The Three Kings Of Blues To Be Honored By Blues Boy Joe Bonamassa
Albert King, B.B. King and Freddie King classics will be highlighted in a celebration of blues heritage during a U.S. amphitheater tour this August as part of Keeping The Blues Alive’s tribute concert series.
Celebrated blues rock master Joe Bonamassa is gearing up to deliver a musical tribute to the Three Kings of Blues: Albert, B.B., and Freddie. “Three Kings Tour” will be an action-packed, brand new live show this summer during the GRAMMY ®-nominated guitarist and singer-songwriter’s first ever U.S. amphitheater tour. The show will feature songs amazing blues covers from the three Kings performed by Bonamassa unlike anything he has played before.
This tour is a continuation of the celebration of our blues heritage, which began with the 2014 production of Joe Bonamassa – Muddy Wolf at Red Rocks presented by Keeping The Blues Alive and was a tribute to the music of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.

Backed by a stellar band of blues musicians including Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), and Nick Lane (trombone), the tour will begin on August 7 at Camden, NJ’s Susquehanna Bank Center and will culminate on August 29 at Los Angeles’ iconic Greek Theatre. The Greek Theatre performance will be filmed for DVD and Blu-ray and will be provide a stunning backdrop that continues Bonamassa’s tradition of honoring incredible concert venues like the Royal Albert Hall, the Vienna Opera House, Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and the Beacon Theater. As with all Bonamassa DVD shoots, the performance at the Greek promises to bring some interesting collaborations in presenting this historical music.
A portion of the proceeds from this tour will go to the Keeping the Blues Alive (KTBA) foundation, a non-profit Bonamassa founded in 2011 and oversees to promote the heritage of the blues to the next generation, fund music scholarships, and supplement the loss of music education in public schools.
To date, KTBA has funded 111 music projects and five scholarships across the 50 states, reaching over 20,000 students. In August 2014, Bonamassa played to a sold-out crowd of over 9,000 fans at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. For each ticket sold, $5 was donated directly to KTBA, raising over $40,000 to fund struggling music programs around the country. In February 2015, Bonamassa will headline “Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea,” a four-day music festival aboard the beautiful Norwegian Pearl, which has raised $25,000 for KTBA.
