The setlist covered songs from throughout Cream and Blind Faith’s career, but of course, kicked off with a performance of Sunshine of Your Love. Take a look at Clapton, along with bassist Roger Waters, performing the song above.
Speaking to the crowd, Clapton introduced the memorial gig: “I called him Peter Edward,” he said, “I think he’s here somewhere and he’ll be playing music for you tonight and we’re going to help him along. He was a scoundrel, but I loved him and he loved me and that was that. I saw some people get the rough edge of his tongue, but I never did and I feel blessed. That’s why I’m doing this. I miss him.”
Other guests present included Roger Waters, Nile Rodgers, Ron Wood, Steve Winwood and Paul Carrack, along with Ginger Baker’s son Kofi Baker. Other than a brief reunion tour this is the first time Clapton has played many Cream songs in quite a while. Some more of the guest-packed performances are below, including Can’t Find My Way Home and White Room.
