Eric Clapton will perform on May 26th in Connecticut at the exclusive Greenwich Town Party.

The event at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park, which last year saw Walter Becker's final performance with Steely Dan, has attracted such A-listers over the past seven years as John Fogerty, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, the Doobie Brothers, Santana, James Taylor, Paul Simon, and Buddy Guy.

Although tickets go on sale on April 5th and are priced at an affordable $85, seats are only available to "Greenwich residents, Greenwich business owners, and employees of Greenwich companies.”

So far, the Greenwich appearance is Clapton's only U.S. date on the books for 2018.
