Joe Bonamassa, the two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues rock guitar icon announces a new US tour for summer 2018. As the #1 blues selling artist in the world with a record-breaking 19 #1 Billboard albums to his name, Bonamassa has chosen to make this tour his greatest undertaking yet. Known for successfully tackling blues tributes to the likes of Albert King, BB King, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, and Howlin’ Wolf, he has ambitiously decided to make this tour a tribute to classic country music.
This limited run of summer shows will honor the writings of the original country music legends Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, George Jones, and Hank Williams. Bonamassa will put his own signature blues rock spin on these timeless country classics. The tour makes a stop at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Saturday, July 28.
Bonamassa’s band is filled with award-winning musicians, including Australian Country Star Troy Cassar-Daly, Michael Rhodes (Academy of Country Music’s 2016 Bass Player), Reese Wynans (Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee and member of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s Double Trouble), Anton Fig (esteemed drummer of David Letterman’s House Band) and Mahalia Barnes (celebrated Australian rock singer and daughter of Jimmy Barnes).
