Traffic Tribute To Take Place This Sunday
Winwood and Weller amongst stars to celebrate the life of Jim Capaldi

A special benefit show is to take place this Sunday (January 21) at London’s Roundhouse in celebration of the late musician and Traffic founding-member Jim Capaldi.

‘Dear Mr Fantasy’ – a special night featuring the music of Jim Capaldi and Traffic stars Steve Winwood, Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, Gary Moore, Paul Weller, and Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens).

Traffic co-founder Steve Winwood, with Capaldi, wrote the ten platinum-selling prog rock albums throughout the late 60s and early 70s that made Traffic a huge success.

Capaldi also had a successful solo career after the band – even contributing ‘Love Will Keep Us Alive’ to The Eagles’ ‘Hell Freezes Over’ LP.

They briefly re-united in 2004, when Traffic were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

The tribute concert will raise money for the The Jubilee Action Street Children Appeal, a Brazillian charity that both Capladi and his wife Aninha supported.

Signed guitars collected from the appearing artists will also be auctioned later on Ebay.
