Joe Bonamassa: releases "Live At The Greek Theatre" on CD, DVD, Blu-ray & Vinyl

On September 23rd, Grammy-nominated blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa will deliver “Live at the Greek Theatre”; a 22-track Double CD, Double DVD, Blu-ray, and 3-LP Deluxe Edition 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 on August 29th 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. The release includes a collector’s edition booklet, and several bonus features containing behind-the-scenes footage and more.

Playing on a warm summer night to a nearly sold-out crowd, Bonamassa’s handpicked set list of songs was called“spectacular” by Premier Guitar; Los Angeles Times said the show “had swing and polish” and that “Bonamassa evoked the signature licks of all three icons while managing to put his own stamp on things.” 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.

Showcasing “magnificent guitar playing” (The Morning Call), 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 and currently in the collection of actor Steven Seagal.

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. As with all Bonamassa DVD shoots, the performance at the Greek offered a unique presentation of this historical music. The eleven-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.

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. Both tours gave a portion of proceeds to presenting partner Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation, a non-profit Bonamassa founded in 2011 that promotes the heritage of the blues to the next generation, funds music scholarships, and supplements the loss of music education in public schools. Bonamassa’s most recent studio album, Blues of Desperation, released March 25, marks his 16th #1 Blues album on the Billboard charts, more than any other artist, and landed at #5 on the Billboard Top Album Sales, his highest charting yet in the US. In Europe it charted in 15 countries.

Aaron Marshall: Christina Guessferd - Exclusive Interview: INTERVALS

I sat down with Aaron Marshall of INTERVALS before his show at Brighton Music Hall on March 23 to talk about the band's growth over the past four years and its newest album, The Shape of Colour. Plini made his first appearance on stage on the North American tour at the Boston venue.
It was an absolute pleasure talking to Aaron--he is incredibly articulate and intelligent and his passion for the art he creates shines in this interview. I don't think

I've interviewed an artist yet who is so involved with fans and genuinely wants to share the experience with them, helping them craft their own musicianship along the way.

I have to say that may have been the one thing I admired most about him! Remember... every artist has to start somewhere.
