The two formed 'The Jeff Beck Group' in 1967
Stewart and Beck, who played together in The Jeff Beck Group, are set to play the Hollywood Bowl on September 27 in what is being described as “their most in depth concert in over 35 years.”
The set list is penned to include a mixture of “hits” and “rare early classics.”
The Jeff Beck Group was formed by Stewart and Beck in 1967 and also included Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood. The group released several albums before disbanding in the early 1970’s. The last time the two reunited was during a concert in 2009; you can watch footage of this here:
Meanwhile, a close friend of the late Freddie Mercury has revealed how the Queen icon once considered forming a supergroup with Rod Stewart and Elton John.
Filmmaker Rudi Dolezal enjoyed an enduring friendship with the legendary singer and shot the 1991 video to Queen’s ‘These Are The Days Of Our Lives’, which would prove to be Mercury’s final appearance with the band before his death later that year.
Dolezal’s comments come after Stewart previously discussed the idea in his autobiography and explained how it was initially touted during a meeting in Los Angeles.
“The band Queen rented a house in Bel Air, Los Angeles, for a while, and Elton and I spent a long evening there with Freddie Mercury, a sweet and funny man whom I really adored, discussing the possibility of the three of us forming a supergroup,” said Sir Rod.
“The name we had in mind was Nose, Teeth & hair, a tribute to each of our most remarked-upon physical attributes. The general idea was that we could appear dressed like the Beverley Sisters. Somehow this project never came to anything, which is contemporary music’s deep and abiding loss.”
Tickets for Stewart and Beck’s Hollywood Bowl concert are on sale from April 12.
