Jeff Beck + Sophie Delila
One of the world's greatest electric guitarists, Jeff Beck undertakes a long awaited tour of the UK.
Jeff Beck isn't your typical guitar legend and with his band will be performing 6 dates across the UK in May 2014, including London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
One of the most influential guitarists in the history of rock music, Jeff Beck was ranked fifth in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists". While Beck was not the first rock guitarist to experiment with electronic distortion, he nonetheless helped to redefine the sound and role of the electric guitar in rock music.
Beck's work with The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group's 1968 album Truth were seminal influences on heavy metal music, which emerged in full force in the early 1970s.
The Grammy award winning, ground-breaking guitarist promises a set that reflects the eclectic musical mix that is his trademark.
This event takes place at Royal Albert Hall, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Guitar legend and innovator Jeff Beck has been bending the rules of guitar playing since he burst onto the scene with the Yardbirds in 1966. Although only a member of the band for eighteen months, he played guitar on almost all their biggest hits, and his unique playing style on songs like ‘Heart Full Of Soul’ and ‘Shapes Of Things’ undoubtedly helped to shape the psychedelic sound of the 60's.
After leaving the Yardbirds at the height of their fame, Beck embarked on a journey of musical discovery and innovation. Nearly fifty years later he is still pushing forward, and not relying on technology to create sound. Instead he prefers to utilize his own manual dexterity to bend the traditional conception of guitar music.
Following dates with the legendary Brian Wilson, Jeff's new band features Rhonda Smith (bass), Lizzie Ball (violin), Jonathan Joseph (drums) and Nicolas Meier (guitar).
