Music of Cream - 50th Anniversary World Tour
Music of Cream - 50th Anniversary World Tour
50 years since their earth-shaking debut album, progeny of the British rock power trio (Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce) have rekindled the spirit of Cream in a new multi-media concert experience. They are winning acclaim and packing auditoriums from Australia to the UK to the U.S., making fans feel the fire and freedom of 1967, proving that classic rock is alive and well.

Kofi BAKER (son of Ginger) on drums, Malcolm BRUCE (son of Jack) on bass, and Will JOHNS (Eric’s nephew and son of Zeppelin/Stones/Hendrix engineer Andy) on guitar, join together to unleash the lightning that electrified a generation. Come and hear old favorites “Spoonful,” “Strange Brew,” “Sunshine of Your Love,” “White Room,” “Crossroads” and “Badge” performed by master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit and legacy.

Kofi’s first performance was with his father, jazz-rock legend Ginger Baker, on live TV at the age of six. He’s since played drums behind Tom Jones, Jack Bruce, Steve Marriott, and as half of a polyrhythmic powerhouse with his father across Europe in the 1980s. More recently, Kofi has played the Extreme Guitar Tour with Uli Jon Roth, Vinny Appice and Vinnie Moore and joined with Malcolm Bruce to rekindle the spirit of Cream to critical acclaim in the US and UK. His own albums include Lost City and Abstract Logic, with Jonas Hellborg and Shawn Lane.

The son of Cream singer-bassist Jack Bruce, Malcolm grew up in the thick of rock royalty and, via the Guildhall School of Music, began performing professionally at 16. As pianist, bassist, guitarist or engineer he has shared studios with Little Richard, Elton John, Eric Clapton and Dr John, and recorded and performed often with his father in the UK, US and Europe. Recent tours have included 60 dates with Joe Satriani and revisiting the music of Cream with Kofi Baker and Will Johns.

Encouragement from his uncle (by marriage), Eric Clapton, was an auspicious start for teenaged singer-guitarist Will Johns. The son of legendary recording engineer Andy Johns (The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin), he has since performed with Joe Strummer, Ronnie Wood, Jack Bruce and Bill Wyman, and most recently the music of Cream with Malcolm Bruce and Kofi Baker. Will has released three solo albums.
