Huntington, N.Y. (January 19, 2015) – The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island, New York is proud to announce today that the legendary, multi Grammy®-winning guitar virtuoso, and member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – Jeff Beck – has confirmed a third performance at the venue, due to overwhelming demand. This newly added show to take place on Wednesday, April 15th will precede his two shows already set for Thursday, April 16th & Friday, April 17th, 2015. This will mark the first time that The Paramount will present a triple-header with a single artist. Limited tickets remain for the show on 4-16 while all available tickets for 4-17 are sold out.
Beck’s career took off in the mid-1960s, after replacing Clapton as lead guitarist for The Yardbirds on a recommendation from his friend Jimmy Page. He played on several of the rock group’s hits, such as “Heart Full of Soul,” “Shapes of Things” and “Over Under Sideways Down.” Beck has twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once with The Yardbirds in 1992 and once as a solo artist in 2009. He has won numerous Grammy Awards, including two at the 2011 Grammy Award Celebration when he won Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Hammerhead” and Best Pop Instrumental performance for “Nessun Dorma”, both from his last studio album, Emotion & Commotion
Recently, in London, Beck participated in The Poppy Appeal song “No Man’s Land”, a tribute to the men and women that served in World War I, resulting in 4 performances, culminating in the NFL pre-game entertainment that was broadcast from Wembley Stadium. The song featured singer Joss Stone on vocals and a gospel choir with vocals arranged by Antonia Wilson. In the meantime, a DVD of Beck’s Tokyo concert from April of this year was released on November 25th. For Beck, 2015 looks to be a banner year. In addition to both solo and co-headlining dates with ZZ Top, Beck will complete work on his new studio album, expected later this year. Joining Beck on both the solo and double-bill tour are his band – Jimmy Hall on Vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums & Nicolas Meier on guitar
