Joe Bonamassa Releasing Tour De Force Live Sets

(Classic Rock) Joe Bonamassa will release a set of live DVDs in October which were recorded during his historic four-night London stand earlier this year, he's confirmed.

The Tour De Force Live In London collection marks the series of performances where he charted his career so far by performing in four venues in the English capital which mean the most to him. And the point of the exercise was to deliver sets of songs he'd never played live before.

Manager Roy Weisman explains how the idea was former with producer Kevin Shirley: "Kevin and I were talking during the acoustic tour this past summer. We realised we'd booked these four great shows. We said, 'Why don't we can the idea of doing a studio record now, and give Joe more time?

"'Let's use it as an opportunity for him to go back on his entire career and do a lot of songs he'd recorded but never played live.' We thought his fans would love that."

Bonamassa started in the 200-capacity Borderline with a three-piece jam band then moved to the Shepherd's Bush Empire for a big blues band show. Next came an acoustic set followed by a rock set at the Hammersmith Apollo, before a greatest-hits night at the Royal Albert Hall.

Each night will be available as double DVD and Blu-ray sets, and there's a Collector's Set featuring all four shows plus a hardback book, delivered in a box that looks like a Marshall amp.
