JOHN Mayall, the Godfather of British blues, will play York Barbican on October 29 on his 80th anniversary world tour.
His 34 British shows in October and November will follow tours of the United States, Canada and Europe and the summertime release of his first studio album in five years, A Special Life, on which he goes back to his blues roots but with diversions into rock and Americana too.
The Macclesfield-born blues singer, guitarist, organist and songwriter, who turned 80 on November 29 last year, is joined on the road by Texan guitarist Rocky Athas and the Chicago rhythm section of bassist Greg Rzab and drummer Jay Davenport .
