Cream Will Play in New York

Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce intend on reuniting October 24-26 for a few shows at New York's Madison Square Garden. Collectively known as Cream, the band disbanded in 1969 proceeding the release of their now classic album Wheels of Fire and the playing of their final show at Royal Albert Hall soon after. Their aptly titled, final studio album Goodbye came out in 1969. Although the group were together for a mere two years, they helped to lay the foundation of blues based rock for decades to come.

American Express cardholders will be able to purchase tickets to the New York Cream shows a full week before they go on sale to the general public September 19.
