Recorded at The Sydney Opera House featuring songs performed from Number ONE album Blues of Desperation
Fans and critics alike have been asking the big question of two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues king Joe Bonamassa – “Will there be a new album in 2019?”
Today, that question is answered with the announcement of LIVE AT THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE, a brand new live album from “arguably the world’s biggest blues guitarist” (Guitar World) featuring recordings from his 2016 performance at one of the world’s most legendary venues. This includes previously unreleased versions of tracks from his coveted No. 1 album BLUES OF DESPERATION.
LIVE AT THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE is also Bonamassa’s newest live album, following the 2018 release of British Blues Explosion Live, which marked his milestone 20th #1 album, and preceded his latest studio album REDEMPTION that took the blues world by storm later that year, bringing him his 21st#1 album on the blues charts.
In addition, to LIVE AT THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE, Bonamassa has mentioned a studio album on the horizon. He’s currently in the process of writing new songs, with plans to hit the studio this winter, and as fans can see from his Instagram and extensive ever-growing list of international tour dates, the diehard musician is rarely without a guitar in hand, curating new melodies, solos, and endlessly developing his craft, never ceasing to amaze his listeners.
