ABERDEEN Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) is pleased to announce that Joe Bonamassa will be performing at the AECC Arena as part of his 2013 UK Tour on September 23.

As Joe Bonamassa approaches his 25th year as a professional musician, he continues to blaze a remarkably versatile artistic trail, and amass an authentic, innovative and soulful body of work.

Bonamassa’s career began onstage opening for B.B. King in 1989, when he was only 12 years old. Today, he is hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, and is an ever-evolving singer-songwriter who has released 15 solo albums in the last 13 years, all on his own label, J&R Adventures

Following the release of his live album and DVD ‘An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House’, the internationally renowned guitarist will embark upon a seven-date UK Arena Tour during September 2013.

Bonamassa will perform songs from his classic albums including Sloe Gin, Dust Bowl, Black Rock, The Ballad of John Henry, and Driving Towards The Daylight (the latter reached Number 2 in the UK’s Official Album Chart in 2012).

The highly anticipated tour will show-case a mix of acoustic and electronic selections performed by Carmine Rojas (bass), Arlan Schierbaum (keyboards), Tal Bergman (drums) and Joe Bonamassa (guitar, vocals).

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s managing director, said: “Joe Bonamassa is a great name to add to this year’s line-up. This show adds to the wide variety of events we have already in September; including the 40th Offshore Europe as well as the second Scottish Home Show.”

Tickets for the show are on sale from Friday, priced from £35 plus booking fee and are available from Ticketmaster on 08444 77 9000 or online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk
