The World's No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band will be making a welcome return to Artrix - their first appearance in the Midlands since 2015
CLASSIC CLAPTON 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 upon Tyne 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. 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 they appeared in Mumbai. They were invited back for 3 more concerts in India in 2016. In March 2017 they appeared in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
This will be the band’s fifth visit to Artix. Their previous performances have been a great success. Fans are therefore advised to book early for their next appearance.
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.
