Tickets for Joe Bonamassa at Fox Theater On Sale 5/2
314-534-1111, or in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office. Joe Bonamassa will bring his tour to the Fox with a brand new show for his fans offering two entirely new and exciting band line-ups with Bonamassa essentially opening for himself. The first set will feature Bonamassa alongside the world music acoustic band from his #1 Billboard acoustic CD and DVD, An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House (J&R Adventures). Playing an assortment of rare, vintage, organic and "oddball" instruments, the performers include Gerry O'Connor, Mats Wester, and Lenny Castro who will run through an hour of the signature acoustic performance from Bonamassa's Vienna show, treating the audience to a gorgeously textured "unplugged" experience. Bonamassa will then shift into electric mode for the second half of the show featuring his regular touring band: Carmine Rojas (bass), Tal Bergman (drums), and new touring keyboardist (and fellow Black Country Communion member) Derek Sherinian.
Bonamassa has a full slate of projects coming out this year. On February 25, jazz-funk groove machine Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) will follow up last year's debut album We Want Groove with Rock Candy Funk Party Takes New York - Live At The Iridium (J&R Adventures) - a live DVD/Blu-ray package which includes a 30-minute documentary and an exclusive live companion double CD featuring over 100 minutes of music, all filmed and recorded over 3 nights at the legendary Iridium Jazz Club in New York City.
In May, hot on the heels of their GRAMMY nomination, Bonamassa and force-of-nature blues-rock vocalist Beth Hart will deliver Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa - Live In Amsterdam - the very first live experience from one of music's most powerful female voices and one of the world's greatest guitar players. Against the backdrop of the beautiful, historic Koninklijk Theater Carré in Amsterdam, the performance wows with scorching soul covers from the duo's 2011 debut album Don't Explain and 2013 follow-up Seesaw, originally made famous by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Ray Charles, Donnie Hathaway, Lucinda Williams, Bill Withers, Delaney & Bonnie, Buddy Miles, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Melody Gardot, Nina Simone, and more. This DVD/Blu-ray will feature 22 songs and over two hours of bonus and behind-the-scenes footage.
