Tales of Cream, Detroit's premiere Cream Tribute act, brings you a show celebrating Disraeli Gears 50th Anniversary along with an exclusive set remembering Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert.
In November 1967 Cream released its second studio effort and highest rated album, Disraeli Gears. Eric Clapton's flawless guitar playing, Jack Bruce's jazz-influenced bass and vocal might, and Ginger Baker's incredible drumming delivered gems such as; "Strange Brew", "Tales of Brave Ulysses" and one of the most recognizable riffs of all time, "Sunshine of Your Love". Tales of Cream will perform this album in its entirety to celebrate its 50th Anniversary!
And as if that weren't enough, Tales of Cream will be joined by a second guitarist /vocalist and keyboard player to perform "Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert"!
The Rainbow Concert was organized by Pete Townshend of The Who in 1973 as Clapton's first public appearance after a lengthy struggle with heroin addiction. Prior to the Rainbow Concerts Clapton had not performed live for two years, broken only by his performance at the Concert for Bangladesh in August 1971. The band was full of English rock luminaries including his old Blind Faith pals, Steve Winwood & Rick Grech, Winwood's Traffic mate Jim Capaldi, Ron Wood and Pete Townshend himself. They performed selections from; Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, Clapton (solo), Traffic and Jimi Hendrix.
