Overview

Buddy Guy is THE guy. The most electrifying blues guitarist of all time, he’s received every major musical honor you can imagine: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Grammy Awards. Presidential National Medal of Arts. With his trusty Fender Stratocaster, he’s influenced everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton. He’ll be joined by super-special guest Mavis Staples, the inimitable soul powerhouse and civil rights activist. Don’t miss the chance to witness these two living legends live on stage.

“If you cut Buddy Guy open he would bleed blue.”

–Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

“Mavis Staples is the most underrated diva of the century. She has an almost superhuman ability to implant the pure power of passion and emotion.”
