Music superstars Joss Stone and Jeff Beck are uniting for a one-off gig and have chosen Exeter to perform the special show.

It will take place at the city's live music venue, Mama Stones, on Thursday, December 13, and is set to be an evening of electrifying music from the superb soul singer and the legendary guitarist.

Devon-based Joss last performed at the club, owned by her mother Wendy Joseph, three months ago before embarking on a world tour, and is taking time out to return for another intimate show.

In the past Joss has appeared as a special guest on stage with Jeff Beck on a number of occasions including the O2 in February 2010, and the Idol Gives Back fundraising event in America, also that year. In both shows the song they performed together was the I Put a Spell on You, most renowned with Nina Simone. It featured on Jeff's album Emption and Commotion, along with a second song with Joss on vocals called There's No Other Me.

Jeff became a renowned UK guitarist after replacing Eric Clapton as the Yardbirds' lead guitarist in 1965.

He left the band two years later and formed The Jeff Beck Group, which featured Rod Stewart on vocals and Ron Wood on bass. He has since been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the gig cost £50 and will go on sale on Friday, November 30, at 10am. Call 01392 848485.
