Robert Cray Band Announces October 2018 UK Tour

Laurence Harvey

We at Just Listen To This have seen Robert quite a few times and interviewed the man on his releases. The last show he put on at G Live in Guildford was as good as it gets – spirited singing, stinging guitar, a fiery band sound and exemplary varied setlist. Now we can announce more dates…

The Robert Cray Band have announced an extensive twelve-date headline UK tour for October 2018. The tour starts on Monday 15th October 2018 at De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-On-Sea, United Kingdom. In addition, Robert Cray will headline a show at Indigo @ The O2 in Greenwich, London on Saturday 27th October 2018 as part of Bluesfest London 2018. He will be joined by special guests Don Bryant Feat. The Bo Keys for this show.

Legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter Robert Cray returns to the UK in Autumn 2018 following the success of his most recent album – ‘Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm.’

Considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, Cray’s soulful and creative guitar work has been a dominant force in blues for over forty years, widely recognized and acknowledged by peers and audiences alike.

A five time Grammy winner, Cray has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to John Lee Hooker, becoming one of the most popular artists in Blues & Soul music in his own right, and helping steer and shape its course along the way.

A rare opportunity is in store to witness this genre defining artist again test his talent, fuse it together with that dazzling voice, and perform some of the most powerful material in his four-decade long back catalogue.
