Joe Bonamassa rolled into Indy on the eve of his latest release Time Clocks. The 2-time Grammy nominated artist is a generational guitarist often credited for bringing blues rock into the mainstream. He has 24 Number 1 albums on the Billboard Charts and the new release will likely push that to 25. His new album lyrically explores a more introspective personal side, complemented by his trademark guitar riffs. Time Clocks also is his first use of Dolby Atmos which will be appreciated by fans of spatial audio. Known for his live performances, Bonamassa is constantly touring. During the pandemic Joe kept busy with live streaming.  His shows raised money for his non-profit Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation through the Fueling Musicians Program which helped financially struggling musicians during the pandemic. A full house welcomed Joe to town as “Welcome Back” played in the background as the band took their place on stage. He started off with “Evil Mama” from his chart-topping album Redemption. The guitar virtuoso showed off his sick skills throughout the evening to the delight of the crowd. His 2+ hour set included both “Notches” and “The Heart Never Waits” off today’s new release. The consummate professionals, the band played flawlessly. It was great to hear the new material and another amazing performance by the blues legend.

Setlist: Evil Mama – Love Ain’t a Song – Midnight Blues – The Heart That Never Waits – Jockey Full of Bourbon – I Didn’t Think She Would Do It – Just Cuz You Can – Pain and Sorrow – Notches – When One Door Opens – Lonely Boy – Ballad of John Henry – Woke Up Dreaming – Sloe Gin
