The World’s No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band will be making a welcome return to Middlesbrough Theatre in May 2018.
The band features front-man Mike Hall who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too! They were formed in 1985 in Newcastle long before the term “tribute band” was invented. In the past 33 years they have become something of a rock institution.
The band comprises 4 excellent musicians who stunningly recreate Slowhand’s electrifying stage performances. Front-man Mike was born in Durham, keyboards player Paul was born in Middlesbrough.
The whole of EC’s illustrious career is covered including Cream, The Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos and the solo years.
CLASSIC CLAPTON have toured throughout the UK including numerous sell-out shows. They have appeared at The Royal Festival Hall and Glastonbury Festival where they were a major success. In the past few years they have played numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia, Holland & France. In 2009 & 2016 they toured India. In March 2017 they appeared in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
This will be their second appearance at Middlesbrough Theatre. Their first appearance in 2015 was a great success. Fans are therefore advised to book early.
The show is a 2-hour journey through the music of Eric Clapton including all of his hits – Wonderful Tonight, I Shot The Sheriff, Lay Down Sally, Crossroads, Tears in Heaven, Layla and even an Unplugged segment.
