Grammy Award-winning blues guitarist Jonny Lang is coming to the Lucas Theatre on Sunday, November 20th. Since the release of his 1997 major label debut “Lie To Me”, the then 16 year-old Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. Tickets for Jonny Lang go on sale Friday, August 12th at 10 AM at the Savannah Box Office box office and savannahboxoffice.com.
Lang is touring in support of his latest album Fight For My Soul (Mascot Label Group) – the follow up to his Grammy Award Winning 2006 album “Turn Around. Classic Rock Magazine stated that Fight For My Soul “finds Lang back on top form.” Upon it’s release BBC Radio 2 named it their ‘Album Of The Week.’ Lang has been working on the release for three years with Producer Tommy Sims, who co-wrote Eric Clapton’s Grammy winning “Change the World.” The duo collaborated on the project from the ground up.
The album defies categorization by a single genre. The textured arrangements, broad worldview, gorgeous vocal melodies, and expressive guitar playing are what defines Fight For My Soul. It is unequivocally what Lang aimed to achieve over the long period he has been working on reaching a realized vision. He offers, “Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs. I really like reaching out and connecting with people. For me, this is what it’s all about. It keeps it fresh with different experiences every day.”
Tickets range from $35-$75. A $1 per ticket Historic Preservation Fee will be included for all tickets purchased. The fee is for the ongoing preservation and maintenance of the Lucas Theatre.
