Plus very special guests King King.
Blues legend John Mayall returns for his 80th anniversary tour with special guests King King in this explosive blues bill.
Sporting the formidable title ‘Godfather of British Blues’ and an OBE, John Mayall is regarded by many as blues’ most influential artist. His pioneering band The Bluesbreakers launched the careers of band members Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. 45 albums later and John is still giving life to his captivating and authentic sounds.
John Mayall is joined by King King, a revolutionary blues band with an electrifying rock/funk twist. Crowned ‘Best Blues Band’ for two years running at the British Blues Awards, King King boasts a string of awards including No. 3 in the top 20 albums worldwide of 2013 by Blues Rock Review.
With one of history’s meteoric blues artists and today’s innovative pacesetter- these two juggernauts of the blues world are not to be missed.
‘From the moment I heard King King’s Heart Without A Soul in July 2009 I was excited about them – and still am. Four musicians, each individually top-drawer talents, welded together to make an indefatigable music machine, both powerful and sensitive.’ (Paul Pond, The Manfreds)
John Mayall’s new album A Special Life is out May 2014.
