Jack Bruce ‘Sunshine of your love’ tribute concert screening


11-04-2018

An exclusive screening of the Jack Bruce Sunshine of your Love tribute concert with celebrity question and answer session will be taking place in May to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Tickets are available now for the evening which will take place on Monday 14th May 2018 – which would have been Jack’s 75th birthday.

The screening and Q&A will be hosted by Edith Bowman, attended by Jack’s family and musicians who performed at the tribute, including Musical Director Nitin Sawhney. 

Sunshine of your Love was held in 2015 on the first anniversary of Jack Bruce’s passing. The event boasted a star-studded line up of world class musicians performed a moving musical tribute to the Scottish legend at The Roundhouse in London.

The tribute concert, musically directed by Nitin Sawhney, featured Jack’s Cream bandmate Ginger Baker, Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, Joss Stone, Level 42’s Mark King, Living Colour’s Vernon Reid, Uli Jon Roth, Hugh Cornwell and many more.  This incredible line-up delighted the capacity audience with a stunning selection of Bruce’s songs spanning his entire career, from the pre-Cream days to his final album ‘Silver Rails’.

The tribute concert was recorded for posterity and is presented in HD with surround sound audio. This unique recording will receive its debut screening in the luxurious surroundings of the Curzon Mayfair on 14th May 2018. This is a particularly auspicious date, as it would have marked Jack’s 75th Birthday.

This exclusive screening will be followed by a Q&A hosted by Edith Bowman. This will offer audience members a unique opportunity to quiz many of the original tribute’s contributors, including music director Nitin Sawhney, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Mark King and members of Bruce’s family, about this wonderful concert.

All profits from the screening will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. EACH were also the beneficiaries of the original tribute concert, which raised more than £35,000.

Elaine John, Head of Major Supporters at EACH, said: “On behalf of everyone at EACH I would like to thank Jack’s family for their continued support. The concert back in 2015 raised more than £35,000 and I’m sure this screening will be a huge success.

“Jack was a great supporter of EACH for many years and it’s lovely to know that his wishes were for people to continue to support us. Thanks to the dedicated support of Jack’s family, the memory of Jack lives on and is helping to raise awareness and valuable funds to provide vital care and support to life-threatened children, young people and their families. Not only is Jack’s legacy a musical one, it’s a charitable one too.”

Nitin Sawhney says: “I felt deeply honoured when Natasha and Margrit asked me to musically direct this wonderful tribute show to Jack Bruce’s fantastic body of work.  Directing such a range of musical legends, who all came together to reproduce and perform the highlights of Jack’s work, was an enormously inspirational experience.  Everyone was determined to rise to the occasion and bring their own special talents to make this an unforgettable night and a fitting response to one of rock’s greatest songwriters and icons. Thank you to all of Jack’s amazing family for the privilege of bringing such an important evening to life.” 

This tribute concert is a fitting and lasting memory of the musical repertoire of which Jack was such a part. And of the man himself; often outspoken, volatile and impassioned, he retained the humble warmth and intelligence which marked him as one of the great musical personalities of our time.

There are currently no further plans to release the footage, so this screening is the only occasion at which fans can watch this incredible live concert recording.
