Jimmy Kimmel Live, Eric Clapton
To cap off the year, Clark joined rock icons The Rolling Stones for the band's first U.S. "50 and Counting" concert at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, in early December. The Stones were so taken with Clark that they invited him back to join them for their global pay-per-view concert that blew the roof off New Jersey's Prudential Center on December 15th.
Clark is wrapping up a on tour in New Zealand and Australia with plans to return to Australia in February where he will perform at the annual Big Day Out Festival. Clark and his band will return to Los Angeles to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, February 6th, on the outdoor stage performing "Ain't Messin' Round" and "Numb" from Blak and Blu. Fans can also expect some exclusive online performances as well.
Tours of Europe in February and March, plus a major tour of the U.S. in April, are planned with details to be revealed soon. We can confirm at this time that Clark and the band have accepted an offer to support dear friend Eric Clapton for a string of dates in April and May that include:
May 13 Birmingham, UK LG Arena
May 14 Manchester, UK Manchester Arena
May 17, 18, 20, 21, 23, 24 & 26 London, UK Royal Albert Hall
Apr 12, 13 NYC / Crossroads Madison Square Garden
Finally, the latest campaign for the John Varvatos brand brings together music legend Jimmy Page, guitarist for "the greatest rock and roll band of all time" Led Zeppelin, paired with the 28-year-old emerging American music talent Gary Clark Jr. The images were shot in London by Danny Clinch, against a textured backdrop at the historic Rivoli Ballroom, where the two sharply dressed subjects stand out in an iconic black and white portrait.
