‘PERFORMING THIS WEEK……. LIVE AT RONNIE SCOTT’S’ IS OFFICIALLY PLATINUM IN THE USA

BECK CELEBRATES FIFTH GRAMMY AWARD WIN WITH “A DAY IN THE LIFE”

Unites with Eric Clapton for Four Special North American Shows

(Los Angeles, CA) Legendary guitarist Jeff Beck announces the second-leg of the worldwide tour promoting his first album in seven years, Emotion & Commotion. The first leg of the U.S. tour will begin on April 16th in San Francisco and head through the world famous New Orleans Jazz Festival on May 1st, while the newly-added second U.S. leg will light up the Boston scene starting on June 3rd before hitting Atlanta, New Jersey, Detroit, and Indianapolis throughout the remainder of the tour.

Continuing the wave of critical success in the early months of this year, Beck was just awarded a 2010 Grammy Award for his breath-taking take on The Beatles “A Day in the Life” from the platinum certified Performing This Week…Live At Ronnie Scott’s. In addition, Beck and his band, accompanied by Irish rockabilly sensation Imelda May, performed Les Paul’s own “How High the Moon” on the show in a stirring and memorable tribute to the late, great, guitar virtuoso. Shortly after Sunday’s Grammy performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Beck shared, “I’ve often sung his praises to the press, but to actually get to play in tribute to him . . . it’s such an honor.”

Prior to the official kick-off of the Emotion & Commotion tour, Beck will unite with fellow Hall of Fame guitarist, Eric Clapton, in February for a series of exclusive shows in London, New York City, Toronto, and Montreal. Both famed guitarists are former members of the Hall of Fame Yardbirds. Accompanying Beck at these special engagements, as well as the World Tour, will be a brand new touring band, including the Grammy award winning producer and songwriter Narada Michael Walden on drums, Rhonda Smith on bass, and Jason Rebello on keyboards.
