Acclaimed guitarist Joe Bonamassa (BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION) will perform four exclusive London concerts during March 2013. Each show will be specially filmed for DVD and will feature never-before performed live tracks. The four London concerts will chronicle Joe's atmospheric rise from the intimate club atmosphere of The Borderline, to the prestigious Royal Albert Hall. The live in-concert DVDs will be released during fall 2013.
Hailed as the guitar event of the year, Bonamassa will pay homage to the historic London venues he's played by going back to his ten studio albums to perform songs for the very first time. The four London 2013 concerts will individually showcase a unique band configuration that will highlight diverse elements of Joe's style. Each performance will be distinctive with different set lists. Collectively, there will be upwards of eighty new and old songs performed over the four nights that even the most die-hard Bonamassa fan will experience for the first time.
The London run will start at the intimate 200-capacity London Borderline on Tuesday, March 26. Bonamassa will then play the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire and HMV Hammersmith Apollo on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28, respectively, before finishing the week at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday, March 30.
The Royal Albert Hall and Shepherds Bush concerts are currently sold out. Tickets are still available for the Hammersmith Apollo, as well as VIP tickets for the exclusive Borderline concert that also includes the best seats in the house for the remaining three concerts, including the Royal Albert Hall, Shepherds Bush and the Hammersmith Apollo.
"London is like my second home," says Bonamassa. "I want to give the fans attending the London concerts a real treat — a thank you for their unwavering support. Over the years I've received requests for tracks we've never performed live. Now, it feels right that we delve into the back catalogue and dedicate London fans with unique versions of tracks they've never experienced live."
