Fans at Guy’s “Damn Right Farewell” tour will see hits from throughout his career, in addition to his new number-one album. Amid core classics, audiences will hear new favorites, including “Gunsmoke Blues” ft. Jason Isbell, the spellbinding “We Go Back” with Mavis Staples, and a harmonious collaboration with James Taylor on “Follow the Money.”
This tour, the blues album chart-topper will be reunited with his Grammy Award-winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge, to bring audience members even more emotionally-charged music with bone-chilling hard-earned lyrics and lessons that continuously receive critical recognition and praise.
At 86 years young, Guy proves that it gets greater later as he continues to record and tour around the world.
