Yeah it was well worth the 6 hour wait! I thought the show was awsome. The new band seemed confortable together, especially with the new members ( Doyle, Derek and steve Jordan). The highlights of the show were probably
'old love' with Robert Cray (who did a great first part) and 'i shot the sheriff' among other great ones. Chris Stainton and Tim Carmon were also amazing on the keys.
Steve Jordan had a nice new groove to 'cocaine' and 'after midnight' (the train goove) and i have to say it sounded weird at first but after getting used to it it fit perfectly. There is so much charizma and feeling in Jordan's playing he can makes a simple rock groove so much more interesting than it is.
Although i'm not a big Clapton fan, i can honnestly say it was one of the best concerts i've seen.
I'll post a link to the videos i took as soon as i put them together. I didnt video the whole thing but a lot of it is down.
