The brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un reportedly attended two Eric Clapton concerts in London this week.

Reports say that the elder brother of the country's ruler, Kim Jong-Chul flew to the UK to see Clapton's shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Footage has emerged of a man resembling the individual arriving at the west London venue on Wednesday (May 20).

Various videos show what is thought to be Kim Jong-Chul in a leather jacket and sunglasses, surrounded by security guards. At one point, a member of his security staff is seen trying to block photographers from taking pictures.

A BBC News reporter claims that Kim Jong-Chul also attended Clapton's show on Thursday night (May 21), stating, "He was just like any other fan, but there were officials all around him. They were obviously not Clapton fans, and looked really out of place. But he was having a great time, singing along to all the words."

Kim Jong-Chul has been previously spotted at Eric Clapton concerts in Germany in 2006 and Singapore in 2011.







Eric Clapton recently paid tribute to late blues musician BB King, who passed away last week (May 14). Clapton said in a video message, "I want to thank my dear friend BB King for all the inspiration and encouragement he gave me as a player over the years, and for the friendship that we enjoyed."
