The iconic guitarist was invited to perform overseas by North Korean officials, according to the Associated Press. British newspaper The Financial Times reported that Clapton agreed to the gig "in principle" and suggested the concert take place next year.

The monumental performance is one of many recent cross-cultural interactions between the isolated Communist nation and the West.

On Tuesday the New York Philharmonic Orchestra performed in the North Korea's capitol city Pyongyang. In September the North Korean State Symphony Orchestra is scheduled to perform in London and the English city Middlesbrough.

Clapton is known for the hits "Layla," "Cocaine," "Wonderful Tonight," "Tears in Heaven" and "Motherless Child." Before venturing solo in the mid-'70s, Clapton became known for his guitar prowess as a member of both Cream and Derek and the Dominoes.
