Buddy Guy announces lineup of 2016 January residency

Tickets go on sale Saturday Oct 31 at 10AM CT.


6-time GRAMMY Award winner, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, and Chicago Blues legend Buddy Guy is back for his annual 16-show January residency at Buddy Guy’s Legends!

The “Buddy Shows”, as fans have come to call them, will run Thursday through Sunday every week in January 2016 from Thursday January 7 – Sunday January 31. Tickets go on sale Saturday Oct 31 at 10AM CT at BuddyGuy.com

January is the only time of year Buddy Guy does scheduled performances in his namesake club, consistently selling out the 16-show residency year after year, and delighting crowds that have traveled from all over the world. The Buddy shows are a chance for fans to experience one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in our country’s musical evolution.

Earlier this year, at age 79, Buddy released his brand new studio album Born To Play Guitar via Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues charts. He was also honored with a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award.
