The World's No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band will be making a welcome return to The Maltings on Friday 12 May after a gap of seven years.
Classic Clapton features front-man Mike Hall who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too!
The band was formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne long before the term “tribute band” was invented. In the past 32 years they have become one of the best-loved bands on Tyneside. Tyne Tees Television made a documentary about them called “Cover Their Tracks”. The programme was shown in August 2000 and received rave reviews, leading to national recognition.
Classic Clapton comprises 4 excellent musicians who stunningly recreate Slowhand's electrifying stage performances. The whole of Eric Claptons's illustrious career is covered including Cream, The Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos and the solo years.
The band has toured throughout the UK and Europe including numerous sell-out shows. They have performed at The Royal Festival Hall and Glastonbury Festival where they were a major success. They have played in Estonia, Spain, Holland & France numerous times and in 2009 & 2016 they even toured India.
This will be their sixth visit to The Maltings. However, their last performance in Berwick was in 2010. Fans are therefore advised to book early for their next appearance.
