KNOXVILLE, TENN. – Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Buddy Guy takes the stage at the Tennessee Theatre on November 7. Renowned guitarist Jonny Lang will also performWith his new album, Living Proof, Buddy Guy takes a 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 achievement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts.
Rolling Stone ranked him in the top 30 of its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
While still in his teens in the mid 1990s, Jonny Lang exploded onto the national scene with a combination of highly developed blues guitar chops and a powerful voice that rivaled some musicians more than twice his age.
And that was just the beginning. Fifteen years and a half-dozen studio albums later, he has evolved into a seasoned musician and a road-savvy showman capable of delivering powerful live performances on his home soil and just about every other continent on the globe.
Tickets are $30.00 plus applicable service fees and are available via All Knoxville Tickets Locations, The Tennessee Theatre Box Office, and by phone at 865-656-4444.
