John Mayall Concert at World Café Live at the Queen in Wilmington


Hardcore classic rock fans, this one’s for you: John Mayall visits World Cafe Live at The Queen July 10. Fans know him best for John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, the London band that, in the early 1960s, produced legendary talents like Eric Clapton, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac, and one-time Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor. Mayall practically invented blues rock. In 60 years of recording and touring, he’s backed great bluesmen like Buddy Guy, Albert Collins and John Lee Hooker. Since Mayall announced his retirement in 2008, this is a rare chance to catch the 78-year-old legend before he retires again. (queentickets.worldcafelive.com)—Mark Nardone
