Eric Clapton

Clapton has been announced as the fourth headliner of the annual British Summer Time – Hyde Park concert series. Each summer, the festival takes place over two successive weekends at London’s iconic Hyde Park, with each day headlined by a different world-famous performer.

Previous editions of the festival have seen acts like Green Day, The Killers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Stevie Wonder, The Who, Taylor Swift, Arcade Fire, Black Sabbath, Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones and more perform.

Headliners announced for the 2018 edition so far are Roger Waters, Michael Bublé and Bruno Mars. Eric Clapton will headline the festival on Sunday, July 8 and will be supported by Santana, Steve Winwood (Clapton’s former bandmate in Blind Faith) and Gary Clark Jr. Talking about the upcoming concert, his first since playing the venue in 2008, Clapton said, “I have happy memories of performing in Hyde Park in the past,” says Eric, “and I’m really looking forward to playing there again – the whole atmosphere is very special.”
