I was wondering how that Mobile gig went. My girlfriend and I were just in Mobile October 2nd for Shinedown. We live in the New Orleans area and saw Joe just before thanksgiving. Did the meet and greet before the show and I'm still smiling.
I have said it before and I'll say it again...
I've seen everyone from Aerosmith to ZZ top and everyone in between from AC/DC, Iron Maiden,KISS, Sabbath, Whitesnake, you name it.... Those were some great shows I went to, but my girlfriend and I sat in the Saenger theatre in New Orleans for 20 minutes watching roadies tear the set down. We both turned to each other, mouths still hanging open and said in unison, "that was the best concert I've ever seen"!
Joe Bonamassa is a true perfectionist and it shows in his performance.
I will say this: Enjoy him in these intimate settings while you still can, because once the right single gets released to the right radio station, he's going to reach a legendary status! He's already legendary, just not a household name yet!
