Blues rock virtuoso Joe Bonamassa will release a new live album and concert film later this spring.
‘British Blues Explosion Live’ is unleashed on Friday 18th May on CD/DVD/Blu-Ray & 3LP (Black/Red, White & Blue) via Mascot Label Group and immortalises Joe’s sold-out show at the Greenwich Mean Time festival at The Old Royal Naval College in London on 7th July 2016.
It was one of just five shows on Joe’s short and sweet A Salute to the British Blues Explosion Tour, which saw him perform the timeless music of three legendary British musicians who directly influenced him; Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.
In addition to the concert in its unadulterated entirety, the DVD and Blu-Ray also boast bonus content such as Joe performing “Taxman” Live at the Cavern Club, Joe being honoured with a “Brick In The Wall”, the British Blues Explosion Explained by Mick Wall and a photo gallery of the British Blues Explosion UK Tour.
“If it wasn't for certain British musicians of the early 1960s, the Blues may well never have exploded into Rock music as we know it today, and indeed may have passed into history,” says Joe Bonamassa.
