Story by Jack Foley

JUST days after he was confirmed as one of the headline acts for this summer’s Hard Rock Calling gigs in London’s Hyde Park in June, Eric Clapton has announced another massive date.

The guitar legend – aka Slowhand – is to perform at Harewood House, in Yorkshire, on June 29 – 24 hours after he headline’s the Hyde Park gig.

Support will come from Robert Randolph & The Family Band and tickets go on sale on Monday, February 4.

Clapton is enjoying a busy period of late, having released a definitive best of compilation before Christmas and a popular autobiography.

His summer concerts promise to encompass the length and breadth of his career, from his days with Cream to his solo material and passion for the blues.
