Eric Clapton - Key To The Highway (Live at The Royal Albert Hall)

Clapton has a strong recent showing at the Royal Albert Hall, having been key player during two tribute concerts for Jeff Beck held at the venue in May.

A collaboration between the two guitarist's guitarists on 'Moon River' recorded shortly before Beck's passing was also released last month.

He also played a series of shows at the same venue back in 2019

Clapton will also perform at his own Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in Los Angeles this September.
