The Marcus King Band brought their patented brand of blues jams to the Theatre Of Living Arts in Philadelphia on Tuesday. The guitar virtuoso and his band’s El Dorado Tour came through the City of Brotherly Love as King continues to build excitement for his forthcoming debut solo album, El Dorado, produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.
The band played for nearly ninety minutes straight to a sold-out crowd at TLA. King led his band through original staples “Goodbye Carolina” and “Rita Is Gone” as well as fun covers of Willie Dixon‘s “I Just Want To Make Love To You, The Allman Brothers‘ “Hot ‘Lanta”, and The Marshall Tucker Band‘s “Can’t You See”. He also introduced fans to tracks from his highly anticipated new album El Dorado, closing the show with “The Well”, one of three singles available from the album. Judging by the sold-out crowd and enthusiasm of fans, one could assume this band won’t be playing intimate venues like TLA for much longer.
Two videos from the show were able to make their way onto YouTube. Watch The Marcus King Band covering “Can’t You See” and a snippet of their original “Where I’m Headed” below. You can also scroll down to check out a gallery of photos from the concert via photographer Zachary Belfer.
