JOE BONAMASSA is undoubtedly one of today's top live performers. 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.

Celebrating his 24th #1 Billboard Blues Album (more than any other artist in history) and his return to the stage, this performance is sure to be a night fans won’t soon forget! Backed by his stellar band, the set list will feature new songs as well as fan-favorite tracks, and attendees can expect to witness an incredible blues-rock performance in true Bonamassa fashion.
