Eric Clapton has played a whole lot of venues -- but New York's Lincoln Center hasn't been among them. Until now. Clapton has just announced a series of April dates with Wynton Marsalis. Dubbed "Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton Play the Blues," the shows will include a seven-piece band drawn from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Opening night (April 7) will be a private fundraiser, but the shows on April 8 and 9th will be open to the public. Marsalis is a guest artist on the guitarist's current album, Clapton. Ahead of the New York shows, Clapton is doing a run of West Coast dates, beginning Feb. 25.
