Nearly 10 years to the day that Eric Clapton held an all-star gig at San Diego's iPayOne Center – a concert that was immortalized as a live album this year – the guitarist will release the DVD/Blu-ray of the March 15th, 1997 performance this spring.
Live In San Diego With Special Guest JJ Cale features Clapton performing alongside Cale on five tracks, including Clapton's Cale-penned hits "After Midnight" and "Cocaine," and Robert Cray on "Crossroads." Clapton's band at the time also featured guitarists Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall II.
Clapton and Cale's San Diego performance came less than a year after the two artists collaborated on 2006's Road to Escondido. "This is the realization of what may have been my last ambition, to work with the man whose music has inspired me for as long as I can remember," Clapton said of Cale at the time.
Live In San Diego With Special Guest JJ Cale is available to preorder now through Clapton's site and will arrive March 10th. Fans can also watch Clapton's rendition of "Wonderful Tonight" from the San Diego show, which was unveiled when the live album arrived in September.
In addition to the concert, the DVD and Blu-ray includes bonus footage of Clapton and Cale rehearsing "Anyway the Wind Blows" and "Who Am I Telling You?"
