Legendary Blues Guitarist Buddy Guy Plays Palace; PMT Staging Tarzan (Sun., 5/14/17)


1) Buddy Guy is ranked 30th in Rolling Stone‘s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Guy has influenced other great guitarists on that list including Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. He is one of the most successful artists in the Chicago Blues style and was a member of the legendary Muddy Waters’s band. Guy frequently teamed up with noted harmonica player the late Junior Wells. Two of Guy’s top songs are “Stone Crazy” and “Cut You Loose.” Guy has won seven Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 by B.B. King and Eric Clapton.

2) Tarzan returns. Since first appearing in Edgar Rice Burroughs’s novel Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzan has starred in multiple media, most recently the 2016 movie The Legend of Tarzan. The Disney musical playing at the Byham Theater is based on the 1999 animated film of the same name. You probably know the story: Tarzan is raised by apes. Tarzan falls in love with Jane, an English naturalist. Tarzan must choose between his world or Jane’s. The musical features a book by David Henry Hwang and music by Phil Collins. (Yes, that Phil Collins, of Genesis.) “You’ll Be in My Heart” won the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Song. Collins wrote nine new songs for the live musical. It debuted on Broadway in 2006. 2 p.m. Ends today. 101 6th St., Cultural District. (CM)
