CAN FIND MY WAY HOME


"On the heels of a stunning collaboration at the Chicago Crossroads Guitar Festival in July of 2007 and after much speculation, Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton announced today three eagerly anticipated concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden. In what will be one of the must see shows of this decade Winwood and Clapton will perform together February 25th, 26th, 28th, 2008." (via where's eric)

Both Winwood and Clapton have long and prestigious musical careers with countless honors and awards to their names. Their musical paths connected in 1969 with the formation of Blind Faith, a group that pioneered the fusion of rock and blues into tremendous studio and stage success. Despite critical and popular acclaim, the band was short-lived with only one album and a brief 1969 tour that debuted July 12 at Madison Square Garden and ended August 24th in Hawaii. Since that final show, Winwood and Clapton have remained friends, but have only performed together a few times over the years for an occasional song at a charity event. The 2008 Madison Square Garden shows will be the first full Winwood-Clapton concerts in almost 40 years. The duo has said that no set list has been discussed and they will spend rehearsal time deciding which songs will be featured at these shows.

Steve Winwood is currently signed to Columbia Records and will have a new album out in early 2008. Eric Clapton's current album Complete Clapton is available now on Reprise Records.

These shows will be produced by Ron Delsener for Live Nation. Tickets will be available in advance to American Express cardmembers.
