As he enters the third week of his nearly sold-out Spring U.S. Tour, Joe Bonamassa unveils a handful of additional dates for 2023.

Starting with the Capitol Theatre in Yakima, WA on Friday, May 26th, Bonamassa will wind his way across the west, culminating in a performance at the iconic Red Rock Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on August 6th. Capping the summer with a previously announced two-night run with Styx and Don Felder in the northeast, Bonamassa will round out the year with performances at the Hertz Arena in Ft. Myers, FL on Friday, December 1st and Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL on Saturday, December 2nd.

The news of Bonamassa’s additional tour dates follows the announcement of Tales Of Time, a sprawling and expansive live concert film and album featuring material from his latest #1 studio album, Time Clocks. Filmed at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in August 2022, it was produced by long-time collaborator and producer Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Journey). Tales Of Time will be released April 14th worldwide via Bonamassa’s J&R Adventures in CD/DVD, CD/BR, vinyl, and digital formats. To pre-order, please visit

Bonamassa is currently in the middle of his U.S. Spring Tour 2023, which will be stopping at Shea’s Buffalo Theatre in Buffalo, NY for a sold-out show tomorrow night, February 28th. The spring performances will conclude with Bonamassa’s Keeping The Blues Alive at Sea VIII, set for March 13-17, departing from Miami, Florida to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. The festival line-up includes legendary artists like Little Feat, Dion, Bobby Rush, Robert Randolph Band, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Jimmy Vivino, and more. KTBA at Sea is one of the largest fundraisers for Bonamassa’s Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation, aiding in its mission to promote music education by providing grants and resources to schools and musicians in need.
