Blues icon Buddy Guy coming to Embassy
ALT also hosting party at Clyde, Pink Droyd to celebrate 'Dark Side of the Moon'
Blues legend Buddy Guy has announced he will hit the road in 2023 aboard the Damn Right Farewell Tour, making a couple stops in the region, including Embassy Theatre.
The eight-time Grammy winner confirmed a slew of dates in February and March with more to come. One of these dates is a Thursday, Feb. 23, stop at the Embassy, as well as at Anderson on Feb. 25.
Fans will hear hits from his lengthy career, in addition to his latest album, The Blues Don’t Lie.
Guy has been one of the leading proponents of Chicago blues since the late ’50s and has influenced guitar greats such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Joining the 86-year-young Guy at the Embassy will be blues guitarist Eric Gales and blues singer-songwriter Ally Venable.
Tickets are on sale now at fwembassytheatre.org, ticketmaster.com, and at the STAR Bank box office at the Embassy.
