The world's greatest living rock guitarist is coming to Vancouver
Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck all played in the Yardbirds, but only one of them is the best. Yeah, I know, beauty's in the ear of the beholder, and there's a lot of Clapton and Page fans out there. But we here at EON took our own personal poll and decided what the truth was. So there.
Jeff Beck, the world's greatest living rock guitarist, announced today that he'll embark on a Canadian tour this fall, which includes a stop at the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts on October 27. Don't bother checking your calender--it's a Thursday night. You're free. He hits the stage at 7:30 pm sharp. See you there.
Tickets for the Beck concert go on sale this Friday (June 24) at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster, priced at $77.50 and $55 (plus service charges and fees), and you can find them here. If he sounds anywhere near how he did on his last live album, Performing This Week...Live at Ronnie Scott's, it'll be worth every damn penny. And if he plays Stevie Wonder's "Cause We've Ended as Lovers", it'll be worth a whole lot more.
