Joe Bonamassa DVD and Blu-Ray Coming Next Month
The home video showcases the sold-out two-night performance at New York City's legendary Beacon Theatre.
Special guests include vocal powerhouse Beth Hart, legendary singer/songwriter John Hiatt and classic rock star Paul Rodgers. Produced and directed by Kevin "Cave Man" Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Black Country Communion).
The DVD/Blu-ray was filmed in HD with 14 cameras and 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound and captures the magnetism and might Bonamassa showcases as a performer. The 2-DVD set features a bonus disc of special features including two extra songs, behind the scenes footage, and photo gallery.
PBS is set to air a shortened version of the DVD as part of its special programming premiering on PBS stations beginning March 3. This special follows up the hugely successful PBS run of Joe Bonamassa – Live At The Royal Albert Hall which featured a special guest appearance from Eric Clapton.
Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theatre – LIVE From New York will also begin airing on Palladia HD on March 30.
The Beacon performance capped a year of achievements for the blues rock titan. His 12th solo album Dust Bowl debuted at #1 on Billboard's Blues Chart and #37 on Billboard's Top 200, making it his highest-selling and chart-ranking U.S. debut to date. Dust Bowl was featured on a number of 2011 "Best Of" lists including #6 in Guitar World's Top 50 Albums of 2011 and #9 on Something Else Matters' Top 10 Albums of 2011. It was nominated for a 2012 Blues Music Award (Best Blues Rock Album) and Bonamassa was honored as 2011's Guitarist of the Year by Guitar International.
