Joe Bonamassa Releases Huge “Tour De Force” Live DVD Sets

The Tour De Force – Live In London collection documents a series of performances where Bonamassa performed in four venues in the English capital. The idea for each night was to play songs he’d never played live before.

Manager Roy Weisman explains how the idea was formed 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.”

The shows vary. Bonamassa started in the 200-capacity Borderline club, with a three-piece jam band. Then he 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 London’s 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.

The Tour De Force – Live In London sets are released by Provogue Records on October 28. And Joe Bonamassa’s not done in Europe – he starts a European tour with a series of U.K. dates this month.
