Band After Midnight North East England
After Midnight were formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne, taking their name from one of Eric Claptons hits.

Their ability to re-create Claptons electrifying stage performances really caught the audiences 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 2001 they embarked on an extensive tour of UK Theatres. They called the tribute show `CLASSIC CLAPTON`. They are now acknowledged as the World`s No1 Eric Clapton Tribute Band

Mike has met Slowhand twice, and even received a message of encouragement from the guitar maestro (written on a Concorde menu).

For the first 15 years After Midnight performed at most of the pubs and clubs in the north east of England, building up a loyal following but playing a variety of covers including Free, Cream, Dire Straits and of course Eric Clapton. In 2000 the band began concentrating on tribute concerts devoted entirely to Slowhands music.

TYNE TEES TELEVISION made a programme about them, called `COVER THEIR TRACKS`. They filmed the band`s concert at Newcastle Tyne Theatre, in front of 600 ecstatic fans. It was shown in August 2000 leading to national recognition.

They have performed 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, Holland & France.

In July 2009 they appeared in Mumbai. A 10,000 mile round-trip for 1 concert, but it was a great experience. They were honoured to be invited back for 3 more concerts in India in 2016. T , On the final night of the tour After Midnight performed in front of 3500 people in Mumbai. On 18 March 2017 they appeared in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
