Eric Clapton

Bruce Wheeler

First visit

My #1 bucket list was to see Eric Clapton at Royal Albert Hall. On May 15, 2019, that dream came true. Tickets went on sale about 4 AM Phoenix time. When I was placed in the queue, I was 3,000 something. I didn't think I had a chance at tickets. We had decent seats on the left side of the stage. The night was amazing. It seemed like he was playing only for me. Every song he played was a favorite. A tear was shed when he played "Tears in Heaven". For I, too, have lost a son. I know that if he had been alive, he would have been the person that went to the concert w/ me. So that was probably the highlight of the entire evening for me. The crowd was amazing as was the building. The next day, we took a tour of RAH. We discovered how truly amazing the building and its history really is. The two day experience is one of my highlights in life.
