I caught the show on Oct 26th. Gary played and sang with so much heart. I felt blessed for being able to experience it. I've seen Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Steve Vai and more. I was amazed that Gary Clark Jr. gave me a show that brought tears to my eyes. It was so beautiful. The view was great and this venue is fantastic.

5.0 star rating Mr. Richard Carmody from San Antonio, Texas


Last night’s show at the Aztec in San Antonio was superb. Gary’s stage presence was impressive. For more than two hours, Gary moved comfortably from one treat to the next. Great range on vocals and his guitar game has a maturity about it. No showboating, just solid command from the get-go. The finale with the Peterson Brothers was an appropriate send off. Highly recommend that you catch this tour.

Gary and his group of musicians were pure art. His music was better than the studio recordings and of course his guitar play was flawless. Everyone raves about his fantastic guitar play but it seems to make his singing go without true merit. His vocals are much like the late Prince. The range is extraordinary!

5.0 star rating Shelly Pedigo from Kansas City, Missouri


I'm 64 years old and have been to a few concerts in my day. I was absolutely blown away by this young man talents. I would say top 5 for me. Felt like I was 16 years old again.

Went into the show with high expectations, and Gary Clark Jr and his band blew by any expectations. This show was off the hook amazing.

5.0 star rating David from Phoenix, Arizona


Third time seeing GCJ - he has matured as a guitar player and entertainer. Amazing light show and a full throttle sound. Also saw Mayer, EC, Joe B this fall - tough to look ahead to next year after that. GCJ and Joe B topped my list. It was a full on pounding experience - if you were too close to the stage it might not have played out as well. GCJ has flushed out a better sounding traveling band. He brought his openers on for encore and there were some sound issues but did not stop the evening. It will be a shame if GCJ graduates to arenas as he is a perfect in the 5K-7500 auditorium. It is a high energy performance - his sound is an amazing cross of traditional blues, some reggae beats, little hip hop, some 70’s r&b, one song even had a Prince like vocals. He melds this all together into a pulsating show that can bowl you over. Go see GCJ - real deal! He played a few more shows then joined EC at Crossroads in Dallas. Now I wait patiently for TTB to come my way.

Straight up emotional fine art blues thru a kaleidoscope lingering at Church. Amazing Talent taking full bloom while elevating spirts incarnation show.

4.0 star rating Sacramento Pete from Sacramento, California


I enjoyed the show. The band was excellent. Tight and professional. Possibly the non Gary solos went a few bars to long, but overall was they are some terrific musicians. Show lights and sound were fit music and venue perfect. I can only recall one reverb the entire night. Only knock was they didn’t play This Land. Wish they would have started the encore with This Land.

3.0 star rating Dotty from Phoenix, Arizona


Had great seats but couldn’t watch him play as the light show took all focus off of the stage. Sound was loud which is ok but mix and distortion distracted the music. We came to watch Gary Clark play. We were unable to do so.

3.0 star rating MS from Phoenix, Arizona


Bass was way to loud and the sound to loud for indoor venue.

3.0 star rating WH from Boston, Massachusetts


Came in with high expectations to see Gary do his thing and walked away feeling that this artist is conflicted in what direction he is going to go to next? Half the show was Gary blowing everyone away with his guitar talent but after every great song moment, he would transition to cuddly R&B softballs like he was wanting to be Stevie Wonder (or something like that?). He also stopped after each song to either chat it up with the crowd or to just walk off the stage to do, whatever? The crowd would get pumped up, then deflated, the pumped up, then deflated again...and again. There also seemed to be struggles with the sound, especially during the first 1/3 of the show. I was wondering if it was just me having a bad night, but when you look around the seats and see them emptying out 30 minutes before the end of the set, that's typically confirmation that others are experiencing the same as you. On the positive, about half of the show was very good...but half isn't good enough for me to ever want to see him live again, unfortunately.

2.0 star rating Guy Arnold from Pittsboro, North Carolina


They had the sound way to loud with way too much bass. You could barely hear the guitar solos and vocals. We were sitting 10 rows from the stage in the center section. To make matters worse they didn't open the gates until 8PM. We missed half of Marcus King's set.

1.0 star rating Disappointed from Chicago, Illinois


Gary has earned the right to expand his field and more than earned hit right to showcase his new album, but he has to play more hits. Making matters worse, the audience spent more time listening to keyboard solos than Gary’s guitar solos. The man on keys was fine but that’s not what people came to hear.
