Guitar legend Joe Bonamassa’s will perform his first pay-per-view global streaming concert event, broadcasting live from the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN on September 20 at 4 p.m. ET. Bonamassa will perform over 90 minutes of new music and old hits and for the first time ever his new studio album, Royal Tea, in its entirety. The official album release date is set for October 23.
While 2020 has created enormous challenges for the music industry and musicians continue to struggle, Bonamassa has been laser-focused on this issue, not only for himself but for his fellow musicians by creating a platform for them to perform. The special After Party Showcase gave the musician a way to continue to give back. Each ticket purchased will include a donation to Bonamassa’s nonprofit Keeping the Blues Alive (KTBA) and the Fueling Musicians Program, which to date has raised over $320,000 and has supported more than 190 touring musicians impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The After Party Showcase will highlight some of the genre’s most talented, emerging acts of this generation, and will feature over an hour of non-stop performances from artists including Ally Venable Band, The Cold Stares, Elles Bailey, Ida Mae, Jared James Nichols, Jontavious Willis, Katy Guillen & The Drive, Robert Jon & The Wreck, Southern Avenue, Tyler Bryant, and Vanessa Collier.
Donations received during the After Party Showcase will be used to continue the program’s mission to assist touring musicians unable to make a living due to COVID-19. The After Party was created to share these talented artists with a whole new audience – an opportunity to increase exposure for certain acts during these difficult times. Bonamassa has personally taken it upon himself to raise awareness and highlight talented musicians who otherwise would not be able to reach these fans due to touring cancellations.
