JB At RAH Tonight 25/4/19


"An initially shy young Blues guitarist, Kirk Fletcher, was invited onto stage and challenged in a guitar ‘gunfire stand-off’ with Bonamassa, which raged between the two of them in a display of matched musical fury and attack that built to a thunderous crescendo. “Too loud, too many notes!” joked Bonamassa. ‘Slow Train’ was an excellent follow-up to this with all instruments beating a tempo that conjured visions of the approaching freight train chugging along lonely dusty tracks with calming light play on the backdrop of the stage and rhythm leading into an incredible guitar finish." That was part of our take the last time we saw Joe Bonamassa at the Hampton Court Palace Festival in June last year (pictured) and JB returns to his more familiar stomping ground of London's Royal Albert Hall at 7.30pm tonight.
