Liverpool date for Bonamassa
Joe Bonamassa wants to thanks fans with a free show at the Cavern Club, Liverpool.
The blues rock guitarist previews music from his British Blues Explosion UK concerts, paying homage to the music of Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page
Joe’s love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration. On Monday, June 27, he performs as a ‘thank you’ to all the fans who helped his career grow from playing small clubs to sold-out arena tours worldwide.
Some of the tracks will be repeated at five special concerts in the UK in July. The one-time only UK concert is billed as Joe Bonamassa in concert: A Salute To The British Blues Explosion.
Joe’s British Blues Explosion concerts are at Hoghton Tower, Lancashire (Saturday, July 2), Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (Sunday, July 3), Bristol Colston Hall (Tuesday, July 5), Greenwich London Music Time Festival (Thursday, July 7), and Newark Castle, Nottinghamshire (Friday, July 8). The dates include two concerts performed at heritage castles (Hoghton and Newark), and a special show at the London’s Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.
Celebrated British Blues guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor is special guest at the Hoghton, Greenwich and Newark outdoor concerts.
When Joe plays the Cavern Club on June 27, he will be inducted into the Cavern Club’s historic “Wall of Fame”, commemorated with a special brick in the wall with his name inscribed on the brick. Previous artists on the Wall of Fame include The Beatles, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me,” said a jubilant Joe Bonamassa. “I’m so excited to be performing the British Blues Explosion concerts for the very first time at the Cavern Club, the same venue where The Beatles first played. It’s the perfect venue for me to showcase the music of Jeff Beck, EricClapton and Page. I hope my fans will get a kick out of it as much as I do.”
