Kofi Baker, Malcolm Bruce & Will Johns will tour The Music Of Cream for 50th anniversary

The younger family members of the original Cream lineup will be going on tour this fall to help celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary, with 34-concerts lined up to start on Sept. 28 in Canada. Under the banner, The Music Of Cream, the tribute outfit is comprised of Kofi Baker (son of Ginger Baker), Jack Bruce (son of Malcolm Bruce) and Will Johns (Eric Clapton’s nephew) who will look to reignite the bluesy-rock fury that the original British supergroup introduced to American audiences starting back in 1966 and lasting until 1969.

The eight-week North American trek throughout the upcoming fall months will follow the band’s inaugural 2017 tour across Australia and New Zealand. The tour will start out in Canadian cities including Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City in late September before coming down to the U.S. on Oct. 2 with a show in South Burlington, VT. They’ll play for a mix of both small and larger markets across the country before coming to a close in Ohio come Nov. 16. Notable stops on the fall tour include scheduled shows at Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! on Oct. 25 and the Keswick Theatre just north of Philadelphia on Oct. 18.

“Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream's legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s,” it reads in a statement on the band’s website. “Listen to the stories and see them interplay with their mentors on the big screen - master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit, celebrating an extraordinary legacy.”

The “interplay” reference will presumably include video footage of the original also playing alongside the band’s live renditions of their biggest classic rock hits such as "Spoonful," "Strange Brew," "Sunshine of Your Love," "White Room," "Crossroads" and more.

“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,” Malcolm Bruce also added in a statement. “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.”
