War Memorial Auditorium
Starting at $47.00
Buddy Guy & Jonny Lang will be at War Memorial Auditorium
With his new album, Living Proof, Buddy Guy takes a long hard look back at
a remarkable life. At age 74, he's a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major
influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a
pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city's
halcyon days of electric blues. He has received five Grammy Awards, 23 W.C. Handy
Blues Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award
for distinguished artistic acheivement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts.
Rolling Stone ranked him in the top 30 of its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All
Jonny Lang, the Grammy-winning former prodigy instrumentalist who topped the Billboard New Artist chart at age 15, stands now as a mature creative force, made more sensitive yet also toughened by life's adventures. The insights he gained from skyrocketing success at a young age, and the emotions they unleashed, makes Jonny Lang's new album Turn Around the pivotal album of his career to date and links the triumphs of his past to the promise of his future.
