Eric Clapton has announced a run of North American shows that will take place in September, featuring support from Jimmie Vaughan.
Clapton will start the tour in Pittsburgh on Sept. 8, followed by shows in Toronto, Canada, St. Louis, Mo., St. Paul, Minn. and Denver. This is the second time the guitarist has teamed up for a tour with Jimmie Vaughan, the older brother of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.

In April, Clapton will perform six nights at Budokan in Tokyo, followed by a pair of Jeff Beck tribute performances at London's Royal Albert Hall on May 22 and 23. Other confirmed London guests for that show include Rod Stewart, Billy Gibbons, former Allman Brothers Band member Derek Trucks, John McLaughlin, Joss Stone, Gary Clark Jr., Imelda May and Johnny Depp.
