Joe Bonamassa to Take the Stage at Playhouse Square This Fall
Joe Bonamassa, the two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock guitar icon comes to Playhouse Square in support of his latest studio album, Blues of Desperation (J&R Adventures).
Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians featured on Joe's Grammy Nominated album Live At The Greek Theatre including Anton Fig on drums (Letterman, Ace Frehley), Michael Rhodes on bass (Faith Hill, Randy Travis), Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Reese Wynans on piano/organ (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble), Lee Thornburg on Trumpet (Tower Of Power), Paulie Cerra on saxophone and amazing Australian back up vocalists: Mahalia Barnes, Jade McCrae and Juanita Tippins to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.
When Bonamassa's Live at the Greek Theatre's became the #1 Blues album on the Billboard chart last year it marked the unprecedented 17th time he had top spot. "Greek" also landed him his second Grammy Nomination. A touring monster who averages over 100 shows a year, Joe's progression as showman grows stronger every year. After sold out shows at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater and NYC's Radio City Music Hall, he fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams last year with two intimate acoustic performances at New York City's prestigious Carnegie Hall that where filmed for a DVD and Public TV release for later this year.
