OK, he isn’t actually playing this week at Ronnie Scott‘s, but Jeff Beck does have a new DVD coming out, and that’s its title: Jeff Beck Performing This Week…Live at Ronnie Scott’s. The DVD features bassist, Tal Wilkenfeld - a Sadowsky Basses and EBS amplifiers and cabinets user who’s tour credits include Chick Corea, Eric Clapton, Joss Stone and on…
Jeff Beck will be on tour and I’ve been told that there will a chance to meet him too. Check out “Led Boots” from the DVD, featuring Tal too, pretty cool stuff:

There’s also a bit of a thing going on with Panasonic. Concert attendees that have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 will have a chance to take photos of Jeff Beck performing and submit them to the “Best of the Tour” series for JeffBeck.com. The first 10 owners who show up at the venue will get a special Panasonic VIP pass, which allows them backstage access for a photo opportunity with Jeff Beck. Panasonic will be raffling off two TZ5 class Digital Still cameras at each of the North American concerts.
