This tour not only highlights Bonamassa’s dynamic live performance skills but also his continuous ambition to surpass his already lofty artistic achievements, having amassed 27 #1 Billboard Blues Albums – more than any other artist in history.

“Words themselves are simply inadequate to fully describe the guitar wizardry of Joe Bonamassa. ‘Amazing,’ ‘astounding,’ ‘unbelievable,’ ‘mind-blowing,’ ‘unequalled,’ ‘superlative.’ Yes, they all work, but are still insufficient to convey the experience of witnessing Joe Bonamassa live,” describes Americana Highways.

As Bonamassa gears up for this highly anticipated tour, he also continues to make waves with the upcoming release of his new album, Live at the Hollywood Bowl with Orchestra. This monumental project celebrates his historic performance at the iconic Hollywood Bowl, offering fans a blend of Bonamassa’s signature guitar brilliance with the majesty of a full orchestra. The latest single from this album, “The Last Matador Of Bayonne,” has already garnered acclaim for its emotional depth and narrative, reinforcing Joe’s status as a master storyteller through music.

Live at the Hollywood Bowl with Orchestra is a testament to Bonamassa’s storied career, illustrating his virtuosic blend of blues and rock elevated by orchestral arrangements from some of Hollywood’s finest. This release follows the album’s lead single, a riveting rendition of “Twenty-Four Hour Blues,” and continues to draw fans deeper into Joe’s musical journey. With arrangements by the legendary David Campbell, Trevor Rabin and Jeff Bova and featuring musicians like Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthews Band), the album captures the essence of Bonamassa’s talent and the power of live music.
