Bonamassa played two shows at the iconic New York venue in January 2016 where he was joined onstage by Tina Guo, Hossam Ramzy, Reese Wynans, Anton Fig, Eric Bazilian, Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins and Gary Pinto. So it wasn’t exactly a one-man-and-guitar show. Bonamassa says: “Despite being among the most ambitious things I’ve done, it came out great. It was a typical Joe freak show.”

The album is JB’s second live acoustic release and comes in a number of formats/packages including CD, triple vinyl, Blu-ray and DVD.

Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening tracklisting is:

“This Train”


“The Valley Runs”

“Dust Bowl”

“Driving Towards The Daylight”

Bonamassa has also won yet another award! He is the winner of the Sena Performers European Guitar Award 2017 (SEGA), and will receive it at a special ceremony on May the 21 in the Dutch city of Bergen op Zoom. Bonamassa is currently on tour in Europe. 2016’s winner was Steve Vai.

Bonamassa has already said about the recognition: “This is really a big thing for me, looking at the people who won it before me. Guitar players like Brian May, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather and Walter Trout are such an inspiration. I’m honoured by this.”
