THE WORLD’S number one Eric Clapton tribute band will be making a welcome return to Huntingdon Hall in Worcester next month.
The band, which is celebrating almost three decades on the road, features front-man Mike Hall who looks like Eric, and sings and plays guitar like him too.
Formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne long before the term ‘tribute band’ was invented, over the past 29 years they have become something of a rock institution.
The band comprises four excellent musicians who stunningly recreate Slowhand’s electrifying stage performances. The whole of Clapton’s illustrious career is covered including Cream, The Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos and the solo years. This two-hour journey through the music of Eric Clapton includes all his hits – Wonderful Tonight, I Shot the Sheriff, Lay Down Sally, Crossroads, Tears in Heaven, Layla and even an Unplugged segment.
The band has toured throughout the UK and Europe and has appeared at The Royal Festival Hall and Glastonbury Festival where they were a major success. In the past few years they have performed in Spain, Estonia, Holland and France, and in July 2009 they performed in Mumbai.
This will be their eighth visit to Huntingdon Hall.
The show takes place on Friday, November 7 at 8pm. Tickets cost £15 and are available from the box office on 01905 611427.
