Classic Clapton, the World’s No.1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band featuring front-man Mike Hall will be making a welcome return to Sage Gateshead in April.
Performing all of Eric Clapton’s classic songs including ‘Wonderful Tonight’, ‘Tears in Heaven’, ‘Crossroads’, ‘I Shot The Sheriff’, ‘Cocaine’, ‘Lay Down Sally’ and of course Layla! There will even be an “unplugged” segment.
Classic Clapton comprises 4 excellent musicians; Mike Hall (lead vocals/guitar), Paul Warren (keyboards/ backing vocals), Danny Davison (drums) and Dave Robson (bass guitar /backing vocals).
In Mike Hall, the band possesses a front man who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too! In 1999, he won a national look-alike competition held at Madam Tussauds and even received a message of encouragement from the guitar maestro.
