Joe Bonamassa announces U.S. tour dates for summer 2020, as he heads out on the road for his extensive spring U.S. tour. The newly announced dates will include performances at the coveted Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, two nights at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, and a selection of other major venues in California and Utah. Hailed internationally as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.
Tickets for the newly announced dates go to special fan club pre-sale on February 25 and are on sale to the public February 28 at 10am local time via jbonamassa.com/tour-dates.
This summer’s performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre mark the seventh consecutive year Bonamassa will be performing at the revered venue. To celebrate, he’ll be pulling out all the stops and curating a special live engagement featuring the prestigious Colorado Symphony. The unique collaboration will delight fans new and old as Joe reimagines fan favorites from various parts of his catalogue, including new tracks from his upcoming studio album. Driven by the orchestral arrangements of some of the world’s leading classical composers and Hollywood movie orchestrators, Bonamassa will give both acoustic and electric renditions of his essential tracks. This unforgettable performance will be exclusive to the majestic open-air amphitheater, to be filmed and recorded for a later release.
As part of his entrepreneurial and philanthropic endeavors, this summer he will embark on his second annual Mediterranean cruise, co-headlining with Ian Anderson Presents Jethro Tull, and featuring performances from Walter Trout, Marc Broussard, Samantha Fish, Ana Popovic and dozens more blues artists. In addition, Bonamassa has also hosted six sold out Caribbean music festival cruises, raising funds and awareness for his music education non-profit, Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation. KTBA aims to conserve the art of music in schools by funding projects, scholarships, and grants that preserve music education for the next generation. Just announced this week, the seventh edition of the Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea festival is slated for March 8-12, 2021 sailing from Miami to Ocho Rios, Jamaica with a star-studded line-up.
