Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck Team Up for Live Gigs

(BW&BK) Two former Yardbirds are set to share the stage: Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck have announced they'll play two shows together at Saitama, Japan's Super Arena, on February 21st and 22nd.

The duo have performed together at album sessions, benefits and festivals in years past, but these concerts mark the first time the pair have ever shared the bill for major arena shows. How mighty are these two axmen? Clapton ranked Number Four on our list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and Beck came in Number 14. If by some chance you'll find yourself in Japan for this epic exhibition of guitar gods (or you just happen to live in Japan), take note that tickets for these concerts go on sale January 17th.

Both guitarists have roots in the Yardbirds, that blues-tinged British band that also lists led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page among its famous alumni. - more on this story
