Rarely do fans get to see what goes on behind the scenes before concerts, but now thanks to JoeBonamassaTV, we get a fascinating seven minute peek into the prep for guitar phenomenon Joe Bonamassa's four night concert event at the beautiful Royal Albert Hall in London. The performances took place during his 2013 Tour de Force, but behind the scenes footage was released to YouTube just last week. Check it out above.
The video follows Bonamassa and his crew from the initial stage setup to the concert itself, transitioning smoothly into a live performance of "Athens to Athens." The song is enough to make us watch the video, with its upbeat tempo and Bonamassa's flying fingers, but it's the rare snippets of candid moments backstage before the venue fills with thousands of fans that make the video a real treat.
Each night at Royal Albert Hall was dedicated to a specific theme ("Power Trio Jam," "Blues Night," "Rock & Roll Night," and "Acoustic / Electric Night,") making it a truly unique and eclectic concert series. Be sure to check out the four disc, live performances available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
