Since the early days performing covers with his brilliantly named seventies band Steakface, Robert Cray has always seemed like the real deal. Around 35 years and five Grammy awards later, the blues guitarist and singer from Georgia is a certifiable legend of modern American blues.
Incredibly, despite bona fide legendary status and four Top 40 albums here, he's never broken the Top Ten on the main Billboard countdown in the US. That said, America loves its blues and the widely (and wildly) respected blues chart has welcomed Robert Cray into its top five on around ten occasions. His most recent record, August's Nothin But Love, was his eighth album since 1995 to make the top three. Consistently delivering, Cray boasts a stellar solo and band career, with his four-piece Robert Cray Band planning a trip to the UK and a clutch of spectacular venues in the spring.
The tour kicks off at the Royal Hall in Harrogate on 2nd March 2013, followed by dates in Nottingham, Cardiff, Cambridge and London, before the final show announced so far at the Sheffield City Hall. The London gig is at the famous Cadogan Hall on Wednesday 13th March.
We have tickets available now, priced £29.50 for most dates and £34.50 for London. Robert Cray's twentieth album, Nothin But Love, is out now.
