Blues guitar legend Buddy Guy is best known as a pioneer of the Chicago blues sound. In the 1960s, Guy was a member of Muddy Waters' band and was a house guitarist at Chess Records. He can be heard on Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" and Koko Taylor's "Wang Dang Doodle," as well as on his own Chess sides and the series of records he made with harmonica player Junior Wells.


Ranked 30th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, he influenced some of the most notable musicians of his generation, including Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan.


In April of this year, Guy was inducted into the Blues Hall Of Fame. He also received an Honorary Doctorate Degree from LSU where he worked as a janitor in the 1950s before going to Chicago to pursue his music career.



Tickets are $69.50, $59.50, $49.50 or $39.50, depending on location.
