Joe Bonamassa honors "The Three Kings" on Live At The Greek Theatre

Some of the greatest blues songs ever written performed in a celebration of blues heritage!

Grammy-nominated blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa delivers Live at the Greek Theatre, a 4-LP Deluxe Edition tribute to three of the greatest bluesmen to ever live — Albert King, B.B. King, and Freddie King. Live at the Greek Theatre showcases "The Three Kings" tour of 2015; a 14-date U.S. amphitheater tour that culminated at famed Los Angeles venue The Greek. Bonamassa celebrates the trio of blues icons with more than two hours of some of the greatest blues songs ever written. The release includes a collector's edition booklet.

Playing on a warm summer night to a nearly sold-out crowd, Bonamassa's handpicked set list of songs was called "spectacular" by Premier Guitar; Los Angeles Times said the show "had swing and polish" and that "Bonamassa evoked the signature licks of all three icons while managing to put his own stamp on things."

Songs ranged from blues standards to deep cuts, including "Born Under A Bad Sign," "Lonesome Whistle Blues," "Hummingbird," "Let The Good Times Roll," and, of course, B.B. King's famed "The Thrill Is Gone" as the evening closer. For Bonamassa, the tour's importance deepened significantly when B.B., his friend and mentor, passed away two months before it began. "My only regret is that B.B. was not alive to see it," said Bonamassa.

Showcasing "magnificent guitar playing" (The Morning Call), Bonamassa introduced a steady rotation of vintage guitars, including four Gibson ES models, a Gibson Les Paul, a Gibson Flying V, two new Gibson Custom Shop models, two Fender Strats, and a 1972 Dan Erlewine custom Flying V named "Lucy," originally owned and played by Albert King and currently in the collection of actor Steven Seagal.

The 11-piece band included Anton Fig (drums), Kirk Fletcher (guitar), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), Ron Dziubla (saxophone), and a trio of backup singers including Mahalia Barnes, Jade MacRae, and Juanita Tippins.
