Eric Clapton announces only U.S. concerts coming in 2024 will be in Southern California

Eric Clapton, the only musician inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame three times, will perform a Southern California mini-tour in October. These will be his only U.S. concert dates for the remainder of 2024.

Following a series of September concerts in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, the English guitar legend and his band will kick off their three-city California visit with an Oct. 8 concert at Pechanga Arena San Diego. It will be followed by an Oct. 10 show at Acrisure Arena in Palm Springs and an Oct. 12 performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Ticket information appears below.

Clapton’s Oct. 8 concert will feature an opening set by fellow guitarist and singer Jimmie Vaughan. The show will mark Clapton’s first San Diego performance since a 2007 concert at what was then known as iPayOne Center and is now Pechanga Arena.

That 2007 concert was recorded for Clapton’s double album, “Live in San Diego.” Clapton’s bassist, then and now, is Nathan East.

“Live in San Diego” includes several songs featuring singer-songwriter J.J. Cale, who died in 2013. A longtime northern San Diego County resident, Cale was a major influence on Clapton, with whom he recorded the Grammy Award-winning 2006 album, “The Road to Escondido,” on which East is also featured.

Pechanga Arena opened in 1966 as the San Diego Sports Arena. Clapton’s 1968 concert at the same venue with Cream, his pioneering blues-rock power trio. The group’s nine-song performance is documented on the four-CD set, “Cream — Goodbye Tour Live 1968,” which was released in 2020.
