The Music Of Cream hit the road to celebrate 50 years of parent band

The Music Of Cream

The Music of Cream have announced dates in the US and UK to mark the 50th anniversary of Cream's final concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 26, 1968. 

The band is made up of Ginger Baker’s son Kofi Baker, Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm Bruce and Eric Clapton’s nephew (by marriage) Will Johns. Will is also son of Led Zeppelin engineer Andy Johns. 

They'll tour the US and Canada before heading to the UK for four UK shows in November, kicking off in Glasgow before performing in Leamington Spa, London and Manchester. 

“We had such an amazing response to our first tour in Australia and New Zealand [where they were joined onstage by Glenn Hughes and Robben Ford] that we’ve spent some considerable time adding to the show,” says Bruce. “Now, we not only have this amazing legacy of music to play, but an opportunity to share some wonderful insights and stories with our audience… a backstage pass like no other, if you will.”

“We also have a few surprises in store that we know people are going to really respond to," says Baker. "We can’t wait to be on the road again playing these shows in the UK in November.”

Last year, Bruce told us, "We are absolutely not interested in playing it note for note, mimicking what has already been done. There are tribute acts that can do this already, but I think that misses the point of what this music was about in the first place. As my Dad said on more than one occasion, Cream were a Jazz band… it’s just they didn’t tell Eric!”
