Clapton is set to kick off a run of shows in Japan and the UK prior to his North American tour. Following a six-night stint at the famed Budokan indoor arena in Tokyo starting 15 April, Clapton will play two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 22 and 23 May as part of a tribute concert to the late Jeff Beck.
