Drum Legends On Stage For First Time

Ginger Baker,  Pete York & Herman Rarebell On stage together for the first time - for one night only!
BRIGHTON DOME, CHURCH ST, BRIGHTON BN1 1UE. 01273 709709 APRIL 12, 2019, 8pm
Ladies and Gentlemen, girls and boys, for one night only, I give you....cue massive drum roll....THE DRUMMERS.
The power(houses) behind the throne, these are the men who keep the beat, move the pace, weld together the instruments and provide the musical foundation and the centrifugal force on any stage they grace.
There have been various renowned drummers over the years but few more evocative, charismatic and diverse in style than these three absolute legends – Ginger Baker, Pete York and Herman Rarebell.
Tub thumpers extraordinaire, each doing different (and seemingly impossible) things with every limb, these are the men who have forged rhythms with the best of them. Together they provide an unsurpassed rock heritage spanning Cream, The Spencer Davis Group and The Scorpions.
On April 12 the three rock giants will take centre stage at the Brighton Dome bringing their unique, genre-crossing, playing styles to show just what it takes to be top of the game.
They will delve into their stellar careers to showcase their massive hits including White Room, Gimme Some Lovin’, Rock You Like A Hurricane, Passion Rules The Game and Sunshine Of Your Love.
Backed by a coterie of top musicians including the unstoppable Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake etc) , Abbas Dodoo and Alec Dankworth, all three main men will play together at the end of the night to demonstrate just how much fun can be had on a drum kit.
April 12 is a rare opportunity for drum lovers and music fans to watch, listen and learn from their drum heroes. In fact, for once, the phrase ‘not to be missed’ is completely valid. This is going to be one unique and special night!
Tickets are on sale now priced £35, £45 and £55 from the Brighton Dome  and all usual ticket outlets. The production is in association with Ina Dittke Associates.
Ginger Baker - The infamous hell-raiser and much lauded drummer who came to international fame with Cream, Blind Faith and Fela Kuti has spent the last few years playing jazz,  the music he first came to love. For Drum Legends he'll put the Cream repertoire centre stage.
Pete York – Pete is best known for his work in The Spencer Davis Group who released several top hits of the 1960s including Keep On Running which reached No 1 in 1965. This was followed by Somebody Help Me, When I Come Home, Gimme Some Lovin’ and I’m A Man. Pete went on to perform with Eric Clapton’s Powerhouse, Blues Circus and many other groups and projects over the decades. He also hosted and produced the TV series Superdrumming and Villa Fantastica about drummers and music.
Herman ‘ze German’ Rarebell – Herman joined Heavy Metal giants The Scorpions in 1977 and went on to write many of their most popular hits, including Another Piece of Meat, Rock You Like a Hurricane, Blackout and Arizona. He's active with band mates like Michael Schenker and also with his own band. He is one of the most important names in the rise of Hard Rock.
