Former Stranglers' frontman Hugh Cornwell, Ulil Jon Roth of The Scorpions, Bernie Marsden of Whitesnake, and Nico Bruce are on the bill for a tribute concert for the late Cream bassist Jack Bruce in London this October.
The gig is in aid of East Anglia's Children’s Hospices and will take place on October 24 in the Roundhouse on the eve of the first anniversary of Bruce's death.
Artists already announced include Cream’s drummer Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Vernon Reid of Living Color, Level 42's Mark King, and Jack Bruce’s Big Blues Band. Further additions and special guests have yet to be announced.
"I am very excited about the repertoire chosen by Jack’s wife Margrit and his family,“ said Nitin Sawhney, musical director of the concert.
“The show will consist of two halves, covering the broad range of Jack’s solo work and his most classic gems with Cream. Each half will build energy in the way that Jack was used to, culminating in an explosive and uplifting conclusion to a wonderful night of Jack’s favourite collaborators, friends and legendary musicians performing his work."
