Encore! Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theatre - Live from New York (then Providence)

Special encore presentation!

WSBE has just added an encore presentation of Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theatre - Live from New York on Saturday, March 17 at 9:30 P.M., in case you can't get to the TV on Sunday, March 11 at 9 PM. Joe Bonamassa is coming to the Providence Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, May 22, and WSBE has phenomenal tickets to his concert. Support WSBE and see Joe Bonamassa up close.

As Joe Bonamassa grows his reputation as one of the world’s greatest guitar players, he is also evolving into a charismatic blues-rock star and singer-songwriter of stylistic depth and emotional resonance. His ability to connect with live concert audiences is transformational.

In Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theatre - Live from New York, Bonamassa is joined by John Hiatt for "Down Around My Place" and "I Know a Place"; and Bad Company's Paul Rodgers for "Fire and Water" and "Walk in My Shadows." Other songs include "Slow Train," "Cradle Rock," "When the Fire Hits the Sea," "Midnight Blues," "Dust Bowl," "The River," "You Better Watch Yourself," "Steal Your Heart Away," "Bird on a Wire" (we're partial to this title), "Blue and Evil," "Mountain Time" and "Young Man Blues."

Here's a clip from the television concert.
