With more than 30 years experience of performing Eric Clapton’s music the band After Midnight are second only to the man himself
And they will be proving it when they hit the stage in Lanark later this month.
Formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne - long before the term “tribute band” was invented – the band have become something of a rock institution in their 32 years of playing with front-man Mike Hall not only looking like Eric Clapton, but sings and plays guitar like him too.
Tyne Tees Television made a documentary about them called “Cover Their Tracks” which, after airing in 2000, the band received national recognition!
Comprising of four excellent musicians, the show stunningly recreates Slowhand's electrifying stage performances. The whole of Clapton's illustrious career is covered including Cream, The Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos and the solo years.
The band has toured the UK and Europe including numerous sell-out shows. They've performed at The Royal Festival Hall and Glastonbury Festival, as well as playing concerts in Estonia, Spain, Holland, France and even toured India.
The show is a two-hour journey through the great man's music including all of his hits - Wonderful Tonight, I Shot the Sheriff, Lay Down Sally, Crossroads, Tears in Heaven, Layla and even an Unplugged segment!
