Only at The 02, London
Saturday, February 13, 2010

(London, UK) -- On the heels of a stunning collaboration in Tokyo, Japan last February and after much speculation, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton announced today an eagerly anticipated collaboration at the 02 Arena London on February 13, 2010. In what will be one of the must see shows of this decade Beck and Clapton will perform together and apart. The duo have shared the stage at Festivals and benefits previously, but the Japan shows at the Saitama Super Arena marked the first time they had shared the bill at a major arena. Both artists admitted to having a fantastic time on stage together and press gave rave reviews. The concerts were so spectacular for the musicians and fans alike, that the two decided to team up again at London’s prestigious 02 Arena.

‘Eric and I played together in Japan earlier this year and had a blast. Since then we have been in regular contact and talked about doing a similar show for our fans. Looking forward to the show in 2010,” said Jeff Beck.

“I’ve always considered Jeff Beck to be one of the finest guitar players around. He’s a friend, a great guy, and a truly gifted musician. We had such a fun time in Japan that it seemed natural to play together again,” said Eric Clapton.

Both Beck and Clapton have long and prestigious musical careers with countless honours and awards to their names. Beck has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice and Clapton is the only artist to be inducted three times. Their musical paths are linked together by the Yardbirds – a band that Clapton left in 1965 and his replacement, ironically, was Jeff Beck. Since those days, Beck and Clapton have remained friends, but have only performed together a few times over the years for an occasional song at a charity event. Now, more than 40 years after the Yardbirds disbanded, the two will join together on the same stage. The duo has said that no exact set list has been discussed but they plan to each do their own respective sets followed by a joint set that is expected to be longer than their first shows in Japan.

Jeff Beck’s recent release, Live at Ronnie Scotts DVD, has gone platinum in USA, Canada and Japan. Beck is currently recording his first studio album in five years in London with Trevor Horne and Steve Lipson producing. Eric Clapton’s recent release Crossroads Guitar Festival DVD has gone multi-platinum in the US. Clapton also just completed a sold-out North American tour with former Blind Faith band member Steve Winwood.

Yeah--they should definitely bring that show to the U.S. It would sort of surprise me if they didn't.

On another note--I realize Jeff Beck has no direct connection the the Allman Bros, but it would be the coolest if he ever jammed with them just once...

I'm hoping for a tour. EC did it with Winwood this year, so why not with Beck?

I only go the MSG under duress.

Very similar to the Japan shows, except shorter sets for Clapton and Beck, with longer
jam at end

So Beck's band will be the same. EC, you never now who will be available. or in band, but should be also similar.

Jeff should be joining Eric at R&R Hall of fame show next month in NY.

Tour next year won't be major tour, select dates so stay tuned. The 02 show will be a good barometer about waht to expect, and this could easy be a select world tour.

Also Crossroads III next year with a "few surprises".
Eric will be busy!!!!!

I like both but anyone else chuckle at the picture? One old guy dressed for 2009, the other somewhere between 1965 and 1970?

Note - I'm an old guy as well so it's okay
