Here’s everything fans need to know about Jeff Beck’s tribute concert.
Beck’s death shocked the music industry as his passing happened “suddenly.” The famed singer and musician reportedly died at a hospital near his home in Surrey, England, following his short battle with bacterial meningitis.
“It is with deep and profound sadness that we share the news of Jeff Beck’s passing,” the family said in a statement, per The Hollywood Reporter. “After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family asks for privacy while they process this tremendous loss.”
Two months after Beck died, his colleagues and friends came together to arrange a tribute concert to honor his legacy.

Where To Watch Jeff Beck’s Tribute Concert
As of press time, Clapton and his team have not confirmed whether the tribute concert will be live-streamed. However, the organizers already revealed that fans who would opt to watch the show personally could support Beck’s environmentalism.
“Surplus income from the two shows will be donated to the Folly Wildlife Rescue, a charity based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, which rescue and rehabilitate injured, orphaned and distressed wild animals. Jeff Beck was one of the charity’s patrons, alongside Sandra Beck and Depp,” Classic Rock confirmed.
After Beck’s death, Paul McCartney shared their unreleased collaboration, “Why Are They Cutting Down the Rainforest?” on Twitter.
