(DETROIT – November 15, 2022) – Multi-Grammy® Award-winning blues icon Buddy Guy will bid adieu to extensive touring with his “2023 Damn Right Farewell Tour” featuring a performance at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre on the campus of Oakland University on Saturday, June 24 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets (starting at $35 on the lawn) go on sale Friday, November 18 at 10 a.m. at 313Presents.com and Ticketmaster.com.

Guy’s “Damn Right Farewell Tour” will see The Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award-winner performing hits from throughout his career, in addition to his latest #1 album The Blues Don’t Lie. Amid his core classics you’ll hear new fan favorites from the project, including “Gunsmoke Blues” ft. Jason Isbell, the forever timely and spellbinding “We Go Back” with Mavis Staples, and a harmonious collaboration with James Taylor on “Follow the Money.”

The Blues Don’t Lie is Guy’s thirteenth Top 10 Billboard Blues album. The chart-topper reunited with his Grammy® Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge, who rejoins him on tour, to bring audience members even more emotionally charged music with even more bone-chilling hard-earned lyrics and lessons that continue to garner critical recognition and praise.

The recipient of the 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Guy’s incredible career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include 8 Grammy® Awards, 38 Blues Music Awards, the most any artist has had, a Kennedy Center Honors, NARM Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement, Billboard Music Awards’ Century Award for distinguished artistic development, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.

At 86 years young, Guy proves that it gets greater later as he continues to record and tour around the world with performances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater and more.
