Blues legend Buddy Guy has added a Sydney show to his run of Bluesfest sideshows, with Charlie Musselwhite set to join him at the Sydney Opera House.

After previously announcing a Melbourne show the Sydney show, with full band, will take place Saturday 19 April.

Bluesfest director Peter Noble said, “There is no greater live bluesman performing today than Buddy Guy… he simply is the blues. Every one of the truly great guitar players hails him as the best of the best. 2014 also marks 25 years of my touring with Buddy – yes – I first brought him here in 1990 – the same year Bluesfest started and the year before Damn Right I Got The Blues was released and his career went in to the stratosphere.

“I am advised that Buddy Guy is going to be pulling back on international touring and so, as much as I would hesitate to ever say this is his last tour of Australia, it really is going to become more difficult to get him back to our shores in future.”

Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite play:

Sydney Opera House – Saturday 19 April
Melbourne's The Palais – Monday 21 April.

In other Bluesfest sideshows news, Walter Trout will play the Lizotte's Newcastle Wednesday 16 April. The dates are in addition to his support of Robben Ford at Sydney's Factory Theatre Thursday 17 April and Melbourne's The Corner Friday 18 April.

Suzanne Vega's Brisbane show has changed its date, and will now take place Tuesday 15 April.
