FANS are gearing up for "show of the decade" when two of the world's best guitarists reunite to perform together next month.

Following a critically acclaimed collaboration last year in Tokyo, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, are due to share the stage again once more under the domed roof of Greenwich's O2.

The legends will do two shows on February 13 and 14 where they will each perform their own respective sets followed by a joint set that is expected to be longer than their first shows in Japan.

The former Cream singer said: "I've always considered Jeff Beck to be one of the finest guitar players around. He's a friend, a great guy and a truly gifted musician. We had such a fun time in Japan that it seemed natural to play together again."

Both Beck and Clapton have long and prestigious musical careers with countless honours and awards to their names. Beck has been inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame twice and Clapton is the only artist to be inducted three times.

Tickets can be purchased from www.the2.co.ukor by calling 0844 856 020.
