Jeff will now play at the City Hall on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, instead of May 23 this year.

The Grammy Award-winning guitarist is universally acknowledged as one of the most talented and significant guitarists in the world, and has played alongside some of the greatest artists of rock, blues and jazz.

Over the course of his distinguished 50+ music career, Jeff Beck has earned an incredible eight Grammy Awards, been ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” and been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice – once as a member of the Yardbirds and again as a solo artist. In the summer of 2016, the guitar virtuoso celebrated his five decades of music with an extraordinary concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl.

Jeff is working on new music due in 2020 to be released worldwide by Rhino/Warner Records.

He famously replaced Eric Clapton as the Yardbirds’ lead guitarist in 1965 and later went on to form The Jeff Beck Group, which featured Rod Stewart on vocals and Ron Wood on bass. Their two albums - Truth (1968) and Beck-Ola (1969) – would become musical touchstones for hard rockers in the years to come.

The constantly evolving Beck’s next move -- a power trio with bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice, which released Beck, Bogert and Appice (1973), once again shattered people’s preconceptions of what a rock guitarist was supposed to sound like.

1985’s Flash kept Beck in the spotlight as he earned the best rock instrumental Grammy for the song Escape. A second Grammy came with Jeff Beck’s Guitar Shop with Terry Bozzio and Tony Hymas, and a third for Dirty Mind from the You Had It Coming album in 2001. 2009 saw the release of the platinum-selling Performing This Week… Live at Ronnie Scott’s, which earned a Grammy for A Day In The Life.

Beck’s astonishing 2010 solo album, Emotion & Commotion, brought about two additional Grammy Awards; Beck was nominated in five categories before bringing home three: best rock instrumental performance for Hammerhead and best pop instrumental performance for Nessun Dorma, both from Emotion & Commotion, and best pop collaboration with Vocals for Imagine, his collaboration with Herbie Hancock.

His Rock ‘N’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul album was nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award for best rock album. In 2016 he released Loud Hailer and in 2017 Jeff Beck: Live At The Hollywood Bowl was released, both to widespread critical acclaim.

Jeff is working on new music due in 2020 to be released worldwide by Rhino / Warner Records.
