This May, some of the biggest names in rock (and Hollywood) will come together to honour the late Jeff Beck in a tribute concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Organised by Sandra Beck (Jeff’s wife) and Eric Clapton, in conjunction with Triple A Entertainment Group Ltd, the concert will take place on the evenings of 22 and 23 May.
Among the lineup are Clapton himself, Rod Stewart, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, and Johnny Depp, whom Beck worked with on the collaborative studio album 18 released last July. The pair first met in 2016, and reportedly developed a close friendship, with Depp making a surprise appearance onstage at Jeff’s Sheffield gig amidst his highly publicised defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Other artists who will be appearing (subject to changes nearer to the performance dates) include:
- Doyle Bramhall
- Gary Clark Jr
- Imelda May
- John McLaughlin
- Robert Randolph
- Joss Stone
- Susan Tedeschi
- Derek Trucks
In addition to honouring the late guitar legend, proceeds from the concerts will also be donated to the Folly Wildlife Rescue based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, 15 March at 10am. You can purchase them in person from the venue or from BookingsDirect.com
Pre-sale registration is also available here, and will take place from Tuesday, 14 March at 10am.
