Blues icons Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan to play in Phoenix in April
PHOENIX — Blues icons Buddy Guy and Jimmie Vaughan are slated to play Phoenix’s Celebrity Theatre on April 5.
Guy released his latest album, “The Blues is Alive and Well,” in June.
The 82-year-old’s 2015 album “Born to Play Guitar” won a Grammy for best blues album in 2016.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Eric Clapton and B.B. King in 2005.
Vaughan, older brother of the late blues singer and guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, has won four Grammy awards, including one for best traditional blues album “Do You Get the Blues?” in 2001.
Guy will begin 2019 with a 16-show residency at Buddy Guy’s Legends, the blues club he owns in Chicago.
In February, he will play a multi-day stint on the Rock Legends Cruise VII before coming back to shore to tour through April 26.
It is unclear for how many stops Vaughan will join him.
Reserved seat tickets for the Phoenix show, ranging from $40 to $95, will go on sale Dec. 10.
