Just a reminder, there are still seats available for tonight. I saw Clapton @RBC in 2006 and it was a great show.

RBC Center - Eric Clapton

I didn't know he was coming until yesterday. I saw that Roger Daughtry is opening. It's going to be an awesome show.

I'm going - and can't wait! I got my tickets first day. Floor. Awesome. I'm hoping that traffic isn't going to be horrible like it was for U2. We are leaving early - as in soon - and just planning on tail gating for a while.

Wanted to buy tickets for Tom Petty today @ Walnut Creek. $125!!!! Add in the stupid $24.50 fee from Live Nation and it's ridiculous.

Roger Daltrey was incredible. He was so much better than what we had seen at the Superbowl. His voice was strong and he had a LOT of energy. I've always been a Who fan, and he didn't disappoint.

Clapton is... well... Clapton. He's always phenomenal. He played a really good set - finishing up with Crossroads. Wonderful!

I must say that the staff of RBC Center did a great job, too. The place was just about sold out and there didn't seem to be much of a hitch to anything. Getting in and out of the parking was easy and (relatively) quick. I loved that they didn't let people just flood the floor - really enforced the ticket to a seat policy and weren't brutish or mean about it. Great venue and handled well.

Outstanding show. Roger Daltrey really surprised me and got the crowd moving. Clapton was all business and no chatter. We had seats 7 rows up from the corner of the stage and it was amazing watching his hands work.

Except everyone was stuck going into Edwards Mill Rd while Blue Ridge was empty. And by empty, I mean three cars on the exit ramp and no wait to get to the lot. We sat in gridlock for 10 minutes before realizing we could bi-pass everyone and park in a couple of minutes. Bizarre. Never seen anything like it for a show or hockey game.

WTF, I had no idea he was in town. WOW, I'm out of touch.

I saw Clapton in Charlotte in 1989, it was his (I think 40th) birthday that night, and the show litterally changed how I think about live music. I'll never forget it.

Sorry I missed this one.

Where we parked, we really had no problem. Now - I did get there early to avoid any problems or back ups like there was with U2.... wasn't taking any chances. I made sure to park at the bottom of the parking lot, facing out, so that we could just pull right out. Didn't have a problem with that. Maybe it's where we were. I don't know.
