Long-time Boomerocity readers know that Boomerocity is a HUGE fan of Joe Bonamassa and have been following him for years. So, it should come as absolutely no surprise to you that our opinion of last night’s show at Knoxville’s Civic Auditorium is that it was, once again, fan-freakin’-tastic!

The precisely two hour long show was full of fan favorites as well as reaching deep into his broad and rich catalog of tunes from the entire span of his career.  These included JB standards like Sloe Gin to newer releases like Oh Beautiful and all sorts of musical gems in between.

One thing I’d like to point out, however, is how Joe treats is fans. I had the privilege of being part of a “meet and greet” prior to the show. There were approximately 30 – 35 of us gathered to meet the man. I listened as he personally and individually greeted each of us as we waited our turn to chat with him and have our picture taken with him.

He was gracious and talkative to everyone one of us who were there to meet him. The function was superbly organized and allowed Joe the opportunity to chat with each of us as we met him. Never once did I see him act like he was annoyed to meet with his fans or sign autographs for us. Bonamassa is a class act all the way.

If you’ve never seen Joe Bonamassa in concert, you’re really missing out on one of the best shows you’re likely to ever see. Check out to see when he’ll be performing in a town near you.
