Three-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Eric Clapton is coming to Tampa’s Amalie Arena in September.

He’ll be joined by special guest Jimmie Vaughan at 8 p.m. Sept. 25.

Clapton’s stop in Tampa is part of a series of U.S. concert dates announced Monday. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Clapton made headlines recently when he and Van Morrison collaborated on the antilockdown song Stand and Deliver. And in a recent interview conducted by Oracle Films, Clapton outlined his skepticism about the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. He also expressed concerns about what he viewed as “brainwashing” when it came to the information surrounding vaccination, and cited unsubstantiated claims of vaccines affecting fertility.

Besides Vaughan as special guest, Clapton’s band for the Tampa show will include Doyle Bramhall II, Paul Carrack, Nathan East, Sonny Emory, Steve Gadd and Chris Stainton with Sharon White and Katie Kissoon on backing vocals.

Tickets are priced at $55.25-$391.25 at ticketmaster.com.
