Eric Clapton began the year by mounting a tour of the Far East and Middle East, which may be one of his last visits to those regions if he keeps to his plan to retire from the road when he reaches his 70 birthday next year. Now, a documentary and concert film focusing on the guitar legend's early-2014 trek is set to be released on DVD and Blu-ray in the fall.
Due out on November 4, Planes, Trains and Eric takes an intimate look at Clapton both on and off the stage as he travels through various parts of Asia. The video boasts 13 full performances of various songs from throughout Slowhand's career, including "Crossroads," "I Shot the Sheriff," "Layla," "Wonderful Tonight," "Tears in Heaven" and "Cocaine." The flick also contains interviews with Clapton and his tour band's members, as well as footage from soundchecks and rehearsals, and candid scenes of the musicians traveling and enjoying their downtime.
Eric's backing band for the tour included ex- Squeeze / Ace / Mike and the Mechanics singer/keyboardist Paul Carrack , drummer Steve Gadd , bassist Nathan East and keyboardist Chris Stainton .
Earlier this week, Clapton's star-studded new tribute album to his late friend and musical mentor JJ Cale , The Breeze , debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, Eric currently has no confirmed upcoming tour dates on his schedule.
