The Music of Cream 50th Anniversary Tour

This show has passed

Cream was one of rock's first supergroups -- made up of Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton. Now, the bloodlines of that hallowed trio come together to pay tribute to Cream’s reign over the psychedelic late 1960s. Kofi Baker (Ginger’s son), Malcom Bruce (Jack’s son) and Will Johns team up to continue the legacy of the world’s greatest power trio, known for such rock classics as “Sunshine of Your Love,” "Strange Brew," “White Room” and “Crossroads.”

Background

Ginger Baker. Jack Bruce. Eric Clapton.

Cream was a chemical explosion like no other, the blueprint for every supergroup to follow and the heavy blues precursor to Hendrix, Zeppelin and so much more.

Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream’s legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s.

After their successful inaugural Music of Cream 50th Anniversary Tour in Australia and New Zealand in 2017,

Kofi BAKER (son of Ginger) and Malcolm BRUCE (son of Jack) unite with Will Johns (Eric’s Nephew* and son of Zeppelin/ Stones/ Hendrix engineer Andy) to unleash the lightning that electrified a generation in an extensive World Tour.

Feel the fire and the freedom of “Spoonful”, “Strange Brew”, “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room”, “Crossroads” and “Badge”  — Listen to the stories and see them interplay with their mentors on the big screen  — master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit, celebrating an extraordinary legacy.

Don’t miss this once-In-a-lifetime concert salute to the most innovative and explosive supergroup of all time, in the hands of those that knew them best.
