Celebrated blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa is hosting a pay-per-view live stream concert event from Austin City Limits Live on April 1, but this is more than just another live stream gig.

For this special show, Bonamassa sought input from his fans regarding what songs they’d like to see him play, and as a result he will be performing some of their most-requested tunes alongside Late Night with David Letterman’s Anton Fig on drums and legendary bass player Steve Mackey, joining forces as a formidable blues-rock power trio.

More details on the “fan-curated” aspect of the show, per a news release:

This event especially goes out to the fans, who via social media, have made their stamp on the evening, selecting their favorite Bonamassa tunes from his unparalleled, extensive catalogue of 24 #1 studio albums and countless productions, to create a very special set list. It will be a new and exciting celebration of some searing hits from his earliest influences as well as amazing original compositions embodying the guitar mastery that he’s best known for. This highly curated set will more than delight longtime super fans as well as captivate new ones.

The live stream set is also the second of two socially-distant in-person gigs on the schedule:

Standard tickets to watch the live stream are $30, with additional options for fans available at this link.

There are a variety of pricing levels available for fans worldwide to be a part of this special “audience.” Tickets to the livestream event starts at $30. Fans may also purchase a $44.99 package that includes a limited-edition commemorative t-shirt, or upgrade to the Deluxe package for $64.99 which also features the Ultimate Video Collection, a 1-year all pass for Bonamassa’s on-demand service which includes 17+ concert releases from Joe Bonamassa, Black Country Communion, and Rock Candy Funk Party – available at any time on most devices.

As part of this unique concert event, fans also have the option to purchase a Commemorative VIP ticket giving them an experience they will never forget. VIP ticket holders will have their photo and name featured in the livestream credits and DVD credits as a virtual audience member.

In May 2020, Bonamassa played a live stream gig raising money to support musicians negatively impacted by COVID-19 pandemic-caused work stoppages, and this upcoming show will once again help those in need. The previous show raised more than $32,000 for Bonamassa’s Fueling Musicians program, and one dollar of each ticket sold to this upcoming Austin City Limits Live show will do the same.

Separate from the live stream gig, Joe Bonamassa also has a handful of safe, socially-distant in-person gigs for late March and early April (including two at Austin City Limits Live):

03/27 – MACON, GA – MACON CITY AUDITORIUM (SOLD OUT)
03/29 – CLEARWATER, FL – RUTH ECKERD HALL
03/31 – AUSTIN, TX – ACL LIVE
04/01 – AUSTIN, TX – ACL LIVE
04/03 – HUNTSVILLE, AL – MARK C SMITH CONCERT HALL (SOLD OUT)

All of this activity comes after the October release of Royal Tea, a new studio album from Joe Bonamassa paying homage to the blues/rock icons that helped shape his career.
