Classic Clapton

Classic Clapton was formed in December 1985 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!

They have performed throughout the UK including concerts at The Royal Festival Hall, London and a triumphant appearance at Glastonbury Festival in 2002. In the past few years they have toured Europe including Ireland, Spain, Estonia, Holland and France. In 2009 they appeared in Mumbai. A 10,000 mile round-trip for 1 concert, but it was a great experience. They were invited back for 3 more gigs in January 2016.

CLASSIC CLAPTON are doing more north east gigs in the near future. They will be performing authentic versions of all the Clapton Classics including Crossroads, Sunshine of Your Love, Hideaway, Badge, Before You Accuse Me, Cocaine and of course Layla! The whole of Clapton’s illustrious career will be covered including The Bluesbreakers, Cream, The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos and the solo years. There will even be an “UNPLUGGED” segment.
