The Royal Albert Hall’s most prolific living performer, music icon Eric Clapton has brought his total number of appearances on our stage to a whopping 208, with three shows on 22, 24 and 25 May 2017. In addition to this incredible achievement, this run of shows saw Clapton awarded France’s highest cultural honour…

In top form as ever, the legendary guitarist stunned the sold-out crowds with two hours of his some of his best-loved music, including I Shot The Sheriff, Bell Bottom Blues and Cocaine.

Eric Clapton is an icon of the Royal Albert Hall stage. Boasting a staggering record of 208 performances on this now familiar stage, it’s no wonder that he once likened playing at the Hall to “playing in my front room”!

And it wasn’t just the fans in the auditorium who were impressed – before taking to the stage for his final show of the run on 25 May, this deserving musician was giving the huge accolade of Commander in the Order of Arts and Letters by French Ambassador to the United Kingdom Sylvie Bermann! Congratulations Eric!
