Cream Reunion: London Night Three
For those going to the final Cream reunion concert on 6 May 2005, this is a spoiler. If you don't want to know the set list prior to the performance, it's advised that you stop reading now.
The third of Cream's reunion concerts took place at the Royal Albert Hall on 5 May 2005. Like the previous evenings, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce were firing on all cylinders.
Here are some brief quotes from some who attended the gig:
"Tight but time-limited versions of NSU, Sweet Wine, Sleepy Time Time and Deserted Cities of the Heart brought back memories of being in the barracks overseas in ‘68-‘69 for me. The back of the stage featured a computer driven fluorescent multi-colored psychedelic light show on a twelve-foot high “cinemascope” screen that curved and ran the length of the stage. They even managed an amoeba effect that channeled the Fillmore." - John P. Farris
"Eric's work on Stormy Monday was as great a solo as will hear. The crowd gave an ovation during the solo when Eric hit a protracted note as only he can. It tingled the spine. Thi concert was better than night one and certainly as good a concert as I have witnessed." - Joe Sowinski
Full length fan reviews and more information will be posted in the Tour Section of whereseric.com for all of the London Cream Reunion Concerts.
