Blues icon. Soul man. Rock and roller. Robert Cray is all these things – and more. The Georgia-born, Washington-raised musician first picked up a guitar after seeing The Beatles on TV; then, having witnessed Jimi Hendrix perform in Seattle, determined his destiny would also follow a similar path. And so he has: Across the past half-century, Cray has developed into one of American music’s most singular artists.

From forming a teenage garage band, through to striding the stage alongside several of the world’s greatest guitarists, Cray’s story is one of struggle and commitment. Struggle and commitment that led to Cray enjoying phenomenal success – selling millions of albums and countless concert tickets, winning five Grammy Awards, being inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, recipient of the Americana Music Lifetime Achievement Award, designing two signature model Fender guitars – yet, for Cray, what’s always mattered most is the music. Every note he plays counts, every song he sings is delivered as if it is his last: Integrity and intensity are what has guided Cray’s musical career. He has never cheapened his output or delivered a substandard performance. Indeed, his commitment to making music of the highest standard has won Cray both a loyal audience and the respect of many of popular music’s most legendary figures.

A VIP package includes a premium concert ticket, exclusive T-shirt, an autographed 8-by-10 photo, and an exclusive guitar pick tin.
