I've still got the blues

To be honest, there are not a lot of great concerts to visit in Lleida. The main reason is that Barcelona works as a huge magnet and has all the goodies. But for me 160 kilometres is too far away to do regularly on a mid week’s evening.

But today finally I can see a big name in Lleida: John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers. For those who don’t know John: he is mostly famous for having some great talent in his Bluesbreakers as Clapton and Jack Bruce (Cream), Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac), Andy Fraser (Free), and Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones). Besides that he also knows quite well how to play the blues.

I am really looking forward to this concert, though he could have chosen a better concert hall than the Wonder mega disco outside the city. I prefer to listen my Chicago-style blues in a place with more atmosphere as the Escorxador.
