Following the recent announcement of Joe Bonamassa’s forthcoming studio album “Different Shades of Blue”, released 22nd September, the internationally renowned guitarist is proud to announce four exclusive concerts in March 2015 at the prestigious Hammersmith Eventim Apollo London (formerly the London Hammersmith Apollo).
Planet Rock will run an exclusive 48-hour ticket pre-sale on Wednesday 9th July via www.planetrock.com. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public at 9am on Friday 11th July from the 24 hour box office: 0844 249 4300 and www.eventimapollo.com.
For the first time, fans will have the option to pre-order the new studio album with their concert tickets in a special bundle. This will be available both during the 48-hour Planet Rock pre-sale, and when tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday 11th July.
The 2015 Hammersmith concerts begin a new chapter in the book of Joe, and follow his critically acclaimed “London 2013″ tour, which saw Bonamassa pay homage to his UK fans and unique relationship with England’s capital city.
Currently his only confirmed UK concerts, the 2015 Eventim Apollo dates will see Joe perform an entirely new show. Featuring songs from his new album “Different Shades of Blue” played live for the very first time in the UK, including a sensational horn section, these shows are a guaranteed must-see for “Bona-holic” both new and old, and guitar aficionados everywhere.
Joe and his band will also perform classics from his extensive back catalog, including “Sloe Gin”, “Dust Bowl”, “The Ballad of John Henry”, and 2012’s critically acclaimed “Driving Towards The Daylight” (which reached #2 in the UK’s Official Album Chart).

The latest update from Kevin Shirley on the studio session.
Well, it’s been such a busy year! I’m in Sydney now and have just finished the most amazing and funky record with Mahalia Barnes and the Soul Mates – featuring my good bud Joe Bonamassa (who had his work cut out for him!). Really slamming! I think people haven’t heard this stuff in a long while! Also just wrapping a career spanning project with Jimmy Barnes and I’m sure more of that will come to light in the very near future. But to say I’m fried is an understatement… I need a big break but I’ll have to settle for a hug from my kids when I see them…
An upcoming release date for this is TBA, however, Joe’s latest studio album “Different Shades of Blue” is due out in stores September 22, 2014.

Joe Bonamassa has revealed that he’s to release a brand new solo studio album.
‘Different Shades Of Blue’ is set for release on September 22nd 2014, and will be his first since 2012’s Driving Towards The Daylight, which debuted at #2 on the Official UK Album Chart.
It will be also his first album to feature all-original material, penned by Bonamassa himself.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been involved in the writing on an entire album,” says Bonamassa. “So I decided I wanted to make a completely original blues album. I’ve really had to push myself to make everything I do better than the last project. I know the fans expect it. And I feel like I owe it to the fans to give them an original record after all these years.”
Joe Bonamassa and Rock Candy Funk Party took Conan by storm last night performing their hit single “Octopus-E”. The band appeared on Conan to celebrate their live DVD & BluRay release “Rock Candy Funk Party Takes New York Live At The Iridium”, which is due out February 25th. Take a look at the video below to see their performance!
Well folks, Christmas this year has arrived early! First we get the great news that Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart’s album “Seesaw” was nominated for a GRAMMY. Earlier this week, Kevin “The Caveman” Shirley posted this picture on his Facebook. Kevin was beside himself to see that the DVD he produced went platinum. That’s right, Joe Bonamassa “Live at Royal Albert Hall” is now certified PLATINUM in DVD sales by the RIAA! 2013 has been a great year for Joe and I’m very excited to see what 2014 will bring!
If you live in the southern California area, around LA perhaps, you’re in luck. Next January, Joe Bonamassa will taking part in a charity concert titled “From Hollywood With Love”. The concert is presented by Norman’s Rare Guitars. It will also have some other household names such as Robben Ford and Jimmy Vivino. All proceeds from the show will benefit Los Angeles’s Premier Homeless Shelter. It’s scheduled to kick off at 07:30PM on January 11, 2014 at The Musicians Institute. More information including ordering tickets, can be found online here. A VIP package is available, which does include a meet n’ greet with all artists. We hope you can make this one and only time event!
Nothing wrong with a little shameless promotion! Joe Bonamassa is set to take the road for his fall tour this Saturday, starting in Cleveland, OH! This tour will take Joe across the United States, with the tour ending in San Diego, CA on December 14th.
To accompany Joe on this tour, will be a brand new, bad ass tractor trailer. The tractor trailer, which sports a picture of Joe Bonamassa and the “Bona-Byrd” prototype guitar, has his name plastered across the side. It’s bold colors and superb graphics should help spread the word of Joe while on the road!
If you recall, Joe also has had another trailer for several years with his name on it. But the new trailer now shows the face of the man himself and is definitely more of an eye grabber! When you see the trailer out a Joe show and snap a picture of yourself next to it, we might feature you on the website! I hope you can catch Joe Bonamassa on the road this fall. Stay tuned…!
What a great night in New York City. Spring is here, the weather is warm. And Joe Bonamassa, one of the best guitar players in the world is about to take the stage for a three night run, at New York’s famous Beacon Theater. The Beacon, which Joe has played twice previously, is home to one of his live recordings. Tonight, however, marks another milestone in Joe’s career as he invited friend and special guest Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Go’vt Mule) to the stage to play several songs. Together Joe and Warren started off with a great cover of Crossroads, which then went into one of the songs from Joe’s first studio album, A New Day Yesterday. Warren did a spectacular job on the lead vocals for If Heartaches Were Nickels. To top the night off, the duo played Look Over Yonder’s Wall. An absolute stellar, I mean stellar performance by Joe and Warren. Joe also played great throughout the night in his normal set, which included several of my favorites The Ballad of John Henry and Just Got Paid. Two nights remain at the Beacon Theater and quite frankly, I can’t wait to see what they have in store.
