Buddy Guy celebrates his seventh Billboard #1 album with The Blues Don’t Lie, released this September. He bids adieu to extensive touring at the end of the 2023 tour. The stop in Fort Wayne will feature special guests Ally Venable and Eric Gales.
Guy’s Damn Right Farewell tour will see The Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner performing hits from his entire career in addition to songs from his new album. Amid his core classics you’ll hear new fan favorites from the project, including “Gunsmoke Blues” ft. Jason Isbell, “We Go Back” with Mavis Staples and a collaboration with James Taylor on “Follow the Money.” Guy’s current release is his thirteenth Top 10 Billboard Blues album.
The follow up to his sixth Billboard #1 album The Blues Is Alive and Well, Guy reunited with his Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge, who rejoins him on tour, to bring audience members even more emotionally-charged music with bone-chilling hard-earned lyrics and lessons that continue to garner critical recognition and praise.
The recipient of the 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Buddy Guy’s incredible career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include 8 Grammy Awards, 38 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has had), a Kennedy Center Honors, NARM Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement, Billboard Music Awards’ Century Award for distinguished artistic development, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to name a few.
At 86 years young, Guy proves that it gets greater later as he continues to record and has toured around the world with performances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater and more.
