The world's number one Eric Clapton tribute band will be making a welcome return to The Stables, celebrating 38 years on the road!
Classic Clapton features front-man Mike Hall who not only looks like Eric, but 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 38 years they have become something of a rock institution.
Classic Clapton comprises four 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. They have played numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia,Holland and France. In 2009 and 2016 they toured India. In 2017 they appeared in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
This will be their ninth visit to The Stables. Their concerts are usually sold out so fans are advised to book early for their next appearance.
The show is a two-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.
