Rolling Stones and Aerosmith members added to Jeff Beck tribute concerts

Members of The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith have been added to the lineup for the Jeff Beck tribute concerts in London next month.

Ronnie Wood – an original member of The Jeff Beck Group – and Joe Perry of Aerosmith will join an all-star cast at the sold-out Royal Albert Hall on May 22 and 23 to honor the late guitarist, who passed away on January 10 at the age of 78 after suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis.

In association with Sandra Beck and The Jeff Beck Estate, “A Tribute To Jeff Beck With Eric Clapton & Friends” will see members of the Jeff Beck Band (Rhonda Smith, Anika Nilles and Robert Stevenson) joined by an extensive list of artists, including Doyle Bramhall II, Gary Clark Jr, Johnny Depp, Billy F Gibbons, Imelda May, John McLaughlin, Robert Randolph, Olivia Safe, Rod Stewart, Joss Stone, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

A full list of artists will be finalized near the date of the performances.

Beck rose to prominence in 1965 when he joined The Yardbirds as a replacement for Clapton, and briefly performed alongside Jimmy Page in the lineup before being fired during a US tour.
