Blues Hall of Fame member and the Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall is pleased to announce his 85th Anniversary Tour headline Belfast show at The Limelight 1 on Friday November 22.

John released his new album, Nobody Told Me, earlier this year, featuring Todd Rundgren, Little Steven Van Zandt, Alex Lifeson and Joe Bonamassa.

“This project has been a true labour of love for me and I can’t wait for people to hear the fireworks that took place,” he said.

Nobody Told Me is an apt title for the blues icon who suffered a recent unexpected health scare shortly after recording the album. But, the legend, who famously takes no days off and carries his own gear on tour, has been given a clean bill of health and is returning to his usual gruelling touring schedule this year.
