Al Green

According to the man himself, the church Al Green practices his ministerial duties in is situated right next to his studio in Memphis—as perfect a metaphor as any for Green’s uniquely sweet and sweaty way of combining the spiritual and the physical. After cutting a series of gospel-only albums, Green returned to the secular on 2008's extraordinary Lay It Down (yes, the title track is as saucy as the name suggests). He adores playing B.B. King's, so you can expect all the hits, plus rarely heard favorites (you’d hope for something pretty special for that ticket price).
