Marcus King + Ida Mae Forum Review 29/3/23


"He may be a young man, but he has an old soul; his guitar solos would not sound out of place on Chess Blues from the 50s or Southern Rock from the 70s, while his voice is drenched in the Stax Soul sound of the 60s. With an eight-piece line-up including a horn section, Marcus is well able to push all those stylistic boundaries."

Following both last year's reimagined versions of Spotify singles 'Crazy' and 'It's Too Late' and his critically acclaimed August release, 'Young Blood', guitar prodigy Marcus King and his band returned to the UK and Europe this month, bringing his stadium-sized show full of Country, Soul, Blues and Rock 'n' Roll on a thirteen-date The Young Blood Tour, so read today not only Gary Smith's complete review of London's O2 Forum leg from last Tuesday, including support from Ida Mae, but also check out Les Linyard's superb photos plus our 'Beautiful Stranger' Video Of The Day, filmed on the night.
