JONNY LANG PLAYS HOYT SHERMAN PLACE, SATURDAY, APRIL 189/30/2019
It is hard to believe that at 38 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. Easier to believe when you learn he released his first platinum record at 15 — an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late 90s.
His 2017 album, Signs, was not merely a return to the artist’s guitar-based beginnings, but an embodiment of an even more elemental sound. Beyond focusing attention on his soloing prowess, it was about recapturing the spirit of the early blues, where the guitar was front and center, fairly leaping out of the speakers.
Jonny Lang travels to Des Moines on Saturday, April 18 for a can’t miss show at Hoyt Sherman Place. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, Oct. 4 at 10 a.m. and will be available online at Ticketmaster.com, suemclean.com or hoytsherman.org, charge by phone at 800-745-3000, or in person at the Hoyt Sherman Place Box Office.
