The Civic, Auckland
Review contributed by Sean McCarthy
I must admit that when I first heard he was coming to New Zealand I thought “Wow! I must go and see him, what with him being a ‘legend’ and all”, despite not being the biggest fan of the Bluesbreakers.
Then after I purchased my ticket and as I listened to some of his older albums I went through the “hmmmmmmmmms… do I really want to go?”, but in the last couple of weeks as the gig got closer and I read up on his new band I got more excited about seeing him live.
I got even more excited when I discovered that the Auckland Blues Club’s Patron, Hammond Gamble, would be opening the night.
This was a pretty old school sort of a gig.
