Guitar Hero Joe Bonamassa is set to perform an exclusive event concert experience at Red Rocks Amphitheater celebrating the music of blues legends Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. This tribute concert will be performed one time only, will feature a special ensemble of amazing musicians and will be filmed for PBS and Palladia.
Material for the show will be primarily sourced from the catalogs of Howlin’ Wolf, one of the most influential Chicago bluesmen of all time, known for his deep, scratchy voice, and Muddy Waters, considered the “father of modern Chicago blues” and a major inspiration for the British blues explosion of the 1960s, a genre that Bonamassa grew up with and that influences his own music to this day. A full performance will be dedicated to a selection of songs from each artist, followed by a 30 minute set of songs from Bonamassa’s own extensive catalog.
CD includes over 2 hours of music and collectible 20 page booklet.
