Electric guitar legends Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck are to perform together at the O2 Arena in London next year.

The two former Yardbirds members never actually played together in the legendary band, which notched up hits such as Over, Under, Sideways, Down and For Your Love.

However, the pair have known each other for many years and recently played live together in Japan.

Beck described the experience as a "blast" and said he and Clapton have since been talking about doing a similar show in Britain.

A one-off gig at the O2 has now been scheduled for February 2010, which will also include individual sets from the electric guitar players.

Clapton commented: "It seemed natural to play together again.

"I've always considered Jeff Beck to be one of the finest guitar players around."

The former Cream and Derek and the Dominoes star added that Beck is a friend and "truly gifted" musician.
