Cream in the USA

Published: 2005-09-08
The original blues-rock power trio, Cream, had such a huge response after its shows in London's Royal Albert Hall this past summer that it's going to New York. Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, and Eric Clapton will be playing at Madison Square Garden for only three nights: October 24th, 25th and 26th.

Though only together for three years, from 1966 to 1968, Cream produced three highly successful and influential albums: Fresh Cream (1966), Disraeli Gears (1967), and Wheels of Fire (1968). Combining a jammy, improvisatory blues style with electric rock, Cream created a high voltage sound. Eventually the egos of the three members drove the band apart.

Tickets for the event go on advance sale to American Express Card-holders on Monday September 12th and on September 19th to the rest of us.

Actually the egos of two of the band memebers (Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce) drove the band apart.
