Undoubtedly, Beck will perform selections from his new album Emotions & Commotion, a record that might not have seen the light of day. During the making of the disc, Beck suffered an accident with potentially fatal consequences for a rock guitar legend: he chopped off the top of his finger while slicing a carrot.
"It was a really non-glam event," Beck told the Financial Times recently. "I only noticed it when I put it under a tap, there was this chunk hanging down. I thought, at least it's joined on, so I folded it back and then I just temporarily lost it. I crumpled to the floor and thought, That's it. I won't be able to play again."
A surgeon sewed the fingertip back on, but Beck had to finish the album using just three fingers on his fretting hand. According to the guitarist, "There're a couple of dodgy solos in there."
