Guitarist extraordinaire Joe Bonamassa's salute to the icons of British blues features the unbelievable music of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page! Joe recently paid tribute to his heroes during a short but very sweet tour of Britain – five performances only. This show, presented across 3LPs, was recorded at Greenwich Music Time at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London on July 7, 2016.
Bonamassa has been more influenced by the impact of British Blues than by any other music out there. From a young age, the musically inclined Joe fell in love with the hard-rocking, gritty, and pioneering sound that emanated from early-60's Britain. His admiration for legends Clapton, Beck, and Page reaches far deeper than any other musician from this influential era. For the first time, with this unforgettable performance, he was able to give special homage to the British guitarists who inspired him the most. In fine support are Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (keyboards), Anton Fig (drums) and Russ Irwin (rhythm guitar & backing vocals).
As one of the world's leading guitarists and a passionate devotee to the sacred form of art that is the British Blues, there is no person more qualified to preach this music than Joe Bonamassa. British Blues Explosion Live is a cross-generational musical moment that will be unlike anything else you've experienced. Go with Joe on a journey to re-discover the music of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, and fall in love with the British Blues all over again.
