Eric Clapton. He first introduced himself to the world as a member of The Yardbirds. Only a member for 18 months, he left the band after it moved more towards commercial sounds rather than the blues. From that point on, every move he made would become a fixture in rock and roll history and still played daily on radio stations across the world decades later.
Following his time in The Yardbirds, Clapton joined John Mayall's Bluesbreakers; teamed up with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker to form Cream; founded Blind Faith (arguably rock's first supergroup) with Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker, and Rick Grech; formed Derek and the Dominos with Jim Gordon, Carl Radle, and Bobby Whitlock; and launched a successful solo career.
Some of his most famous songs include "Layla", "White Room", "Sunshine of Your Love", "Bell Bottom Blues", "Wonderful Tonight", "Lay Down Sally", "Cocaine", "Tears In Heaven", "She's Waiting", and his cover of "I Shot The Sheriff".
Clapton is a three-time inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; being inducted as a solo artist and as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream.

After a limited global tour in 2014, Clapton marked his 70th birthday shows in 2015 at London’s Royal Albert Hall and New York’s Madison Square Garden, and a series of shows in 2016 at the Budokan in Tokyo.

Bach's Brandenburg Concertos With Symphony in C You know the old joke: If it ain’t Baroque, don’t fix it? Well, put away those tools, dear reader. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos ARE Baroque, so no fixing necessary.
This Saturday, December 1, Symphony in C is performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 2 through 6 at the Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts. Officially presented in 1721, these collective works are considered to be some of the finest orchestral compositions of the Baroque era (generally 1600 to 1750). These six concertos are among the most recorded, performed and beloved works by Bach. – And that’s J.S. Bach, for those of you keeping score at home. There are a LOT of Bachs.
