The Music of Cream announce November 2018 UK tour

The Music of Cream

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING their successful inaugural tour across Australia and New Zealand in 2017, the pedigree of hallowed ‘60s trio Cream – Ginger Baker’s son Kofi Baker, Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm Bruce and Eric Clapton’s nephew Will Johns – have come together for the first time in the UK to pay homage to the band’s extraordinary legacy with The Music Of Cream – 50th Anniversary World Tour.

The four-date UK tour, which starts at the Glasgow O2 Academy on Friday, November 23, celebrates 50 years since the original line-up’s farewell UK concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 26, 1968.

Having already received rave reviews in Australia and New Zealand from the media and fans alike, The Music of Cream – 50th Anniversary World Tour is primed to take over the UK by celebrating the music and legacy their family members created.

Be prepared to hear personal stories and songs such as Sunshine of Your Love, Crossroads, Spoonful and White Room performed across a comprehensive set, which will also see Kofi Baker (drums), Malcolm Bruce (bass, vocals) and Will Johns (guitar, vocals) interplay with footage of their fathers and mentors on the big screen, along with never-before-seen footage and photos.

The multi-media concert experience has been specially created for the 50th Anniversary Tour, providing some of rock’s most memorable moments with a new lease on life.

“We had such an amazing response to our first tour in Australia and New Zealand that we’ve spent some considerable time adding to the show,” shares Malcolm Bruce. “Now, we not only have this amazing legacy of music to play, but an opportunity to share some wonderful insights and stories with our audience…a backstage pass like no other, if you will.”

Adds Kofi Baker: “We also have a few surprises in store that we know people are going to really respond to. We can’t wait to be on the road again playing these shows in the UK in November.”
