Blues-rock superstar Joe Bonamassa announces the release of his latest live album and film, Live at the Hollywood Bowl With Orchestra, out TODAY via his own J&R Adventures label. This stunning collection captures Bonamassa’s monumental performance at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, where he was joined by a 40-piece orchestra to deliver an unforgettable musical experience. Accompanying this release is the album’s latest music video, “Prisoner,” which he also covered on 2011’s Dust Bowl album. “Prisoner” was famously recorded by Barbara Streisand back in 1978 for the cinematic film “Eyes Of Laura Mars.” This slow-burn ballad is a poignant showcase of Joe’s emotional depth and technical brilliance. Listen to the full live performance recorded with a 40-piece orchestra on all major platforms NOW.

Live at the Hollywood Bowl With Orchestra has garnered widespread acclaim from critics and fans alike. “Playing the Hollywood Bowl was another milestone for Joe Bonamassa’s illustrious career, and he did it in style,” praises Classic Rock Magazine. The album has been hailed as “another example of the high standard of performance that comes as a guarantee with every new Bonamassa live release,” by Blues In Britain, and described as “one of the best modern-day live albums of all time” by Blues Matters, who further celebrated the project by calling it “a spine-tingling, curtain-raiser for what was to be an unforgettable evening.” Record Collector Magazine awarded the album 5 stars, stating, “The setting is impressive. The performance is flawless. What more do you need?”

Powerplay Magazine echoes these sentiments with a perfect 10/10 rating, declaring, “Hollywood Bowl may be his finest achievement,” and adding, “At this point in his career, Joe can seemingly do no wrong.” Fireworks Magazine adds, “This is one of the best, if not the best things Bonamassa has ever done.” The meticulous orchestration and flawless execution have made this album a career-defining release. All Music lauds, “Bonamassa has captured lightning in a bottle with Live at the Hollywood Bowl With Orchestra,” and notes, “It is a truly spectacular listen.”

Live At The Hollywood Bowl With Orchestra showcases Bonamassa’s virtuosic blend of blues and rock but also elevates fan-favorite tracks with grandiose orchestral arrangements by some of Hollywood's finest – David Campbell, Trevor Rabin, and Jeff Bova. “Very few gigs represent my journey in music more than the Hollywood Bowl. I moved to Los Angeles in 2003 in search of opportunity and cheaper rent than New York City. My first gig at The Mint was attended by 5 of my friends and that's all. We have played The Greek Theatre many times since, but the Bowl has always been a dream. The orchestra and the sheer scale of the event and venue is something I will never forget. I am so grateful that we filmed this special event in my life,” reminisces Bonamassa.

Following his standout performance supporting The Rolling Stones at Lumen Field, Bonamassa is gearing up for his eagerly awaited tour this summer. Beginning July 17th in Selbyville, DE, Joe will be playing a set of three shows back to back, including the Great South Bay Music Fest in East Patchogue, NY and the Maine Savings Amphitheatre in Bangor, ME. The eagerly awaited “Blues Deluxe Tour” starts in Albuquerque, NM on August 2nd through the end of the month culminating in an unforgettable two-night performance in Hampton Beach, NH, on August 30th and 31st. This tour celebrates Bonamassa’s seminal albums Blues Deluxe and its chart-topping successor, Blues Deluxe Vol. 2, which earned him his 27th #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, besting his own record for most #1s ever on the chart. These 20 special performances will showcase an electrifying mix of Bonamassa’s classics and deep tracks live for the first time, alongside a band of world-class musicians.
