Review: Gary Clark Jr. Rocks Terminal 5

On Saturday night, Gary Clark Jr, showed the sold-out crowd that the blues was still alive and kicking.  The young on the scene, blues sensation, has been selling out shows across the country and is playing with everyone from The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney, to Dave Matthews.  This guy means business.  When he takes the stage, his presence is there.  He can shred a flawless solo and has a vocal range like none other. This Saturday was no different.  Clark performed a number of hits including “Bright Lights,” “When My Train Pulls In,” and “I Don’t Owe You a Thang.”  He also performed a few songs off his new album Blak & Blu as well as bringing things down with spectacular versions of “Please Come Home” and “Things Are Changin’.” Gary and his band will play a few more shows this November before taking the winter off.  The band will join Kings of Leon on a large arena tour in February and March before heading to Australia for the Byron Bay Bluesfest and two shows with the Dave Matthews Band.  Below is a list of remaining 2013 tour dates.  A full list of upcoming tour dates can be found on his website here.
