Hot Date: Buddy Guy’s Got the Blues

APRIL 8 The seductive sound of the Windy City blows into Toronto courtesy of Buddy Guy. The legendary singer and guitarist has been strumming his Fender Strat for more than 50 years; as an inspiration to such artists as Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, he’s considered a major historical link between the blues and rock ‘n’ roll. With an arsenal of expressive vocals, towering riffs and searing solos, Guy’s performances offer an electrifying blend of the blues’ southern roots with a gritty, urban swagger. Massey Hall, 8 p.m., $49.50 to $69.50; call 416-872-4255 or click here to buy.
