Provogue is pleased to announce the UK release of the companion piece to 2009’s hugely successful DVD release “Joe Bonamassa - Live At The Royal Albert Hall” (originally released in October 2009). Now, for the first time, the legendary concert, featuring a special guest appearance from Eric Clapton, will be released on special 2 x CD and Blu-Ray formats in the UK on Monday November 15th and Monday November 22nd respectively.
When blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa took the stage at Royal Albert Hall in May 2009, he fulfilled a dream he’d held since first picking up a guitar as a kid in upstate New York. The sold-out concert — fresh off the back of his album The Ballad Of John Henry — marked Bonamassa’s headlining debut at arguably the most prestigious concert venue in the world. “May 4, 2009 was a day 20 years in the making,” says Bonamassa. “I have never been so honoured in my life. It was truly larger than the sum of its parts.”
The Blu-Ray edition, which also features an exclusive interview with Bonamassa, presents that magical night in full — for posterity, and for all the fans that couldn’t be among the 4,000 concert goers who filled the seats. The 12-camera high definition, Surround Sound shoot was produced by Bonamassa’s collaborator Kevin Shirley. more
