THE ROBERT CRAY BAND

Date: Tue 3 May 2022

Description:

Legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter Robert Cray is set to return to the UK to support the release of his new album, That’s What I Heard, celebrating the music of Curtis Mayfield, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Sensational Nightingales and more, alongside four newly written songs.

Considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, Cray’s soulful and creative guitar work has been a dominant force in blues for over forty years, widely recognized and acknowledged by peers and audiences alike.

A five time Grammy winner, Cray has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to John Lee Hooker, becoming one of the most popular artists in blues and soul music in his own right, and helping steer and shape its course along the way.

A rare opportunity is in store to witness this genre defining artist again test his talent, fuse it together with that dazzling voice, and perform some of the most powerful material in his four decade long back catalogue.

This is the new rescheduled date from Wednesday 5 May 2021. All tickets, including pre-booked venue parking, will remain valid for this performance, even if they have an old date on them.
