Sound: Eric Clapton sounded amazing it was like a dream come true hearing on that stage. Eric used his custom shop Eric Clapton strat, and for the sit down part of it Eric used a sig Martin acoustic. He played his amazing sound through a Fender '57 Twin amp (sounded great), He also used Vox V847 wah pedal, with a Boss TR-2 Tremlo pedal. Clapton sounded like a dream the sound was so good it blew me away and I'm sure it amazed the rest of the crowd, the feeling in the air was so amazing. // 10

Overall Impression: The show was part of the world tour 2006/2007, it was in a Australia, in Melbourne, at the Rod Laver Arena, the dat eof te show was 3 feb 2007 the first show he has done it melbourne for like 20 18 years. I don't remember the support band but I didn't like them much, their timing and their sound was of but that probaly was the nerves. The show was so amazing I loved it all you can6t hate anything about it. I was in Gold seating and my ticket cost $200 dollars the show was worth every cent I also brought $300 dollars worth of merchandise. The whole show was unforgettable it was the best momment of my whole life. I would defintaly go again if Clapton came to Melbourne again and if their was another major concert some where in the world I would hope I could go. // 10
