Eric Clapton is joining forces with a multitude of prominent musicians to pay tribute to the iconic guitarist Jeff Beck, who sadly passed away at the age of 78 on January 10th, 2023 due to bacterial meningitis. The commemorative concerts are scheduled for May 22nd and 23rd at the renowned Royal Albert Hall in London.
It has recently been announced that Joe Perry from Aerosmith and Ronnie Wood from The Rolling Stones will also be performing at the shows. The lineup already boasts an impressive array of musicians including Doyle Bramhall, Gary Clark Jr, Johnny Depp, Billy Gibbons, Imelda May, John McLaughlin, Robert Randolph, Olivia Safe, Rod Stewart, Joss Stone, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, and members of the Jeff Beck Band – Rhonda Smith, Anika Nilles, and Robert Stevenson.
Unsurprisingly, both concerts have sold out. All surplus funds raised during the performances will be generously donated to the Folly Wildlife Rescue based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
