DATE: Tuesday, Oct. 19
LOCATION: Baum Walker Hall at Walton Arts Center
Joe Bonamassa, backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians, will perform new songs alongside career-spanning fan favorites!
Bonamassa is undoubtedly one of today's top live performers and a favorite of music lovers worldwide. Hailed internationally as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation and cited by Guitar World Magazine as “the world's biggest blues guitarist,” Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.
During the shutdown of live performances due to COVID-19, Bonamassa put his efforts into raising money for his non-profit Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation through the Fueling Musicians Program. This relief fund is dedicated to assisting touring musicians unable to make a living due to the pandemic. Now that venues are opening back up, he’s back on the road where he feels most at home, performing for his fans.
To celebrate the return of live shows, the concert has been re-mixed and mastered for physical release as Now Serving: Royal Tea Live From The Ryman. It will be released June 11 on CD and all streaming platforms, followed by the DVD and Blu-ray on June 18. The special edition double LP vinyl will be released July 9. The DVD includes a film introduction narrated by actor Jeff Daniels.
The critically-acclaimed performance includes 12 incredible live tracks, featuring the best from his latest studio release Royal Tea. Joe’s 24th No. 1 record on the Billboard Blues chart, the album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. It also includes three tracks from his 20th anniversary album A New Day Now.
