Joe Bonamassa returns to New Zealand for two shows!
Blues-rock superstar, Joe Bonamassa, will be returning to New Zealand in September for two shows in Christchurch and Auckland for his first time since 2016.
Joe Bonamassa is one of the most celebrated performing musicians of today. As a two-time GRAMMY-nominated artist who recently achieved his 21st #1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart, Redemption, Joe is only in his early 40s and has already become a living legend with an astounding multi-genre catalogue of music. Collectively, Bonamassa has over 30 albums to date with studio and live recordings, collaborative albums with blues sensation Beth Hart, and the adventurous side projects Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party.
A prolific writer who is always on the hunt to expand his eclectic musical horizons, Bonamassa has a limitless work ethic whether it’s in studio, on the road, or working with other artists to spur new music. Most recently, Joe shows off his producing chops on Reese Wynans & Friends’ Sweet Release album, Reese’s first solo album in his 50- year career which the critics hail as ‘Electrifying,’ ‘extraordinary’ and ‘classic.’
He’s been featured in several publications from Esquire and Parade to Rolling Stone and American Songwriter, as well as on the covers of Guitar Player, Vintage Guitar, Guitarist and Classic Rock Magazine.
Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Late Night with David Letterman‘s Anton Fig (drums), Nashville recording legend Michael Rhodes (bass), Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble member, Reese Wynans (piano/organ), Paulie Cerra (sax) and Lee Thornburg (trumpet). The band also features Australia’s own Mahalia Barnes, Jade MacRae and Juanita Tippins on backing vocals bringing a whole new life to the show which will feature brand new songs alongside career-spanning favourites.
“I am really looking forward to coming back to play for the fans in New Zealand who have always supported me,” explains Joe. “They are amazing!”
