Blues guitar sensation Joe Bonamassa returns to the Manchester Arena on 10th March 2018 playing a selection of material from Blues of Desperation (which reached number 3 in the Official UK Album Chart) along with select cuts from his other albums which are sure to be amongst fan favourites.
He is, undoubtedly, one of the very best guitarists on the planet and at the very top of his game. And for this tour he will be playing with a personally selected group of the very best musicians around.
Bonamassa plays around 150 shows each year which, along with a relentless recording schedule, mean it could be argued that he is the hardest working man in show business.
The plaudits keep rolling in too. From Grammy nominations, consecutive “Best Blues Guitarist” awards to “Best Overall Guitarist” honour in Guitar Player’s Annual Readers’ Choice Awards, and recognition as Billboard’s #1 Blues Artist, 2010.
Here is our review of the quite remarkable Joe Bonamassa show we witnessed in Blackpool last year…
We cannot recommend his shows highly enough, he has to be seen live to be believed.
