Cream Reunion -- Three Nights Only at Madison Square Garden, New York, October 24th, 25th, 26th, 2005

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 6, 2005 -- On the heels of four hugely successful nights at London's Royal Albert Hall and after much speculation, the eagerly anticipated Cream reunion lands in New York for three exclusive nights at Madison Square Garden. In what will be one of the must-see shows of this decade and their only appearance in the U.S., legendary rock group Cream -- Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton -- will play Madison Square Garden October 24th, 25th and 26th, 2005.

Also this Fall, Rhino Home Video and Reprise Records release the band's triumphant reunion performances at London's Royal Albert Hall on DVD and CD. The London shows were brilliantly captured on HD and 5.1 surround sound. More information on these titles will be forthcoming.

Cream formed in 1966 and disbanded in 1968. In just under three years, the band produced three seminal studio albums, "Fresh Cream" (1966), "Disraeli Gears" (1967) and "Wheels of Fire" (1968), and secured worldwide acclaim and commercial success with their unique take on electrified blues. The band was a prolific and thrilling live act and toured incessantly in their short but remarkable history. Prior to the Royal Albert Hall shows, the last time the band played together was in 1993 when the group was inaugurated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Los Angeles.

These shows will be produced by Ron Delsener Presents, and tickets will be available in advance to American Express Cardmembers.
