Eric Clapton announced, that he will perform a special show in London on February 17, 2020 in tribute to the late Ginger Baker, former cream drummer and bandmate, who died last October 6 with 80 years old.
The event will take place at the Hammersmith Apollo. The presentation will have all its revenue reverted to Leonard Cheshire, an NGO that helps people with health problems. The setlist will revolve around the musician partnerships in Cream and Blind Faith.
Named “Eric Clapton & Friends: A Tribute to Ginger Baker,” the show promises to feature big names, but the lineup has not yet been announced. A name that probably will be present besides Eric Clapton is Steve Winwood that was their bandmate on Blind Faith.
