Acclaimed American blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa, who is currently on tour in Australia has just released a new live album which is available on CD, DVD, Blu-ray and LP. Live At The Greek Theatre is a 22 track double album (4 LP deluxe edition) which honours The Three Kings, Albert King, BB King and Freddie King. Filmed during his 2015 US amphitheater tour, the release includes a collector’s edition booklet, several bonus features and behind the scenes footage.

Playing on a warm summer night to a large crowd, Bonamassa’s handpicked set list of songs was called spectacular by Premier Guitar; Los Angeles Times said the show had swing and polish and that Bonamassa evoked the signature licks of all three icons while managing to put his own stamp on things.

Songs ranged from blues standards to deep cuts, including Born Under A Bad Sign, Lonesome Whistle Blues, Hummingbird, Let The Good Times Roll, and, of course, B.B. King’s famed The Thrill Is Gone  as the evening closer.

On the shows, Bonamassa introduced a steady rotation of vintage guitars, including four Gibson ES models, a Gibson Les Paul, a Gibson Flying V, two new Gibson Custom Shop models, two Fender Strats, and a 1972 Dan Erlewine custom Flying V named Lucy, originally owned and played by Freddie King and currently in the collection of actor Steven Seagal.
