NEWS: Bonamassa to releasee tribute to the 'Kings' of the blues

ON September 23rd, GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa will deliver 'Live at the Greek Theatre', a 22-track Double CD, Double DVD, Blu-ray, and 3-LP Deluxe Edition tribute to three of the greatest bluesmen to ever live – Albert King, B.B. King, and Freddie King.

‘Live at the Greek Theatre’ showcases ‘The Three Kings’ tour of 2015; a 14-date US amphitheater tour that culminated at famed Los Angeles venue The Greek. Bonamassa celebrates the trio of blues icons with over two hours of some the greatest blues songs ever written.

The DVD and Blu-ray includes a collector’s edition booklet, and several bonus features containing behind-the-scenes footage and more. Bonamassa introduces a steady rotation of vintage guitars, including four Gibson ES models, a Gibson Les Paul, a Gibson Flying V, two new Gibson Custom Shop models, two Fender Strats, and a 1972 Dan Erlewine custom Flying V named “Lucy,” originally owned and played by Freddie King and currently in the collection of actor Steven Seagal.

The eleven-piece band included Anton Fig (drums), Kirk Fletcher (guitar), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), Nick Lane (trombone), and a trio of backup singers including Mahalia Barnes, Jade MacRae, and Juanita Tippins.
