News release from the Embassy Theatre:
Joe Bonamassa to play the Embassy Nov. 17
Guitar hero Joe Bonamassa will be in Fort Wayne Nov. 17 as part of his Fall North American Tour.
The show will offer two entirely new and exciting band line-ups with Bonamassa essentially opening for himself. The first set will feature Bonamassa alongside the acoustic band from his #1 Billboard acoustic CD/DVD An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House playing an assortment of rare, vintage, organic and “oddball” instruments alongside performers Gerry O’Connor, Mats Wester and Lenny Castro. Together they will run through an hour of the signature acoustic performance from Bonamassa’s Vienna show, treating the audience to a gorgeously textured unplugged experience. Bonamassa will then shift into electric mode for the second half of the show featuring his regular touring band: Carmine Rojas (bass), Tal Bergman (drums) and new touring keyboardist (and fellow Black Country Communion member) Derek Sherinian.
Recent kudos for Bonamassa include his very first Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album, his twelfth #1 Billboard Blues Album (more than any other artist) and his DVD Joe Bonamassa: Live At The Royal Albert Hall, featuring Eric Clapton joining him onstage, earning platinum status.
Tickets go on sale May 2 at 10 a.m. through the Embassy box office, all Ticketmaster locations, Ticketmaster.com and charge-by-phone, 1.800.745.3000. Tickets prices are $99, $89, $79 and $69. Credit card fees will apply.
