Performing Eric Clapton’s classic songs including Wonderful Tonight, Tears in Heaven, Crossroads, I Shot The Sheriff, Cocaine, Lay Down Sally and of course Layla.
There will even be an ‘unplugged’ segment…so surely a concert not to be missed by any Clapton fan.
The band was formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne long before the term ‘tribute band’ was invented, and named themselves After Midnight after Eric Clapton’s first solo hit.
In guitar/vocalist Mike Hall, they have a frontman who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too. In the past 33 years Classic Clapton has become something of a rock institution.
Classic Clapton comprises four excellent musicians: Mike Hall (lead vocals/guitar), Paul Warren (keyboards/backing vocals), Danny Davison (drums) and Dave Robson (bass guitar/backing vocals).
Dave is a former member of chart band Geordie, and was with them at the time Brian Johnson left to join AC/DC.
Frontman Mike was born in Durham and keyboards player Paul was born in Middlesbrough.
