Guitar legend Joe Bonamassa joins the Colorado Symphony August 9 & 10, 2020

Feb. 21, 2020 – Denver, CO – Announcing Joe Bonamassa with the Colorado Symphony, taking place at Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre on August 9 and 10. Bonamassa will perform over 14 new and extended versions of his songs alongside the Colorado Symphony.

Bonamassa, a GRAMMY® Award-nominated American blues rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter, began his career at age 12 opening for B.B. King.

Unlike most concerts featuring a rock band and orchestra, this concert will be driven by the orchestral arrangements written by some of the world’s leading classical composers and Hollywood’s leading movie orchestrators. The direction of the songs will be set by the orchestrator and producer with Bonamassa performing both electric and acoustic guitar, and singing within those confines. You will be able to hear the desperate addiction in “Sloe Gin”, the ferocious animated realism of a desperate train journey in “Slow Train”, the Rodrigo-like Spanish influences in “The Last Matador” and majestic landscapes to create a spectacular music event for lovers of all kinds of music. One could say it’s a “classical” concert with moments of very edgy, cutting edge orchestrations.
