Joe Bonamassa – Friday 16th March, Genting Arena, Birmingham

Lights go down a harmonica howls loud and an old blues number makes out like its speeding down a train track as from my vantage point I see Joe Bonamassa and his band, led by torches, walk a small flight of stairs and take up their positions on stage. Across the raised backline drummer Anton Fig on drums is shouldered ...
