GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock guitar icon Joe Bonamassa announces his new US SUMMER AMPHITHEATRE TOUR dates for 2017 in support of his latest studio solo album, Blues of Desperation (J&R Adventures), which was released last March.
Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.
Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians featured on Joe’s Grammy Nominated album Live At The Greek Theatre 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 to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.

By exceeding his own high artistic goals, Bonamassa has shattered all expectations with this record and has reached new audiences – no mean feat when you continue his astonishing track record of hits, which now includes 17 #1 Billboard Blues Albums (more than any other artist in history) and in 2014, the guitarist received his second Grammy nomination (for Best Traditional Blues Album) for his latest Live album Live At The Greek Theatre, his tribute to the Three Kings of the blues.
Bonamassa’s stature in the music industry has built steadily over the years. Along with his longtime manager, Roy Weisman, the iconoclastic guitarist built his own successful record label, management and concert Promotion Company called J&R Adventures. In addition, his connection to fans on social media has grown to over 2.7 million Facebook friends, over 148K Twitter followers, and more than 270K Instagram followers.
