It’s the year of the guitar masters! Eric Clapton, Joe Satriani, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Jeff Beck are just a part of the incredible collection of guitarists performing around the US (and beyond) this winter.
The guitar legend Jeff Beck who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, once as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992, and then as a solo artist in 2009, recently won his fifth Grammy award in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category for a version of the Beatles’ “Day in the Life”.
Currently Jeff Beck tour continues with Eric Clapton. The two guitar icons have both been a part of the British rock band The Yardbirds, but not at the same time. They started their collaboration in 2008 when Beck invited Clapton to join him for a series of gigs in London. A year later they got together for a few shows in Japan and this year they kicked the Eric Clapton US four month tour starting with a dazzling show at the O2 Arena in London.
Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton each perform a set with their own band before doing a joint set. The duo will make a stop in New York, Montreal and Toronto.
Beck will be performing songs from his new album, “Emotion & Commotion,” which is to be released in the middle of April. The 65-year-old Beck showed what he’s made of when he performed in London accompanied by a large string section and his new touring quartet including whirlwind drummer Narada Michael Walden and bassist Rhonda Smith.
Among the songs Beck chose for his show at the O2 Arena were his interpretation of Benjamin Britten’s "Corpus Christi Carole," "People Get Ready," "Big Block," "Hammerhead," and the Irish "Elegy for Dunkirk," with the stunning violin part performed by Sharon Corr.
The combined talent of Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton is probably the hottest combination this season. Jeff Beck Concerts Tickets are already on sale and are selling quite quickly. Beck is also to tour solo in the UK in October hitting the Bournemouth BIC, Brighton Centre, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Glasgow Clyde Auditorium, Manchester Apollo, Sheffield City Hall, Bristol Colston Hall, Cardiff St David’s Hall and London Royal Albert Hall. His tour will also visit the US and Canada as well as Australasia.

   Looks like one, but just can't deny his prowess. Had this discussion a few months ago. We all love him, but I'm sure I can find all of his tour info on some site? Mmm, fried spam. Haven't had that in years. Makes me want to get up & fry some bologna...
