Greek Theatre (Los Angeles, CA)
Two of the best bluesmen ever to pick up a six-string team up for what's sure to be an unmatched night of guitar heroism on the outdoor stage at the Greek. Eric Clapton himself calls Buddy Guy "the greatest living blues guitarist in the world," and his explosive electric style and showmanship have influenced legends ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Jimmy Page and way beyond. Guy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, and was also named one of the top 25 guitarists in history by Rolling Stone. Grammy-winning guitarist and singer Jonny Lang was a true child prodigy, who released his first album at age fourteen, and he's only gotten better and more soulful with age. His latest is Live at the Ryman, which captures one of his legendary concert performances. He's also toured with the greats of blues and rock, including The Rolling Stones, B.B. King, Aerosmith and Jeff Beck, along with playing on recent albums by Carlos Santana and Cyndi Lauper.
