Durban “Bluesman” Rusty Red pays tribute to Eric Clapton and other blues legends at the Rockwood Theatre at Sibaya this weekend. The one night only performance on Saturday July 13 2019, promises a journey through a soundtrack driven by blues icons like Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, JJ Cale and many more.

The show will highlight Eric Clapton’s greatest hits from his early days in The Yardbirds to Cream and as a solo artist, a career that has spanned more than five decades and has earned him a triple induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Eric Clapton drew inspiration from the likes of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, BB King, Jimi Hendrix among other Blues legends, and in turn Clapton inspired modern Blues musicians including the likes of John Mayer. His influence and collaborations have earned him 18 Grammy Awards, of which our very own Blues craftsmen will showcase your favourites in this stellar performance.

This not-to-be-missed show will feature Clapton’s greatest hits including Before You Accuse Me, Lay Down Sally, Crossroads, Change The World, Wonderful Tonight, Layla and so many more.

The show is for all ages. Tickets R130 (youngsters 12 free). Book at or 031 010 6444.
