Eric Clapton & Jeff Beck: Two Special Concerts In Japan

On 21 and 22 February, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck will perform two shows together at Saitama Super Arena in Japan. It is the first-time the two men have appeared together in their storied musical careers on a double-bill of this nature. Information on the format of the concerts is currently not available.

Over the years, both Eric Clapton ahd Jeff Beck have shared the stage at a number of "one-offs" including The Secret Policeman's Ball for Amnesty International (1981) and the ARMS Concert at London's Royal Albert Hall in 1983. Jeff Beck also was a guest performer at both of Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festivals in 2004 and 2007. Most recently, Eric returned the favour by joining Jeff on stage at his run of shows at Ronnie Scott's Club in London in November 2007.

Both musicians will be on solo tours of Japan during February 2009. These two special concerts at the Saitama Super Arena will be their only joint appearances.
