LOS ANGELES – Legendary guitarist Jeff Beck will perform the United Kingdom’s national anthem “God Save the Queen” in London’s famous Wembley Stadium for the opener of the NFL’s yearly overseas match-up. This year’s contest features the Denver Broncos taking on the San Francisco 49ers. The game kicks off this Sunday, October 31, at 1PM EST.
Earlier this year, Beck electrified an intimate audience at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles around the release of his latest album Emotion & Commotion. Atco Records relives this special evening with the new release LIVE AND EXCLUSIVE FROM THE GRAMMY MUSEUM, which is available now. Audio and video is available together exclusively from iTunes for $11.99. All other digital outlets offer an audio-only version for $7.99. The album is available on CD solely through CreateSpace Disc-on-Demand, part of the Amazon.com group of companies.
For the Grammy Museum performance, Beck performed eight songs in all, tapping the new album for four, including covers of “Corpus Christi Carol,” Nessun Dorma,” and “Over The Rainbow” as well as the Beck-Rebello-penned “Hammerhead.” The remainder of the set featured the soulful “Brush With The Blues” from 1999’s Who Else!; a stunning take on The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life” (a version of which earned Beck his 2010 Grammy); and a supercharged version of “How High The Moon,” a jazz standard popularized by Beck’s hero Les Paul. The show ended on a poignant note with Beck’s signature version of The Impressions’ classic “People Get Ready,” a song the guitarist recorded in 1985 with singer Rod Stewart. Beck took the stage that night with Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Narada Michael Walden on drums, bassist Rhonda Smith, and keyboardist Jason Rebello.
