Colin James is coming to Mission’s Clarke Theatre on May 10.

The show, called Colin James Up Close and Personal: An Acoustic Tour, is being brought to Mission by Rock.It Boy Entertainment.

Canada’s Colin James burst onto the music scene a quarter century ago, becoming an instant rock guitar hero. Being mentored by the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan laid a solid foundation readily apparent throughout his stellar career, which includes an acclaimed blues album and the lead role in swing revival.  A multi-platinum artist many times over, James has written memorable hit songs and given us distinctive covers of timeless classics; among them, Just Came Back, Why’d You Lie, Five Long Years and Voodoo Thing.

He has been nominated for 15 Juno Awards, winning six of them including Most Promising Male Vocalist of the Year (1989), Single of the Year for “Just Came Back” (1991), Male Vocalist of the Year (1991), Male Vocalist of the Year (1996), Best Blues Album for National Steel (1998) and Best Producer for Let’s Shout and C’mon with the C’mon from Colin James and the Little Big Band II (1999).

Opening for James is Chris Caddell.

Caddell takes you back to a time when guitarists were superheroes. His signature rasp and guitar wizardry are unmistakable in the addictive Through My Hands (Electric), the blue-collar anthem Workin, Through The Wreckage and People Get Ready an insightful and soulful cover of the Curtis Mayfield classic.

The concert is set for May 10 at the Clarke Theatre, 33700 Prentis Avenue, Mission. Tickets are $42.50and are available at all Ticketmaster locations.

Doors  open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.
