I saw them within a week or so of your show, at the Key Arena (Now Climate Pledge Arena, of course.) It was supposedly a retirement tour, except he never retired. Amazing how many great songs they played that night.

The opener was some hot shot named Derek Trucks...

That would have been August 4, 2001, at the Key Arena. At the time, Clapton said that that 2001 "Reptile World Tour" (February 3 to December 15, 2001) would be his last major world tour. Of course, he went on another major world tour in 2011 to support his "Clapton" album.
