Ginger Baker. Jack Bruce. Eric Clapton. Cream was a chemical explosion like no other, the blueprint for every supergroup to follow and the heavy blues precursor to Hendrix, Zeppelin and so much more.

The fiery union of blues guitar god Eric Clapton and the jazz skewed rhythm section of Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce caused a psychedelic sensation that rang loud from their '66 debut to their fourth album of '69, "Goodbye".

The sad passing of Jack Bruce in October 2014 marked an official end to a legend that gave us "Strange Brew", "Sunshine of Your Love", "White Room", "Badge" and definitive, powerhouse versions of trad blues staples such as "Spoonful" and "Crossroads".

Now, fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream's legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s.

Malcolm Bruce (son of Jack) and Kofi Baker (son of Ginger) unite with Will Johns (nephew of Eric and son of Zeppelin/ Stones engineer Andy) to unleash the lightning that electrified a generation — with special guest “The Voice of Rock”, and stunning bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple).

"Spoonful", "Strange Brew", "Sunshine of Your Love", "White Room", "Crossroads" and "Badge" will be performed by master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit and legacy.

This is a very special concert tour that celebrates the most innovative and explosive supergroup of all time, in the hands of those that knew them best.
