TWO TIME GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock guitar icon Joe Bonamassa announces his new US Fall tour dates for 2019 in support of his all-original Studio Album “Redemption” (J&R Adventures).

Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.

Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Late Night with David Letterman’s Anton Fig (drums), Nashville recording legend Michael Rhodes (bass) and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Reese Wynans (piano/organ) and featuring soulful background singers and fantastic horns to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature brand new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.  Watch the music video from Bonamassa’s latest studio album “Redemption” below. By exceeding his own vertiginously high artistic goals, Bonamassa has shattered all expectations with this record and has reached new audiences – no mean feat when you continue his astonishing track record of releases, which now includes 21 #1 Billboard Blues Albums (more than any other artist in history). Bonamassa’s career in the music industry has built steadily over the years and is only gaining more momentum.
