The Yardbirds

Described as “the most impressive guitar band in rock music” and with former members including three of the world’s greatest guitarists; Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, The Yardbirds are undoubtedly one of the most impressive and influential sixties blues rock bands. Formed in 1963, The Yardbirds reformed after being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame back in 1992 and have continued their legacy through extensive touring. Their high quality music speaks for itself with huge hits such as ‘For Your Love’, ‘Heart Full Of Soul’, and ‘Shape Of Things’, and their live show remains a powerful and unmissable experience.

The current Yardbirds line-up are still going strong and includes original members Jim McCarty (drums) and Top Topham (lead guitar), plus Ben King (lead guitar), Andy Mitchell (lead vocals/harmonica), and David Smale (bass guitar).

This is the last show ever with the current line-up, don’t miss this seminal sixties band perform live!
