The music of Cream will be celebrated across the U.S. and parts of Canada this fall when the sons of original members Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce team up with the nephew, through marriage, of original member Eric Clapton.
Drummer Kofi Baker, bassist Malcolm Bruce and guitarist Will Johns present The Music of Cream – 50th Anniversary World Tour, a 34-date tour starting on September 28th in Ottawa, Ontario and running through November 16th in Cincinnati.
The 50th anniversary is in recognition of the trio’s farewell tour of the U.S. in 1968. The show, which has played in Australia and New Zealand, features footage of Cream, some of it never before seen.
Malcolm Bruce says, “We’ve spent some considerable time adding to the show. 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.”
And Kofi Baker adds that they have “a few surprises in store that we know people are going to really respond to, so we can’t wait to be on the road again playing these shows across North America this fall.”
The last time Cream performed was in 2005. Jack Bruce died from cancer in 2014.
