JOANNE SHAW TAYLOR OPENS FOR JOE BONAMASSA AT HOGTON TOWER, LONDON GREENWICH MUSIC TIME FESTIVAL AND NEWARK CASTLE

Joe Bonamassa’s love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration; and, for the first time, is pleased to announce that British blues guitarist and singer- songwriter, Joanne Shaw Taylor, will open for him at three of his British Blues Explosion concerts in the UK in July.  Joanne will support Joe at at Hogton Tower, London Greenwich Music Time Festival and Newark Castle.

Joanne Shaw Taylor has established herself as the UK’s number one star in the blues rock world. The girl with the big voice from the Black Country has toured extensively around the world and released critically acclaimed albums, gaining a global fanbase and playing alongside her musical idols.

Billed as JOE BONAMASSA IN CONCERT: A SALUTE TO THE BRITISH BLUES EXPLOSION, Bonamassa will pay homage to the British blues rock guitarists that inspired him – Eric ClaptonJeff Beck and Jimmy Page.  The dates will feature two special concerts performed at Heritage Castles at Hoghton and Newark, a headline show at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London, plus indoor shows in Glasgow and Bristol.  Tickets are available from ticketmaster.co.uk and www.jbonamassa.com/tour-dates.

“If it wasn’t for certain British musicians of the early 1960s, the Blues may well never have exploded into Rock music as we know it today, and indeed may have passed into history,” says Bonamassa.  Bonamassa will play Hoghton Tower, Lancashire (Saturday 2 July), Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (Sunday 3 July), Bristol Colston Hall (Tuesday 5 July), Greenwich London Music Time Festival (Thursday 7 July), and Newark Castle, Nottinghamshire (Friday 8 July).

Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page are some of the greatest guitarists of their time that influenced Joe Bonamassa’s career. All three are Yardbirds alumni, and indeed actually all played together at one time in the same band. Jimmy Page went on to form Led Zeppelin, which became the ultimate electric Blues band and both Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck became international superstars in their own right.

Now, Blues superstar, Joe Bonamassa, will pay tribute to these legends of the British Blues, in a stunning live concert homage entitled JOE BONAMASSA IN CONCERT: A SALUTE TO THE BRITISH BLUES EXPLOSION.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience not to be missed.
