Cream of BST Tonight 8/7/18
One of music’s greatest artists will headline Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park tonight with Eric Clapton set to play a very special concert, continuing the legacy of all-time greats gracing the Great Oak Stage. With a decades-long career and countless accolades to his name, Clapton is also something of a local, having first played Hyde Park with Blind Faith on 7th June 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. With Special Guests, Santana, his old mucker Steve Winwood and Gary Clark Jr. - it's going to be awesome!
