Mike Hall and Adam Howells from CLASSIC CLAPTON will perform a rare acoustic concert based around Slowhand’s multi-million selling album ”Eric Clapton / unplugged” – Eric’s best-selling album ever.
Front-man Mike not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too! The band was formed in 1985 in Newcastle long before the term “tribute band” was invented. Mike and Adam both live locally.
CLASSIC CLAPTON has appeared at The Royal Festival Hall and Glastonbury Festival where they were a major success. They have played numerous concerts abroad including Spain, Estonia, Holland, France, India and Sri Lanka. The full band performed it’s final CLASSIC CLAPTON tribute show at Sage Gateshead in December 2023. However, Mike intends to continue with unplugged gigs in future.
This acoustic concert will include many of the best tracks from Eric’s unplugged album, including Tears in Heaven, Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out, Running on Faith, Old Love and of course Layla. The concert will also feature new acoustic versions of other Clapton Classics such as Wonderful Tonight, Lay Down Sally, Promises and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
The whole of Clapton’s illustrious career will be covered including Cream, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos and the solo years.
This will be their first ever performance at the Arts Centre. It will also be the only Classic Clapton show in the North East this year. Fans are therefore advised to book early. www.classic-clapton.com
