'Sunshine Of Your Love' will pay tribute to Jack Bruce.

The concert, taking place on 24 October at London's Roundhouse, will feature performances from Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Vernon Reid, Mark King, Liam Bailey, Fiona Bevan and Jack Bruce’s Big Blues Band, with more to be announced.

They will all celebrate the life and music of the late Cream bassist on the first anniversary of his death.

Musical Director, Nitin Sawhney said:

"Jack Bruce was one of my biggest heroes when I was growing up – a consummate musician, composer and all round rock genius with a killer voice and one of the most creative and versatile musical minds of his generation.  Being asked to musically direct this show celebrating his life and work is a great honour and privilege and I look forward to working with an amazing line up of contemporary artists and rock legends."

The concert is being organised in aid of Jack’s favourite charity East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), who support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 18 March via planetrock.com/tickets.
