Legendary guitarist comes to Brazil in October

Exactly ten years after his last visit to Brazil, Eric Clapton will return to perform in the country. The Englishman, one of the greatest guitarists of all time, will perform on October 6th in Porto Alegre, on October 9th in Rio and finally, on October 12th in Sao Paulo at the Morumbi stadium.

The last time Clapton performed in Brazil was in 2001, coincidentally also in October, where he recorded and produced the CD and DVD "One More Car, One More Rider".

A Brief History
 Eric Clapton started his career in the 1960s. His meteoric success inspired a very big fan of his, who wrote "Clapton is God" on a wall in London. After this episode, the guitarist was dubbed “the guitar god.”

Aside from his solid solo career, Clapton was also part of a couple of bands, including Yardbirds, which also included Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck, and a band called Cream and Derek and The Dominos. All of these bands were from 1960s and the early 1970s. During the same period, he was part of important recordings such as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," one of the most famous Beatles songs.

Among the successes of the repertoire are songs like Clapton's "Layla, " "Cocaine" and "Wonderful Tonight. " His last album was released in September 2010 (the 20th of his carrier).
