The blues-rock guitar deity keeps on string-bending, celebrating his seventieth birthday with a run of Albert Hall shows

Slowhand returns for four nights of gruff blues-rock classics, to celebrate his seventieth birthday and 50 years since the first of his umpteen appearances at the Albert Hall. 'Clapton is God' was the slogan back in the ’60s, and although he's far from infallible, it is starting to look like he might just carry on forever.
