Joe Bonamassa

Blues-rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Joe Bonamassa will release Live at Carnegie Hall—An Acoustic Evening on June 23, on double-CD, double-DVD, Blu-ray and 3-LP vinyl. The album was recorded at the storied New York City venue Jan. 21 and 22, 2016, when Bonamassa performed two all-acoustic shows at the hall. Bonamassa performed with new arrangements of fan favorite songs as well as brand new, never-before-heard songs. The video pieces include 104 minutes of feature film and over 45 minutes of bonus features.

The album is available now for pre-order and will be released on June 23. To pre-order, go here.

According to a press release, “The concert was part of a special all-acoustic tour and featured an all-star ensemble of world-class musicians: Chinese cellist and erhuist Tina Guo, whose repertoire stretches from classical to heavy metal; Hossam Ramzy, the Egyptian percussionist and composer, who has performed on dozens of film soundtracks and records, including on Jimmy Page and Robert Plant’s No Quarter: Unledded Tour; Reese Wynans (piano), Anton Fig (Drums) Eric Bazilian (mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, acoustic guitar, vocals), and three Australian backing vocalists, Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins, and Gary Pinto round out the band.”

Live at Carnegie Hall—An Acoustic Evening will also be featured on Public Television and MTV Live (formerly Palladia) during the month of June.

Bonamassa finishes a U.K. tour on April 24 and immediately begins dates in Europe that run through June 20. He has a U.S. summer tour from August 4-27 with North American fall dates from September 20 – December 9. For dates and tickets click here and here.
