It has been said that he not only looks like Eric Clapton, he sings and plays guitar like him too! Bass player Dave Robson is also a talented keyboards player and song-writer and he is a former member of north east chart band Geordie. In fact he was with them at the time Brian Johnson left to join AC/DC.
It is very rare for After Midnight to perform at local venues these days. Their Classic Clapton Tour takes them to theatre venues throughout the world. The band has a huge following in the north east.
For these After Midnight unplugged shows Mike & Dave will both sing & play guitar, performing covers of music by The Eagles, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Crowded House and a number of 60 s and 70 s classics. They will even include at least one of Dave s original compositions. NB: these shows will NOT be Eric Clapton tribute gigs.
AFTER MIDNIGHT were formed in Newcastle in 1985. Since then they have become one of the best-loved bands on Tyneside. In recent years they have concentrated on their Eric Clapton tribute concerts performed at theatres all over the UK under the name CLASSIC CLAPTON.
They have toured throughout the UK including The Royal Festival Hall and a triumphant appearance at Glastonbury Festival in 2002. In the past few years they have performed numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia, Holland & France. In 2009 they appeared in Mumbai. They were invited back for 3 more concerts in India in 2016. In March 2017 they appeared in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
