Buddy Guy has moved the remaining dates of his 2023 farewell tour to 2024, citing a “standard medical issue” and advice from his medical team. The blues guitar legend, who turned 87 on July 30, began the tour in February. The news of the move now gives him significant time off and follows previous dates that were already moved to April-May. His most recent concert took place on September 16. Tickets for the Damn Right Farewell Tour are available here.

Guy’s 2018 album, The Blues Is Alive and Well, earned the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album. He released The Blues Don’t Lie in 2022.

The recipient of a 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Guy’s career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include eight Grammy Awards, 37 Blues Music Awards, 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.

    One of the most unaffected human beings that I have ever met. I saw him in Atlanta in the 1990s and as I was there early I was waiting in the lobby when a man comes out to smoke a cigarette. I started to tell him I had been looking forward to this venue as I was a big Buddy Guy fan when I suddenly realized that I was talking to Buddy Guy. An experience that I’ll never forget.

    I saw him when he toured with the Stones. His show a few weeks ago at the Hollywood Bowl was outstanding! I could’ve listened to him for hours. His showmanship, humor, and even nastiness were the best. Enjoyed the show so much that I’ve now arranged to fly from L.A. to Pompano Beach to see him again 10/22 and i got 2nd row seats front and center. Hope he gets better by then. He is a true treasure.
