Unless you were lucky enough to see a live band in the very early part of 2020, you likely will have gone the whole year without going to a gig at all – and let's face it, watching concerts at home is just not the same.


Well, with a somewhat optimistic eye, venues and stars are starting to announce comeback shows for 2021 so, all being well, we should not have to wait too long into next year to get the live music scene up and running again.

Little Mix, for example, have already announced they have a tour ready to go, and now the one and only Eric Clapton will be stepping out in front of a crowd to belt out some of his beloved hits.

So if you are a fan, now is your chance to hear such classics as I Shot the Sheriff, Wonderful Tonight, Layla, Tears of Heaven and many more.

When are the Eric Clapton gigs?

Eric is set to take to the stage again in May 2021 for three nights of shows at The Royal Albert Hall - 14th, 17th and 18th May to be precise!
