The forthcoming UK tour follows the news of Joe’s upcoming live album “British Blues Explosion Live” - released on Friday 18th May, and features Joe performing the music of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

Before the October concerts, Joe plays the prestigious Hampton Court Palace Festival on Tuesday 12th June 2018. Tickets are available from

The October tour will feature Joe performing alongside a hand-picked group of world-class musicians playing material from Joe’s forthcoming studio album (released in September 2018), his 2016 milestone album “Blues of Desperation”, plus classic Bonamassa fan favourites.

"As with every gig I have seen him perform he shows that he loves the music and is as invested in it as his audience is. A brilliant night."

-Music News

"Joe Bonamassa is one astonishing musician – he could play Happy Birthday on two strings and bring the house down – and, boy, does he have stamina."

- Buzz Magazine

"Smokin’ virtuosity."

- The Times

"With most of the blues greats of old now sadly departed, it would be fitting for Bonamassa, who once performed alongside the legendary BB King at the age of 13, to take over the crown as King of the Blues. On this performance you'd be hard pushed to find a better blues player anywhere in the world."

- Newcastle Chronicle

"Electrifying brilliance."

- The Daily Star

"With a versatile band of well-seasoned blues players, he turned a throwaway Led Zeppelin cover of 'Boogie with Stu' into a good time swing version. A masterstroke."

- Sunday Express

"Joe Bonamassa is remarkable."

- Uncut Magazine

"Supremely talented but never to the detriment of his songs, Joe Bonamassa understands the history of the music he plays, but wants to forge his own legacy. He’ll keep taking chances to do that too – and he always seems to get it right."

- Maximum Volume Music

"I was in the presence of a genius delivering his goods to a very appreciative audience knowing that he had given them his best. For goodness sake, catch Joe Bonamassa on tour. You will not be disappointed!"

- Midlands Metalheads

"The best guitarist on the planet at the very top of his game."

- Liverpool Echo

"Joe Bonamassa’s mix of intricate licks from a master’s guitar and punchy vocals accented a virtuoso performance."

- Aberdeen Evening Express

"Tonight Bonamassa delivers a two and a quarter hour display of guitar mastery on Tyneside. Joe continues to go from strength to strength. There is just no stopping him!"

- National Rock Review

"Jaw dropping."

- Lancashire Telegraph

"Arguably the world's consummate Blues guitarist and its greatest exponent didn't just rock the joint he simply blew the roof off."

- Reading Chronicle
