CANCELLED – John Mayall
We regret to announce that John Mayall is cancelling the remaining dates of his European/UK/Ireland tour. He has been having some health issues, and though he is recovering well, the doctors are recommending that he take some time to rest and recuperate before he resumes touring. We are working on rescheduling the cancelled shows for next year, and will update fans with new information as soon as we have it. Though John is upset about disappointing his loyal fans, we all feel that it is most important to protect his health so he can be well and continue doing what he loves for many years to come. All customers will be refunded via point of purchase.
For over 50 years, John Mayall has served as a pioneer of blues music, rightly earning him the title, “The Godfather of British Blues”. In 2013, John signed with producer Eric Corne’s label, Forty Below Records, and has since been experiencing a true artistic and career renaissance, including a Blues Hall of Fame induction in 2015.
In February 2019 Forty Below Records released Nobody Told Me, the new studio album. As with his last handful of albums, Mayall again shares production duties with Forty Below Founder Eric Corne who also handles engineering and mixing duties.
The album boasts an impressive and diverse list of guest guitarists, all personal favorites of Mayall’s including Todd Rundgren, Little Steven Van Zandt of The E Street Band, Alex Lifeson from Rush, Joe Bonamassa, Larry McCray and Carolyn Wonderland who will be joining the band on tour. Also, on hand are Mayall’s dynamic Chicago rhythm section of Greg Rzab on bass guitar and Jay Davenport on drums, along with Billy Watts (Lucinda Williams) on rhythm guitar and Mayall’s regular horn section, moonlighting from their day job in The Late Show with Conan O’Brien’s house band.
With the usual full calendar of live shows booked from coast to coast and all over the world, John Mayall’s prodigious musical saga continues, as vital as it has ever been.Back to Events
