Marcus King closed out a two-night stand in Atlanta on Sunday with help from a number of special guests. Neal Francis, Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds and 12-year-old guitarist Rocco Gorelik were among those who sat-in with King last night at The Tabernacle.

The visit to Atlanta was the latest stop on King’s Young Blood tour in support of his recently released studio album of the same name. Francis and Ashland Craft each performed to open Sunday’s show with Dean Delray serving as host and providing stand-up comedy.

Guitar prodigy Rocco Gorelik attended the concert as a fan and brought a sign asking if he could play a song. Marcus King obliged and brought out Gorelik during last night’s set. Rocco tore it up on both guitar and vocals in leading the Marcus King Band through a cover of the Stevie Ray Vaughan classic “Pride And Joy.”

Later in the night, Hinds took the stage with Marcus King and his band for two songs to end the main set. The Mastodon guitarist and Delray contributed to a raucous “Ace Of Spades.” Delray sang the Motörhead favorite. Brent Hinds continued his appearance by adding to the set-closing rendition of “The Well” off King’s El Dorado LP.

Marcus King continued a tradition on the tour by collaborating with Neal Francis as part of Sunday’s encore. Francis joined King and his band for a take on The Beatles’ “Hey Bulldog” last night. Neal and Marcus each took solos and shared vocal duties before members of Francis’ band and Ashland Craft loaded the stage for a bit of the Joe Cocker-popularized “Delta Lady” to end the night.
