The last time guitarist Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker appeared on stage together was the band’s 1993 Hall of Fame induction, where they played a three-song set that has kept fans hungry for a reunion ever since.

Cream formed in 1966 and released four albums in two years with worldwide sales of more than 35 million copies. The group played its last British show at the Albert Hall in 1968, shortly after returning from a U.S. tour that had earned them a reported $60,000 per night.

Clapton has said the May 2-6 shows will be recorded for release on CD and DVD.
