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.
They called the tribute show "CLASSIC CLAPTON". 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.
This was a great concert - it sold out and apparently many people were turned away. There were quite a few Bollywood stars & celebrities in the audience. A 10,000 mile round-trip for 1 concert, but it was a great experience. In the past 25 years AFTER MIDNIGHT have become something of a rock institution. The band has released three albums. AFTER MIDNIGHT comprises 4 excellent musicians. 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 AFTER MIDNIGHT 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. NEARLY 2 HOURS OF CLASSIC CLAPTON Read more on Last.fm.
