McLachlan solves the

Somebody had better tell agents
Mulder and Scully about Sarah
McLachlan before she strikes again.
The bodies of enraptured fans are piling
up in tour cities across the nation and
there doesn't look to be much sign of a
change. Simply put: The woman is hyp-
notizing America.

but surrender their wild applause.
With the dizzying display of flashy,
multi-colored stage-lights, the queen of

eyes. She tore through "Hold On"

The final episode of
"Seinfeld" - famously about
nothing at all except laughs-
was taped Wednesday night.
The show is going out on top,
still television's No. I comedy
and the centerpiece of NBC's
powerhouse Thursday night line-
The hourlong finale, which will
air on May 14, was being handled
under top-secret conditions remi-
niscent of the "Who Shot J.R.?"
episode of "Dallas."
A VIP crowd was expected to
watch some scenes, but the end-
ing will be filmed without an
audience. Those involved with the
show were asked to sign confi-
dentiality agreements, and scripts
were kept from actors and NBC
"It's surreal if you're an actor.
You don't know what you're going
to be doing," John O'Hurley, who
plays catalog guru J. Peterman,
told the Los Angeles Times.
"We're just told what to do."
Supposed leaks about the end-
ing -- one of which had Jerry and
his pals ending up in Los Angeles
-- were dismissed by producers
as inaccurate.

The finale was written by Larry
David, who created the show with
its star, Jerry Seinfeld.
Despite an offer to raise his pay
from $1 million to an estimated
$5 million per episode next sea-
son, Seinfeld decided to end the

the same kind of peak we've been

Critics had complained the
quality of the writing had slipped
recently. But the audience appeal
of "Seinfeld" has remained
strong to the end - as has its
financial value to NBC.
The network sold two 30-sec-
ond commercials on the final
episode for a record $2 million
each. The old record for the most
expensive ad time on television
was set in January, when NBC
sold a Super Bowl half-minute for
$1.3 million.

Clapton delivers 'Wonderful' performance
By Ryan Malkin
For the Daily
What do you get when combine amaz-
ing lyrics, wicked guitar skills and pres-
tige? The answer: Eric Clapton.
This living legend took the stage
Wednesday night at the Palace of
Auburn Hills. Finding the seats in the
slow-moving middle-aged crowd took

As soon as the spot lights hit Clapton,
his presence was felt. Clad in a black
suit, this legend opened with the hit "My
Father's Eyes," off his recent release,
Clapton was backed up by a 10-piece
orchestra, three other guitarists, a bass,
one keyboardist, an organ player, drum-
mer and three back-up singers. Needless
to say, the stage was full, yet there was
plenty of room to view this guitar hero in
his finest setting.
Once "Pilgrim," the title track of of his
latest release, began to play, the full spec-
