The Beck-Clapton collaboration will undoubtedly be one of the must see shows of this decade, where the artists 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. 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 and have quickly followed suit with the U.S. and Canadian dates.
U.S. audiences recently saw Jeff Beck's guitar mastery at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 25th anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden. Beck's 40 minute set with guests such as Sting, Buddy Guy and Billy Gibbons along with a blistering rendition of "Superstition" in Stevie Wonder's set received strong critical acclaim.
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.
