Grammy-nominated blues-rock guitar icon JOE BONAMASSA is going on tour in support of his latest studio album release, Blues of Desperation. Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream. He is backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), and Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ) to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.
By exceeding his own vertiginously high artistic goals, Bonamassa has shattered all expectations with his newest record and has reached all-new audiences – no mean feat when you consider his astonishing track record of hits, which now includes 16 #1 Billboard Blues Albums (more than any other artist in history). In 2014, the guitarist received his first-ever Grammy nomination (for Best Blues Album) for the album Seesaw, his second collaboration with blues singing star Beth Hart.
Bonamassa’s stature in the music industry has built steadily over the years. Along with his longtime manager, Roy Weisman, the iconoclastic guitarist built his own successful record label, management, and concert promotion company: J&R Adventures. In addition, his connection to fans on social media has grown to over 2.5 million Facebook friends, over 135K Twitter followers, and more than 158K Instagram followers.
