One of music’s greatest artists is next in line for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2018.
Eric Clapton is set to play a very special concert on July 8th 2018, continuing the legacy of all-time greats gracing the Great Oak Stage.
With a decades-long career and countless accolades to his name, Eric Clapton is also something of a local, having first played Hyde Park with Blind Faith on June 7th, 1969 alongside band mates Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood and Rick Grech to a 120,000 strong audience – it was the band’s debut.
He returned to the Royal Park in 1996, recording a classic live concert that raised money for The Prince’s Trust, again in 2008 and has played over 200 times at the nearby Royal Albert Hall.
“I have happy memories of performing in Hyde Park in the past,” says Eric, “and I’m really looking forward to playing there again – the whole atmosphere is very special.”
He is the only person to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame on three occasions – with The Yardbirds, Cream and as a solo artist.
Eric Clapton truly stands alongside the likes of The Rolling Stones, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty and other legends who have played Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park since its inception in 2013.
The first special guests for the day are also announced with fellow guitar legend Santana heading the pack, alongside Clapton’s friend and Blind Faith partner Steve Winwood.
Young guitar slinger Gary Clark Jr will also join the lineup, a master musician from a new generation.
