Jeff Beck announced this week plans for a very special concert to be held later this year.
Beck announced this week that he will return to the Hollywood Bowl this summer to celebrate two very big anniversaries. The legendary musician and former Yardbirds guitarist will perform live on Wednesday, August 10th at the famed music landmark as a celebration to mark fifty years in the music industry. The concert will also serve as a celebration to mark the 80th birthday of legendary bluesman Buddy Guy. Beth Hart will also be on hand as a special guest for the event. In discussing Guy’s inclusion in the event, Beck spoke more as a fan of Guy and his extensive body of work than a fellow musician, noting that “Sharing the stage and this moment with Buddy is a dream for me.” He went on to note the importance of Guy’s live shows and his continued influence in the music community even today saying, “His live concerts are legendary and the music world would be a very boring place without his influence.”
Tickets for the concert are available online now at http://www.hollywoodbowl.com/ or via phone at 323-850-2000. Group ticket sales begin Tuesday, February 16th and “Five or More packages will go on sale March 15th. Individual tickets can be purchased in person from The Hollywood Bowl’s box office beginning May 1st.
Beck has been working on his first book, Beck01 in recent months. The book is currently expected to be published via the London-based Genesis Publishing Group. The book will be available in a very limited number of copies, each signed by the veteran musician. The book focuses on Beck’s two main loves, hot-rodding and music. Along with completing his debut literary offering Beck also is working on an officially sanctioned documentary and his autobiography.
