Joe Bonamassa just released the music video for his track ‘King Bee Shakedown’ taken from his brand new studio album ‘Redemption‘, which is release by Mascot/ Provogue on Friday 21st September.

Grab your dancing shoes and get ready for the daring and energetic new tune from Bonamassa. ‘King Bee Shakedown,’ recorded on the highly-anticipated new album ‘Redemption‘, is reminiscent of high-energy swing and jump-blues, styles artists like Brian Setzer helped to revive throughout the 80’s. The song is a high-tempo boogie complete with booming backbeats from the drums, blaring horn stabs, a red-hot solo from Joe!

If the stylistic exploration wasn’t courageous enough, Joe decided to play ‘King Bee Shakedown‘ as the opener to the majority of his 2018 live performances. With the fans twisting in their seats and the band having a blast on stage, the decision seemed to pay off as it has quickly become a fan favourite on this leg of Joe’s tour.

Celebrated blues-rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa will return to the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London for three concerts on Wednesday 24th April 2019, Thursday 25th April 2019 and Friday 26th April. The three dates follow his October UK Arena Tour.

The three concerts follow the news of Joe’s upcoming studio album ‘Redemption‘ – released on Friday 21st September via Provogue/Mascot Label Group in Europe and J&R Adventures in North America.

The Royal Albert Hall shows will feature Joe performing alongside a hand-picked group of world-class musicians playing material from Joe’s forthcoming studio album (released in September 2018), his 2016 milestone album ‘Blues of Desperation‘, plus classic Bonamassa fan favourites.

Two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock titan Joe Bonamassa returns with a brand new studio album, ‘Redemption‘, which will be released on 21st September 2018 via Provogue/Mascot Label Group in Europe and J&R Adventures in North America.

Redemption‘, Bonamassa’s 13th solo studio album and third in a row of all original material, sees him at his most ambitious and diverse as he continues to redefine and push the barriers of blues-rock. It features a collection of 12 exhilarating songs that reflect the re-birth that he is currently going through. “I’m going through some other stuff in my life I didn’t expect to be going through. It’s a rising, it’s contrition, it’s acceptance, it’s everything. It’s painful, but knowing that there’s a rising coming,” he explains.

The album reunites Bonamassa with some of Nashville’s finest music minds such as Tom Hambridge, James House, Gary Nicholson as well as Richard Page, Dion Dimucci and continues his long creative relationship with Kevin Shirley. “From a Producer’s perspective, this is far and away the most challenging and diverse album that Joe has ever made, “says Shirley

The album was recorded at various locations including, Blackbird Studios, Nashville TN, The Cave Australia, Sydney OZ, Studio At The Palms, Las Vegas NV, Criteria Hit Factory, Miami FL and Addiction Sound Studios, Nashville TN. It was once again recorded with a remarkable collection of musicians including; drummer Anton Fig, bassist Michael Rhodes, keyboardist Reese Wynans, horn players Lee Thornburg and Paulie Cerra, harmony vocalist Gary Pinto, background singers Mahalia Barnes, Jade McRae, Juanita Tippins and Kevin Shirley introduced two extra guitar players, Kenny Greenberg and Doug Lancio. “It was interesting, because having two extra guitar players involved, allowed me to play a certain way,” Bonamassa adds.

Joe Bonamassa, the two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues rock guitar icon, who is about to kick off his UK/European tour, has announced the release of ‘British Blues Explosion Live‘, a new live recording featuring music and footage from his incredible concert at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London in July 2016, honoring the British legends of blues-rock.

Joe Bonamassa’s love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration; and, for the first time, with this unforgettable performance he was able to give special homage to the British guitarists that inspired him, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

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 Bonamassa.

Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page are some of the greatest guitarists of their time that influenced Joe Bonamassa’s career. All three are Yardbirds alumni, and indeed actually all played together at one time in the same band. Jimmy Page went on to form Led Zeppelin, which became the ultimate electric Blues band and both Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck became international superstars in their own right.

British Blues Explosion Live‘ will be available on Mascot Label Group, on CD/DVD/BR & Vinyl May 18, with pre-orders starting today.

The DVD and Blu-ray includes amazing 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.

A Salute to the British Blues Explosion, featuring the unbelievable music of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page! Joe pays tribute to his British Blues heroes during a short but very sweet tour of Britain – 5 performances only. This show was recorded at Greenwich Music Time at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London on July 7, 2016.

Joe 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 edgy sound that emanated from mid-1960’s Britain. This is especially true of the highly innovative and evocative guitar music produced by three of the field’s greatest heavyweights, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. With the deepest reverence for what these three men have accomplished and a true love of their music. 

Joe Bonamassa’s love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration; and, for the first time, with this unforgettable performance he was able to give special homage to the British guitarists that inspired him, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

The five-piece band included Michael Rhodes (Bass), Reese Wynans (Keyboards), Anton Fig (Drums) and Russ Irwin (Rhythm Guitar & Backing Vocals).

Ever since ‘Live In Amsterdam‘ was released in 2014, both Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa kept themselves incredibly busy.

Beth released 2 albums ‘Better Than Home‘ and ‘Fire On The Floor‘, toured Europe and the US countless times, while Joe released a string of live and studio albums, both solo and with Rock Candy Funk Party and Black Country Communion, toured the world many times over, and still had time to hunt for vintage guitars.

They finally managed to block their busy schedules and record a new studio album, called ‘Black Coffee‘. The album is filled with unique twists on some of their favorite Soul & Blues classics.
