The show, dubbed Eric Clapton & Friends: A Tribute to Ginger Baker, will feature Clapton and his touring band joined by an impressive list of special guests, including ex-Pink Floyd singer/bassist Roger Waters, Steve Winwood, Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, Chic's Nile Rodgers and founding Faces and Small Faces drummer Kenney Jones, who also played with The Who for many years.

Ginger's son, drummer Kofi Baker, also will take part in the concert, which is sold out.

Clapton's band will feature singer/keyboardist Paul Carrack, keyboardist Chris Stainton, drummers Sonny Emory and Steve Gadd, bassist Willie Weeks and backing vocalists Katie Kissoon and Sharon White.

The show will raise money for Leonard Cheshire, a U.K.-based charity supported by the Baker family. The organization helps disabled people with education, employment and independent living.

Ginger Baker died on October 6, 2019, after years of poor health. He was 80.
