Saw him last night. Had front row seats but there's a second "Front Row". VIP package get 3 rows in front of "Front Row". Regardless, 15' from the stage, dead center and, fortunately, the 2 seats in front of us were empty.

Some concerts you want more but are like, "Okay it's over". I could've watched him for hours. I've seen so many of his interviews with other musicians and ramblings about his guitar collection and gear that I felt like I knew him and his personality much better than most performers I've seen.

He definitely has a persona or alter ego when he performs that's not present when he's just chilling. I'll keep this link up for a while but will eventually take it down...two vid's that show the alter ego that's Joe Bonamassa vs just Joe. Watch his hands in the close-up. I'm in awe of his talents:

Great musicians backing him but his keyboardist is a legend. Played with Stevie Ray Vaughn’s band Double Trouble, before Vaughn was killed, and Rock and Roll hall of fame inductee w/them. Read through all the performers he’s worked with! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reese_Wynans

    Thanks. Yes, really enjoyable. Last night of his '22 tour and was heading back to LA until next year. He claimed the last gig is always a give everything you got event. He appeared to have done that.

    Edit to add...I originally had tickets to see him in '20 but was cancelled for obvious reasons. Said he wanted to honor still doing this venue. My original seats were not this good. I lucked out getting primo seating b/c I purchased the minute the rescheduled concert went on sale.

    Sweet. That's, like, the smallest venue ever. Half expected Joe to sit back on the drums.

    Rock Candy Funk Party, from We Want Groove. The drummer, Tal Bergman is a human metronome - I've never heard anyone keep time like that guy.
