Jeff Beck Tribute Concerts Expand All-Star Lineup

Share This:

The two Jeff Beck tribute concerts scheduled for May 22-23, 2023, at London’s Royal Albert Hall have added even more wattage to their all-star lineups. On March 30, the news was shared that Ronnie Wood and Joe Perry were also going to perform. Tickets for the shows, A Tribute to Jeff Beck With Eric Clapton & Friends, went on sale March 15; both quickly sold-out. Tickets may also be available on StubHub.

The concerts were announced on March 10 by his wife, Sandra Beck, and Clapton, to honor the memory and artistry of the trailblazing rock guitarist who died on Jan. 10 at age 78 after a sudden illness. The final list of performers will be finalized near the date of the concerts. Artists who previously committed to be a part of the tribute shows are Doyle Bramhall, Clapton, Johnny Depp, Billy Gibbons, Imelda May, John McLaughlin, Robert Randolph, Olivia Safe, Rod Stewart, Joss Stone, Gary Clark Jr, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. Also expected to perform, from the Jeff Beck Band, are Rhonda Smith, Anika Nilles and Robert Stevenson.

Surplus income from the concerts will be donated to the Folly Wildlife Rescue based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

When Beck passed, his peers shared their grief, many describing him as their “hero” and “inspiration.” “You were the greatest, my man,” wrote Stewart. “One of my band of brothers has left this world, and I’m going to dearly miss him,” said Ronnie Wood. “His unique style of playing was something that no one could match,” wrote Paul McCartney, “and I will always remember the great times we had together.” Graham Gouldman, who wrote the Yardbirds’ hits, “For Your Love” and “Heart Full of Soul,” told Best Classic Bands, “Jeff Beck was simply the best guitarist in the world.”

    I think it’s great that they’re doing this. I wish I could travel from the US to go. Where is Tal in this lineup?
