Ginger Baker's son KOFI BAKER, Jack Bruce's son MALCOLM BRUCE and Eric Clapton's nephew WILL JOHNS have come together for the first time in North America

Following their successful inaugural tour across Australia and New Zealand in 2017, the pedigree of hallowed '60s trio Cream -- Ginger Baker's son KOFI BAKER, Jack Bruce's son MALCOLM BRUCE and Eric Clapton's nephew (by marriage) WILL JOHNS -- have come together for the first time in North America to pay homage to the band's extraordinary legacy with The Music Of Cream - 50th Anniversary World Tour. Spanning over 30 cities throughout North America beginning September 28, this tour marks 50 years since the original lineup's farewell U.S. tour of 1968.

For these North American dates, VNUE and The Music of Cream - 50th Anniversary World Tour have forged a unique collaboration leveraging VNUE's world class touring services, and instant live recording platforms.

"I'm really very excited to join forces with VNUE," stated Malcolm Bruce. "To seamlessly deliver pristine quality recordings on the fly into the hands of our fans is such a great addition to our touring strategy. This allows us to focus fully on the performance. These guys have worked with some stellar artists and it's an honor to hit the road with them." Bruce stated further.

"VNUE are at the cutting edge of live recording today with their set.fm app, it is a wonderful thing to be working with them on our tour," commented Will Johns. "Providing an all-encompassing merchandise model that gets results is golden and we are delighted with this exciting alliance." Johns added.

"Cream were all about playing live and being in the moment. No two nights were the same. With VNUE recording each of our shows, fans will have their very own unique memento to take home with them. It will also keep us on our toes, so that we deliver! We're really looking forward to it," noted Kofi Baker.

Fans can expect personal stories and songs such as "Sunshine of Your Love," "Crossroads," "Spoonful" and "White Room" performed by Baker (drums), Bruce(bass, vocals) and Johns (guitar, vocals) across a comprehensive set of favorites and deep cuts.
