Never miss another 'John Mayall' show
John Mayall, Buddy Whittington Band
"For over 50 years, John Mayall has served as a pioneer of blues music, rightly earning him the title, "The Godfather of British Blues".
Regarded by many as British blues’ most influential artist, John’s band The Bluesbreakers launched the careers of Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green and Mick Taylor.
64 albums later and John’s captivating and authentic sound is still as vital today is it ever was.
Special guest and long term collaborator, Texan guitarist Buddy Whittington makes a welcome return to the UK."
