This week, our Saturday is dedicated to those who truly know how to shred the axe! This all-day lineup features performances from the best of the best including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, John Mayer and of course, Carlos Santana!
We start our guitar gods lineup with the history of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s incredible influence and revitalization of Texas Blues. His impact on the genre is examined using rarely seen footage, interviews with historians & biographers, and commentary from musicians who performed with Vaughan. Then, we reveal the full, previously untold story of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s glory years from the period between the release of his debut album to his tragic death in a helicopter crash in 1989.
Next, get ready for a few heavenly performances! Eric Clapton is up first, and his show features special guests J.J. Cale, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II and Robert Cray. This concert was a highlight of Clapton’s 2007 world tour and saw the late, great J.J. Cale perform alongside Clapton on five songs! Up next, we have the king of blues, B.B. King. This renowned blues master makes every note count while performing on stage with Terrance Howard, Solange, and Richie Sambora!
But wait, there’s more! John Mayer captivates the crowd with soulful lyrics, convincing vocals, and of course his guitar mastery! It’s performances like this that have gained him worldwide fans and Grammy® Awards. Mayer serenades the audience with hits like “Your Body is a Wonderland” and “Clarity.”
Finally, we end the night with an epic Santana concert! Captured on stage together for the first time since 1973, this energy-packed show features classic Santana songs from the first four albums, including “Black Magic Woman,” “Oye Como Va,” “Evil Ways,” “Soul Sacrifice,” and many more.
