Biography

AFTER MIDNIGHT the World’s No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band featuring front-man Mike Hall are continuing their 25th Anniversary Tour throughout the UK during 2011.

The band was formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne long before the term “tribute band” was invented, and named themselves ‘’After Midnight’’ after Eric Clapton’s first solo hit. Their ability to re-create Clapton’s electrifying stage performances really caught the audience’s imagination. In guitar/vocalist Mike Hall, the band possesses a front man who not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him too!

In 1999, Mike won a national look-alike competition held at Madam Tussauds in London. Mike has met Slowhand twice, and even received a message of encouragement from the guitar maestro (written on a Concorde menu).

TYNE TEES TELEVISION were so impressed, they made a programme about them, called ‘COVER THEIR TRACKS’. They filmed the band’s concert at Newcastle Opera House in front of 600 ecstatic fans. It was shown in August 2000 and received rave reviews, leading to national recognition.

In 2001 they embarked on an extensive tour of UK Theatres. They called the tribute show “CLASSIC CLAPTON”. Since then, they have continued to perform throughout the UK and Europe including concerts at The Royal Festival Hall, London and a triumphant appearance at Glastonbury Festival in 2002. In the past few years they have performed numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia and Holland.
