Eric Clapton’s 50th anniversary tour, in support of his new album, Old Sock, is off and running.

He got things going Thursday night at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, turning in a 22-song set. In addition to such staples as “I Shot the Sheriff,” “Layla” and “Crossroads,” he broke out “Hello Old Friend” to start things off, as well as songs off the new album. He also turned the microphone over to keyboardist Paul Carrack, who sang lead on three songs — “Tempted,” his hit with Squeeze; “How Long,” his hit with Ace; and the night’s last number, Joe Cocker’s “High Time We Went,” which was co-written by Cocker and Clapton’s other keyboardist, Chris Stainton.
