You would have to look back to 2004 for the last time Jeff Beck performed in the North East. And much like a lot of tours, fans have had their wait extended by two years due to Covid. But finally, the guitar virtuoso performs at Sage Gateshead on Thursday 2nd June.

Throughout his distinguished career Jeff Beck has played in groups such as the Yardbirds, where he replaced none other than Eric Clapton; he fronted the Jeff Beck Group performing alongside esteemed peers Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood; and subsequently formed the power trio-come-supergroup Beck, Bogert and Appice whilst simultaneously pushing the boundaries of rock guitar.

The award-winning artist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has shared the stage with countless legends, as well as being a musical icon in his own right. With a career spanning over fifty years, the gifted axeman has been ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and with a career like his who could argue with that sentiment?
