Slowhand is back...

Eric Clapton has announced that he’s returning to Hyde Park next year for a huge British Summer Time Festival show.

The guitar icon, 72, will take to the Great Oak stage on Sunday July 8 for his first show in Hyde Park since 2008.

He’ll also be joined by an impressive support bill of Steve Winwood, Santana, and Gary Clark Jr.

Tickets for the huge show range from £65.00 for general admission to £249.95 for a Diamond Circle view. You can buy them here from 9AM on Friday December 1.

Amazon customers are also able to take advantage of a pre-sale from Wednesday 29 November at 9AM, which can be accessed here. 

“I have happy memories of performing in Hyde Park in the past,” Clapton said of the gig.

“I’m really looking forward to playing there again – the whole atmosphere is very special.”

Clapton’s show sees him take his place as the fourth headliner at next year’s series of British Summertime gigs, joining an already announced line up of Roger Waters, Michael Buble, and Bruno Mars.

Since launching in 2013, British Summer Time has seen some of the world’s biggest acts taking to the Hyde Park show, with the likes of The Killers, Justin Bieber, Green Day, Tom Petty and The Strokes previously playing their own headline shows.
