Jack Bruce & His Big Blues Band + support

One of the true giants of modern music, Jack Bruce was the vocalist and bass player in the iconic sixties blues rock band, Cream, and composer of many of their classic hits, including White Room, Sunshine Of Your Love, and I Feel Free, but before that he played in John Mayall¹s Blues Breakers and the classic Blues Incorporated.

Hailed as one of the most powerful vocalists and greatest bassists of his time, his improvisational skill and utterly unique, free-spirited approach to composition and performance would forever change electric music. His pioneering, full-toned, free-wheeling playing on the electric bass revolutionised the way the instrument is used and influenced the playing of countless bassists to today, including Sting and Jaco Pastorius.

His work with bands such as Cream and the Tony Williams Lifetime, as well as his solo material, unlocked the doors to the pent-up energy of a new approach to the art of sound, breaking the barriers of tradition and creating a kind of music that had never been heard.

His new ten-piece band covers the Cream hits and classics by the likes of BB King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Albert King, Howlin' Wolf and Robert Cray.
