Following their successful inaugural tour across Australia and New Zealand in 2017, the pedigree of hallowed ‘60s trio Cream – Ginger Baker’s son Kofi Baker, Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm Bruce and Eric Clapton’s nephew* Will Johns – have come together for the first time in the UK to pay homage to the band’s extraordinary legacy with The Music Of Cream – 50th Anniversary World Tour.
The four-date UK tour which starts at the Glasgow O2 Academy on Friday 23rd November celebrates 50 years since the original line-up’s farewell UK concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 26, 1968.

The Music of Cream – 50th Anniversary World Tour.
“We had such an amazing response to our first tour in Australia and New Zealand that we’ve spent some considerable time adding to the show,” shares Malcolm Bruce. “Now, we not only have this amazing legacy of music to play, but an opportunity to share some wonderful insights and stories with our audience…a backstage pass like no other, if you will.”
Adds Kofi Baker, “We also have a few surprises in store that we know people are going to really respond to. We can’t wait to be on the road again playing these shows in the UK in November.”
During its heartbreakingly short lifespan, Cream was an explosive musical cocktail that provided the super-group blueprint for others to follow. The group’s third album, Wheels of Fire (1968), was the world’s first platinum-selling double album, and collectively they sold more than 15 million copies of their albums worldwide. Rolling Stone ranked the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group (inducted in 1993) as 67th in their ‘100 Greatest Artists of All Time’ list.
Apart from a brief reunion in 2005 of seven shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall and New York’s Madison Square Garden, Cream retained an almost mythological status in the music world, right up until the passing of Jack Bruce in 2014. For many fans, this marked the end of an era and an acceptance that there would never be another opportunity to celebrate the group’s legacy. That is, until the Music of Cream – 50th Anniversary World Tour hit Australia and New Zealand last year.
Now, the trio of Baker, Bruce and Johns are looking forward to inspiring and re-igniting the UK with their very own celebration of a musical legacy that runs through their veins.
