Posted on March 3, 2017
(Los Angeles, CA) March 3rd, 2017 – Joe Bonamassa, the two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock guitar icon announces a new US summer tour in support of his latest studio album, Blues of Desperation (J&R Adventures). The tour kicks off August 4 in Atlantic City, NJ and travels to cities including Virginia Beach, Boston, Syracuse and Dayton before wrapping at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on August 23rd.
A stellar band of legendary musicians including Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements) Paulie Cerra (saxophone), and amazing back up vocalists all who appeared on Joe’s Grammy nominated Live At The Greek Theatre album will bring a whole new life to the show which will feature new songs alongside some of his favorites.
Relix said of Joe, “as one who can both rock and wail, there’s no one better.”

When Bonamassa’s Live at the Greek Theatre 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.
