Eric Clapton Tribute
Eric Clapton Tribute the World's No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band featuring front-man Mike Hall will be appearing at a venue near you soon!
The band was formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne long before the term "tribute band" was invented, and named themselves ''After Midnight'' after Eric Clapton's first solo hit. Their ability to re-create Clapton's electrifying stage performances really caught the audience's imagination. In guitar/vocalist Mike Hall, the band possesses a front man who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too!
In 1999, Mike won a national look-alike competition held at Madam Tussauds in London. Mike has met Slowhand twice, and even received a message of encouragement from the guitar maestro (written on a Concorde menu).
TYNE TEES TELEVISION were so impressed, they made a programme about them, called 'COVER THEIR TRACKS'. They filmed the band's concert at Newcastle Opera House in front of 600 ecstatic fans. It was shown in August 2000 and received rave reviews, leading to national recognition.
In 2001 they embarked on an extensive tour of UK Theatres. Since then, they have continued to perform throughout the UK and Europe including concerts at The Royal Festival Hall, London and a triumphant appearance at Glastonbury Festival in 2002. In the past few years they have performed numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia and Holland.
In July 2009 they appeared at St Andrews Auditorium in Mumbai. A 10,000 mile round-trip for 1 concert, but it was a great experience.
In the past 27 years Eric Clapton Tribute have become something of a rock institution.
Eric Clapton Tribute comprises 4 excellent musicians. They have released three albums.
Eric Clapton has been a major international star since the mid 1960's, when he revolutionised electric guitar playing with virtuoso performances in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. He has won an incredible 19 Grammies and is the only triple inductee into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of both The Yardbirds and Cream and also as a solo artist).
Eric Clapton's recent tours unfortunately have visited only a limited number of large UK arenas. If fans want to hear all of his hits performed in more intimate surroundings, they really should attend a Eric Clapton Tribute concert. They will be performing authentic versions of all the popular Clapton Classics including Wonderful Tonight, Tears in Heaven, Crossroads, Lay Down Sally, I Shot The Sheriff, Sunshine of Your Love, Cocaine and of course Layla!
The whole of Clapton's illustrious career will be covered including Cream, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Derek & The Dominos and the solo years. There will even be an "UNPLUGGED" segment.
