Music of Cream Sets 2022 Tour

Share This:

The Music of Cream, featuring Ginger Baker’s son, drummer Kofi Baker, and Eric Clapton’s nephew, guitarist and lead vocalist, Will Johns, have announced an extensive 2022 tour of North America.

The new show, following in the footsteps of their well-received 50th Anniversary World Tour across 2017-2019, sees the Music of Cream perform the original band’s landmark 1967 recording of Disraeli Gears in its entirety during the first set. “Clapton Classics” will follow, including favorites like “Cocaine” and “Layla,” as well as Blind Faith’s “Presence of the Lord” and “Can’t Find My Way Home.” Tickets are available here.

Watch them perform “Can’t Find My Way Home”

Baker and Johns played with Eric Clapton, his band, and other top musicians at the Ginger Baker tribute concert in London in February 2020. Guests included Steve Winwood, Roger Waters, Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones, and Paul Carrack.

Johns recalls the moment Clapton expressed his enthusiasm for continuing the legacy. “During rehearsals, Eric turned to me and said, ‘I’m pleased that you guys will continue to fly the flag.’ Naturally, I was thrilled.”

Baker adds that the show was “the best send-off my dad could have wished for. It was great to be involved. I managed to spend time with my dad a few days before he passed away back in October 2019, just ahead of our first U.K. Tour. He was also really pleased to hear we were out celebrating the music he loved so much.”

Music of Cream previously included Jack Bruce’s son, Malcolm Bruce, who departed in 2019.

Disraeli Gears featured the singles “Sunshine of Your Love” and “Strange Brew” and reached #5 in the U.K. and #4 on Billboard.

In Best Classic Bands’ review of a 2019 concert, we wrote, “This trio has the talent to live up to the Cream legacy, and they do amazing things with the material. Rather than simply replicate the original recordings and arrangements, they take the music to new places, creating a fresh, in-the-moment concert experience… Music of Cream is an amazing new take on this classic repertoire, played by band members deeply connected to its makers, who invest these songs with plenty of passion, energy, skill and conviction.”
