"Seminal blues titan... temperature rising with knuckleduster licks… played with scholarly fire."

- Classic Rock Magazine

"As with every gig I have seen him perform he shows that he loves the music and is as invested in it as his audience is. A brilliant night."


- Music News

"Joe Bonamassa is one astonishing musician – he could play Happy Birthday on two strings and bring the house down – and, boy, does he have stamina."


- Buzz Magazine

"Smokin’ virtuosity."

- The Times

"With most of the blues greats of old now sadly departed, it would be fitting for Bonamassa, who once performed alongside the legendary BB King at the age of 13, to take over the crown as King of the Blues. On this performance you'd be hard pushed to find a better blues player anywhere in the world."


- Newcastle Chronicle

"Electrifying brilliance."

- The Daily Star

"With a versatile band of well-seasoned blues players, he turned a throwaway Led Zeppelin cover of 'Boogie with Stu' into a good time swing version. A masterstroke."

- Sunday Express

"Joe Bonamassa is remarkable."

- Uncut Magazine

"The best guitarist on the planet at the very top of his game."

- Liverpool Echo

"Joe Bonamassa’s mix of intricate licks from a master’s guitar and punchy vocals accented a virtuoso performance."

- Aberdeen Evening Express

"Jaw dropping."

- Lancashire Telegraph

"Arguably the world's consummate Blues guitarist and its greatest exponent didn't just rock the joint he simply blew the roof off."

- Reading Chronicle
