One Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theatre-Live From New York DVD, PLEASE!

So I go into my local record store: Bull Moose Music, on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at about noon for several reasons:

First stop: "Free Stuff' board and bin, just inside the doorway, on the right. All promotional material is kept here.

I pinned one postcard flier advertising Joe Bonamassa's Maine debut at Merrill Auditorium, Portland, Maine, May 23, 2012, to the partially empty promo board (above a stack of flyers I'd left on a previous visit).


 The Sky is The Limit
Free from external control and constraint, blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa (and long time friend and business partner, Roy Weisman, of J & R Adventures) make career choices without heavy-handed, corporate execs input. This artist is totally independent...and that fact is evermore evident over these past couple of months.

"No Hit" Wonder

It pains me whenever I hear Joe Bonamassa quip about having had no hits off 12 studio albums when he should be a household name!
I first heard his version of modern blues on a warm summers night in June 2010--an emotional, musical experience I will never forget. The music channel Palladia aired Live From Royal Albert Hall concert, filmed in London, May 2009.


Joe Bonamassa Announces U.S. Fall Tour 2012.

The "king of modern blues" and the "hardest working" guy in the music industry, Joe Bonamassa, has announced an additional 26 shows. The U.S. Tour Fall 2012 is set to begin in Dallas, TX on October 30.. Tickets go on sale April 4.

Joe started off the year in Europe, performing for the first time in Lisbon, Portugal, to a sold out crowd. Music lovers in Spain, Russia, and France (to name just a few) were equally receptive. The Opera House in Blackpool, UK on April 5, 2012 closes out the European tour.

After a short respite, the U.S. Tour Spring 2012 begins on the West coast in Los Angeles, CA (Joe's home city) on April 17, 2012.

With a total of 23 city stops, the finish line is on the East coast in Hampton, New Hampshire on May 25, 2012.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to be attending shows in both Portland, ME (5/23) and Hampton, NH (5/25) with a finale in Springfield, MA on November 20.

A complete list of dates and ticket links is available via http://bonamassalive.com/tour/"> http://bonamassalive.com/tour/.

I encourage fans to purchase tickets to Joe's tour ASAP, as these shows are destined to sell out.
