Blues Boy Makes It To Carnegie Hall

Joe Bonamassa Brings His All-Acoustic Performance to Carnegie Hall in January 2016

Jul 20, 2015, 11:13 ET from Joe Bonamassa

LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Joe Bonamassa will perform live at the iconic Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 21 and January 22, 2016 as an all-acoustic evening which be filmed for a future DVD release and will air on PBS and Palladia.

Everyone knows the old saying about how to get to Carnegie Hall, but Bonamassa has truly lived that advice. His entire life and musical career has been practice for this moment, and a young blues-boy is finally making good on his childhood dream of playing one of the most hallowed stages in the world.

For these two unique shows, Bonamassa promises an incredibly special evening of extraordinary music and new arrangements of favorite songs. He will be joined by an all-star ensemble of world-class musicians including the acclaimed Chinese cellist and erhuist Tina Guo, who's repertoire stretches from classical to heavy metal; and Hossam Ramzy, the Egyptian percussionist and composer, who has performed on dozens of film soundtracks and records, and was the percussionist on Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's No Quarter: Unledded Tour.

Bonamassa promises to set the night ablaze with his acoustic guitar wizardry on the same revered stage that has been home to legends like Led Zeppelin and Stevie Ray Vaughan, playing a stripped down, all-acoustic show that truly allows his fans a glimpse into his soul and presents a thrilling and musically dangerous spectacle akin to walking a tightrope without a net. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to watch Joe Bonamassa join the pantheon of musical legends to have played this one of a kind venue.
