Acclaimed Singer, Songwriter and Guitarist Gary Clark Jr. returns to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Saturday, March 9th, 2019 / 8:30PM and tickets are on sale Friday, November 16th / 10AM.

To sum up Texan Gary Clark Jr. is more challenging every day. He’s a musical universe unto himself, expanding at a nearly immeasurable rate, ever more hard to define — as a mind-blowing guitarist, a dazzling songwriter and engagingly soulful singer.  He has been compared to guitar icons like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his playing is a powerful and inspired mix of blues, contemporary soul, and hip-hop, and when he's rolling at his best, he sounds like nothing so much as a natural hybrid of both the past and the future of the blues.  An amazing live performer, Clark soon became one of the brightest players on Austin's blues and rock scene.  But Clark is far from just a one-trick pony guitar gunslinger. He can also sing, write, and arrange. Clark was selected by Eric Clapton to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, and a DVD of the show featuring Clark led to a recording deal with Warner Bros. Clark was soon in the studio working on his major-label debut album, Blak and Blu. His next release was the impressive two-disc Live, recorded during an 18-month-long tour. Live better represented Clark's wild, impassioned, and often elegantly graceful live sets. After more touring, Clark released his second major-label studio set, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim. The album debuted at eight on the Billboard charts. Clark notched his first singles chart entry with a cover of the Beatles' "Come Together," which he recorded for the Justice League film soundtrack. His latest studio album is scheduled for an early 2019 release. A man of few words, he’s quietly grateful that the music he makes his way has connected with so many. “To think a weird idea I noodled on at the house has gone to something 40,000 people might hear at a festival is an indescribable feeling,” he told Esquire recently. “As cool as I might try to be, I think, ‘Oh my God, this is real!’”
