Joe Bonamassa decided to surprise fans at a Canadian gig last night (4th November) by standing with them in the meet & greet queue - but hilariously he went completely unnoticed.
Like many artists, the blues rock virtuoso hosts meet and greets before his live shows where fans fortunate enough to have deep pockets pay for the privilege to pose for photos and have a quick chinwag with their idol.
A couple of hours before taking to the stage at the 10,000 capacity Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, Joe decided to join his fans as they waited to meet him.
Sporting a Beanie hat, casual clothes and trainers as opposed to the sharp suit and sunglasses he often wears onstage, Joe was able to mingle completely undetected with fans.
Sharing a photo of the amusing moment photo on Twitter, Joe wrote: “When you stand in your own meet and greet line unnoticed.”

Toto’s Steve Lukather, Bernie Marsden, Tracii Guns and Joe’s Black Country Communion band mate Glenn Hughes are among those who reacted to the image predominately with the aid of laughing emojis.
Having played triumphant shows in Plymouth, Nottingham and Bournemouth last month, Joe Bonamassa returns to the UK next April for a show at Glasgow SEC Armadillo and three nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Head to Planet Rock Tickets to check ticket availability.
