John May­all 17 Oc­to­ber to 26 Novem­ber Var­i­ous UK venues

It’s re­mark­able enough to see an 83-year-old mu­si­cian un­der­take a UK tour as en­com­pass­ing and in­ten­sive as this, de­spite the fact it was John May­all him­self who helped de­fine the sound of Bri­tish blues 50 years ago. If 36 dates with scarcely a day off be­tween them would give most play­ers pause for thought, it cer­tainly isn’t phas­ing May­all. “Be­ing out on tour is very easy for me, it al­ways has been,” May­all tells us. “Peo­ple com­ing out to the tour will have a good time; that’s my mis­sion,” he adds. “Ev­ery time I get up on stage I just want peo­ple to con­nect with the mu­sic and be part of the ex­cite­ment.” The tour is in sup­port of John’s re­cent al­bum, Talk About That and May­all’s trio for the dates is com­pleted by bassist Greg Rzab and drum­mer Jay Daven­port. www.john­may­all.com
