Joe Bonamassa – Tour De Force

On October 28, 2013 an amazing set by Joe Bonamassa will be released on Provogue Records, an imprint of the Mascot Label Group.

Tour De Force – Live In London chronicles Bonamassa’s atmospheric rise from the intimate club environment of The Borderline, to the prestigious Royal Albert Hall. Each individual evening was marked by a unique theme with different setlists, arrangements and ensembles providing the viewer with four unique performances. His journey begins in the intimate setting of the 200-capacity London Borderline with a three-piece band. Next is a blues-themed night at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, featuring a horns section. He then moves to the Hammersmith Apollo which opens with a short acoustic set before moving into a rock-inspired evening. Finally, at the Royal Albert Hall, Bonamassa treats the crowd to a half acoustic/half electric show of his most popular and well-known songs, featuring the band from his most recent release, An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House. Each night’s performance features a different selection of songs from his extensive career.

Tour De Force will be released as 4 individual Blu-rays or 2DVDs, and also as a limited edition Marshall Amp Box Set.

The top of the amp is complete with all knobs turned to 10, just like Joe likes it.
