MANHATTAN — Blues rock artist Buddy Guy returns to Manhattan one last time with his "Damn Right Farewell" tour as part of the McCain Performance Series at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.
The music icon last played at McCain Auditorium in September 2014.
At age 86, Guy is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee; a significant influence on rock titans Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan; a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound; and a living link to the city's halcyon days of electric blues.
Guy has received eight Grammy Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, a record 38 Blues Music Awards, the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him No. 23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
Tickets are available online at mccain.k-state.edu or at the ticket office in the McCain lobby from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays. Tickets are also available by phone at 785-532-6428 during the same hours. Kids 17 and younger get 50% off the general price of admission for this show.
