With Joe Bonamassa

We were invited down to the Royal Albert Hall the other night for an evening of blissfully bluesy riffs in a beautiful venue. It was a great night and Michael was on fine form, with Ashdown custom shop TWEED CTM rig sounding incredible.

Michael's rig inspired our 20th anniversary CTM-30 TWEED rig with the TWEED 112 in stores now, built in the UK.

One of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa, returns to the Royal Albert Hall, a venue he first played in 2009 when he was joined on stage by the legendary Eric Clapton.

Bonamassa has established his position as one of the premier guitar virtuosos of his generation, and has distinguished himself as an incisive and compelling songwriter, a gutsy and soulful vocalist, as well as one of the most popular touring-and-recording artists around, averaging over 100 sold-out shows worldwide each year, whilst amassing a body of work that spreads the already deep waters of the blues-rock form.

These concerts will feature Joe alongside a hand-picked group of world-class musicians playing material from his latest album Blues of Desperation, plus classic Bonamassa favourites.
