Guitar Gods Eric Clapton And Jeff Beck To Play North American Shows In February

After rocking Japan and making plans to share the stage in London, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarists and former Yardbirds Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton plot out their first three North American concert dates together, beginning with a show at New York's Madison Square Garden on February 18th. Thus far the trio of dates are :

Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck
February 18 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
February 21 – Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Center
February 22 – Montreal, QC @ Bell Center

Tickets for the Toronto show go on sale Friday (December 4), with Montreal tickets on sale the following day. New York tickets will be available December 12.

Specific details about the upcoming shows have not been announced, but each artist is expected to play a set with his own band before they join forces for a collaborative final set. In Tokyo earlier this year, the last portion of the show featured songs such as "Outside Woman Blues," "Brown Bird," "Wee Baby" and "Want To Take You Higher."

Beck recently filled in for an ill Clapton at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary concerts in New York, jamming with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Sting to Buddy Guy and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons. Beck is in the studio working on his next album, a release date for which has yet to be revealed.
