AFTER MIDNIGHT are the Worlds No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band featuring front-man Mike Hall.
AFTER MIDNIGHT were formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, the home-town of The Animals, Mark Knopfler and Sting. This was long before the term “tribute band” was invented. The band originally called themselves “After Midnight” after EC’s first solo US hit. Their ability to re-create Clapton’s electrifying stage performances really caught the audience’s imagination. In guitar/vocalist Mike Hall, the band possesses a front man who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too!
In 1999, Mike won a national look-alike competition held at Madam Tussauds, London. Mike has met Slowhand twice, and even received a message of encouragement from the guitar maestro (written on a Concorde menu).
TYNE TEES TELEVISION were so impressed, they made a programme about them, called 'COVER THEIR TRACKS'. It was screened in the UK in 2000 and received rave reviews, leading to national recognition.
In 2001 they embarked on an extensive tour of UK Theatres. When the band started playing outside Newcastle, they had to think of a name for the show which was easily recognisable by people in other regions, who perhaps had not heard EC’s hit record "After Midnight". They called the tribute show "CLASSIC CLAPTON performed by After Midnight".
Since then, they have continued to perform throughout the UK and Europe including concerts at The Royal Festival Hall, London and a triumphant appearance at Glastonbury Festival in 2002. In the past few years they have performed numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia and Holland.
In July 2009 they appeared at St Andrews Auditorium in Mumbai. This was a great concert - it sold out and apparently many people were turned away. There were quite a few Bollywood stars & celebrities in the audience.
In May 2008 they played at The Acoustic Festival of Britain straight after Fairport Convention and just before Jethro Tull. In the past 28 years AFTER MIDNIGHT has become something of a rock institution.
AFTER MIDNIGHT comprises 4 excellent musicians. They have released three albums.
Eric Clapton’s recent tours unfortunately have visited only a limited number of large arenas. If fans want to hear all of his hits performed in more intimate surroundings, they really should attend an AFTER MIDNIGHT concert.
The band will be performing authentic versions of all the popular Clapton Classics including Wonderful Tonight, Tears in Heaven, Crossroads, I Shot The Sheriff, Sunshine of Your Love, Lay Down Sally, Cocaine and of course Layla! There will even be an “UNPLUGGED” segment.
NEARLY 2 HOURS OF CLASSIC CLAPTON
