A new film recorded during Eric Clapton’s 2015 run of shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall will be in cinemas next month, ahead of its release on DVD by Eagle Rock. ‘Eric Clapton: Live At The Royal Albert Hall’ will be screened in cinemas worldwide beginning on September 14. You can watch the trailer here.
The film is produced by Examination Productions and Eagle Rock, and brought to screens by Arts Alliance. Cinema listings and tickets will be available soon here.
The film also features documentary material on the great guitarist, presented by Paul Gambaccini and including interviews with members of Clapton’s current band, such as Paul Carrack, Andy Fairweather Lowe and Chris Stainton.
The seven shows took place at Clapton’s beloved Albert Hall between May 14 and 23 this year, and followed his two nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden early that month. All of the concerts marked his 70th birthday at the end of March.
The Albert Hall shows took Clapton’s total of performances there to 205, dating back to his debut at the venue as a member of the Yardbirds. They took part in the filming of a BBC pop show there in December 1964, on a bill with Brenda Lee, the Miracles and others. That running total includes 178 as the headline artist and many others in all-star events such as Cream’s farewell and reunion shows and the tribute concert for George Harrison.
