The Godfather of the Blues, John Mayall is making his way to Tunbridge Wells with his tour celebrating six decades in the industry.

The shows follow on from the release of his latest album Talk About That earlier this year – his 65th album.

The guitarist, singer and organist rose to fame in the early 1960s with the formation of his band John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, who featured members such as Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Peter Green, and Mick Fleetwood in different line-ups of the group.

Lauded with acclaim throughout his career, Mr Mayall was awarded an OBE for his services to British music in 2005, and was also inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2016.

Having permanently retired the Bluesbreakers name in 2008, Mr Mayall began touring with George Rzab on bass and Jay Davenport, and as a trio Mr Mayall’s songs are as dynamic and bold as ever.

The show is coming to Tunbridge Wells’ Assembly Hall on October 22.
