Joe Bonamassa Releasing An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House

Joe Bonamassa has set a March 26th North American and March 25th UK release date for "An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House."

The package will be released in various formats including 2-CD, 2-LP, 2-DVD and Blu-ray.

The release features a show captured during a stop at the Vienna Opera House during a special unplugged tour in July 2012.

Bonamassa explains, "Originally, when I had the idea of doing an all-acoustic concert, I imagined doing it solo. I'd surround myself with a bunch of guitars, tell the background story of each song, and then play it. Kevin believed the show would be more exciting with a band and he got to work. All of a sudden, we had a five-piece group, and 72 hours to rehearse 20 or so songs. It was amazing, different than anything I'd ever done before."

"An Acoustic Evening" will feature 22 songs include Woke Up Dreaming, Around The Bend, Driving Towards The Daylight, and Sloe Gin.

Bonamassa was joined by traditional Irish fiddler Gerry O'Connor, who also plays mandolin and banjo; Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mats Wester on the nyckelharpa, a keyed fiddle; Los Angeles-based keyboardist Arlan Schierbaum texturing the mix with celeste, accordions, toy pianos, and assorted "organic" instruments; and renowned Puerto Rican percussionist Lenny Castro.

Bonamassa will be kicking off his four exclusive London concerts on March 26th at The Borderline, the day after the new package is released in the UK.
