David Bowie – Tokyo FM 1990
David Bowie was a leading figure in the music industry and is often considered to be one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, acclaimed by critics and fellow musicians. Taking his album Sound + Vision on a world tour he claimed that he would retire his Ziggy Stardust characters after the tour. This results in him playing all the classics in an exhilarating set from ‘Rebel Rebel’ to ‘Heroes’ to ‘Fame’. An unforgettable experience!

Sex Pistols – Agents of Anarchy
Sex Pistols turned punk into a global cultural phenomenon. Their music was filled with a power and aggression that was unheard of in the 70’s with vocalist Johnny Rotten leaving all glamour behind and presenting a sound and an image that would inspire many generations. ‘God Save the Queen’ was banned not only by the BBC but also by nearly every independent radio station, making it the “most heavily censored record in British history”. Ofcourse it is included on this record!

The Runaways – The Agora Cleveland 1976
Their ‘Cherry Bomb’ hit the world in 1976 and still considered the ultimate rebel-girl anthem. This group of teen girls were dismissed as a marketing stunt in the early days, but
The Runaways have grown in stature over the years as the first all-female band known to play loud, straight-up, guitar-driven rock & roll. They paved the way for female artists to rock as hard as the boys. After their 1979 break-up guitarist Lita Ford had a successful glam metal solo career, while Joan Jett became a superstar, singing her many hit songs all over the world to this day.

Eric Clapton – The Forum 1994
Eric Clapton made the mould for the ultimate ‘guitar hero’ since the sixties when he was part of the Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream and Derek & the Dominos. When he went solo his legendary status only grew. This is Eric Clapton reconnected with his blues roots. This recording follows the release of his first all-blues album ‘From the Cradle’ with new versions of old blues standards, highlighted by Claptons electric guitar playing.
