This summer Joe Bonamassa is returning to the main stage for a string of concerts in the US. With dates already announced for California, Colorado, and Utah, today he adds two more shows for Las Vegas, NV, and Cheyenne, WY. Fans have long awaited seeing their guitar hero perform live again, and now they will finally have the chance to reunite. Bonamassa, a man who before COVID-19, spent more days on the road than not every year, has been itching to get back to his busy international tour schedule. Thankfully, as the world continues to work towards a return to normalcy with new health guidelines and continued precautions against the COVID-19 virus, concerts are slowly but surely starting again. When Bonamassa hits the stage at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this year, it will be an extra special show, as he’ll commemorate his 6th year performing there! Tickets to Bonamassa’s Summer 2021 tour are on sale now here.
Bonamassa will be backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Late Night with David Letterman‘s Anton Fig (drums), Nashville recording legend Michael Rhodes (bass), Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Reese Wynans (piano/organ), Paulie Cerra (sax), Lee Thornburg (trumpet), along with soulful background singers to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature brand new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.
Bonamassa is one of today’s top live performers and his enthusiastic shows are one of the biggest parts of his career and a favorite for music lovers worldwide. Hailed internationally as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation and cited by Guitar World Magazine as “the world’s biggest blues guitarist,” Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.
Last year when COVID-19 put the live touring industry on hold, Joe Bonamassa did something unprecedented so he could still connect with fans – he put together a one-night-only show at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN to be live-streamed for fans everywhere. That night he united people across 44 countries worldwide for a phenomenal live music presentation of his brand-new album “Royal Tea” before it was even released. Now, to celebrate the return of live shows, the concert has been re-mixed and mastered for physical release as “Now Serving: Royal Tea Live From The Ryman” on June 11th and will be available to own on CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, and Double LP. The DVD will include a film introduction narrated by actor Jeff Daniels. To pre-order, visit this location. The critically-acclaimed performance includes 12 incredible live tracks, featuring the best from his latest studio release “Royal Tea,” Joe’s 24th #1 record on the Billboard Blues chart, which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. It also includes 3 electrifying tracks from his 20th-anniversary album “A New Day Now.”
There’s never been a more important time to celebrate live music, and what better way to do it than with one of the most mesmerizing live performers and powerful Blues Rock players in the biz. Bonamassa cannot wait to re-connect with his fans on the road this summer, so be sure to get tickets before they sell out, and grab a copy of “Now Serving: Royal Tea Live From The Ryman” for the perfect soundtrack to get ready for the live concert. Bonamassa is back, better than ever, and ready to rock. Don’t miss out!
