Blues-Rock Master Delivers Tribute to The Three Kings of the Blues (Albert, Freddie & B.B.) Filmed at the Greek Theatre in August 2015

In September 2016, Grammy-nominated blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa delivers Live at the Greek Theatre, a tribute to three of the greatest bluesmen to ever live – Albert King, B.B. King, and Freddie King. Live at the Greek Theatre showcases "The Three Kings" tour of 2015; a 14-date US amphitheater tour that culminated at famed Los Angeles venue The Greek. Bonamassa celebrates the trio of blues icons with over two hours of some the greatest blues songs ever written.

Songs ranged from blues standards to deep cuts, including "Born Under A Bad Sign," "Lonesome Whistle Blues," "Hummingbird," "Let The Good Times Roll," and, of course, B.B. King's famed "The Thrill Is Gone" as the evening closer. For Bonamassa, the tour's importance deepened significantly when B.B., his friend and mentor, passed away two months before it began. "My only regret is that B.B. was not alive to see it," said Bonamassa.

Bonamassa introduced a steady rotation of vintage guitars, including four Gibson ES models, a Gibson Les Paul, a Gibson Flying V, two new Gibson Custom Shop models, two Fender Strats, and a 1972 Dan Erlewine custom Flying V named "Lucy," originally owned and played by Freddie King. The 11-piece band included Anton Fig (drums), Kirk Fletcher (guitar), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), Nick Lane (trombone), and a trio of backup singers including Mahalia Barnes, Jade MacRae, and Juanita Tippins.

Live at the Greek Theatre continues Bonamassa's tradition of honoring incredible concert venues like the Royal Albert Hall, the Vienna Opera House, Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and the Beacon Theater. This tour was a continuation of the celebration of our blues heritage, which began with the 2014 production of Joe Bonamassa Muddy Wolf at Red Rocks, a tribute to the music of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf.

Bonus features on the blu-ray edition of Live At The Greek Theatre include Growing Up Joe – A Conversation with Joe's Parents, Riding With The Kings Official Music Video, and behind the scenes footage and photo gallery.
