Joe Bonamassa

Award-winning blues rock star, guitar hero and singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa and his ace touring band will perform

in concert at the [venue] in Dallas, TX on February 26, 2011. The one-night-only show is in support of his upcomin

g, as yet untitled album which will be released on Bonamassa’s J&R Adventures label in March 2011. Bonamassa’s last album, 2010’s Black Rock, debuted at #1 on Billb

oard’s Blues Albums Chart and #38 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, a huge leap from 2009’s The Ballad of John Henry which debuted at #136 on the Top 200. The eleventh full-length solo release and ninth studio album of his career, this

new disc will mark Bonamassa’s eighth collaboration with Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes, Aerosmith) as producer.

Most recently, Bonamassa has been splitting duties with his side project, the English-American rock supergroup Black Country Communion with bassist/

vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Billy Idol, Dream Theater). The band released their debut self-titled album, also produced by Shirley, on September 21, 2010. It ente

red the Billboard Top 200 Chart at #53 and is getting rave reviews. MOJO gave the album four stars and Goldmine said it’s “Possibly, the best hard rock album of 2010.” Music Radar describes it as “a potent and stomping collection of riff-heavy rockers that will undoubtedly stun listeners.”

In addition to the success of Black Rockand Black Country Communion’s stellar debut, 2010 kicked off with Guitar World dubbing Bonamassa “The Blues Rock Titan” and his song, “Lonesome Road Blues,” was incl

uded in Guitar Hero V’s New Blues Masters Track Pack. He was also honored twice in Guitar Player Magazine’s June 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards winning “Best Overall Guitarist” for the first time and “Best Blues Guitarist” fo

r the fourth consecutive year. On June 26, he played the main stage at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago.

In May 2009, he played a sold out

show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, arguably the most prestigious concert venue in the

world and had the added honor of being joined on stage by the legendary Eric Clapton. Released Oct. 6, 2009 and debuting at #6 on

Billboard’s DVD Chart was Joe Bonamassa – Live From The Royal Albert Hall, a 2-disc live DVD capturing the intensity and excitement of that show which Bonamassa calls “a day 20 years in the making.” Also, in 2009, Bonamas

sa was awarded the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the U.K.’s prestigious Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards.

A child prodigy, Bonamassa open

ed shows at age 12 for blues legend B.B. King, who said after first seeing him play, “This kid's potential is unbelievable…He's one of a kind.” Bonamassa’s recording career began in the early ’90s with Bloodline, a rock-blues group also fea

turing Robby Krieger’s son Waylon and Miles Davis’ son Erin. His solo debut was

in 2000 with the Tom Dowd-produced A New Day Yesterday.

Bonamassa averages 200 shows every year, almost always playing to sold-out and ever-larger houses, and with each gig, he comes more into his own as a virtuoso and a vocalist. As he heads back to the road in support of his new album, Bonam

assa remains infinitely passionate about playing live, connecting with his audiences and making new fans along the way like Slash, who recently said, “Just saw Joe Bonamassa on Jools Holland again. He's definitely my new favorite guitarist."
