 ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- JVC will sponsor Eric

Clapton's U.S. tour this spring, the consumer electronics company announced today. The 20-city tour will kick off April 25 at Reunion Arena in Dallas.
 His place in rock history assured by his work with such groups as Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek and the Dominos, Clapton is now reaching a whole new generation of rock fans. The singer/guitarist has two albums currently on Billboard's Top 200 Albums Chart -- the soundtrack to the motion picture "Rush," and "24 Nights," recorded live in London.
 "Clapton is truly a living legend, and we are very excited to be officially associated with his tour," said Kevin Weinhoeft, national sales and marketing manager of JVC Company of America's Hi-Fi Division. "Following the success of 'JVC Rocks' with CSN, the Doobie Brothers and Bonnie Raitt the past two years, we see our continued involvement in rock as a great complement to our established success in the JVC Jazz Festival."
