As we reported (second-hand) in July, Cream will indeed re-unite to play three shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden in October. I think I speak for all of us when I say, “Woo hoo!”

Straight from the horse’s mouth:

On the heels of four hugely successful nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall and after much speculation, the eagerly anticipated Cream reunion lands in New York for three exclusive nights at Madison Square Garden. In what will be one of the must see shows of this decade and their only appearance in the U.S., legendary rock group, Cream – Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton, – will play Madison Square Garden October 24th, 25th, 26th, 2005.
