That’s some kind of Redemption...

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

I saw his sat night show.  I could have sworn these shows he was doing Covers of classic country music songs.  I thought I saw that promoted.  I am not sad that he did not do that but I could have swore I thought these shows were billed as that.
All that said, he is still the best.  I will say the show was loud as h*ll.  At times I could not clearly hear what he was singing. 
Did any else see it that way? 
Pondering if I want to see him in Cincy in Nov.  Does anyone know if it will be the same show/setlist??

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

The Summer was tour advertised as country tribute but the way I understand it, it didn't end up being obvious everywhere and there was a bit of confusion etc. over it so they decided to switch that up after the first shows. Something like that.


I would imagine it would be a similar set list in the Fall but really don't know. Redemption will be out by then but they are already doing 4 songs from it.
It will definitely be the guitar event of the year though big_smile and it won't be a tribute set tour.

I heard several random quotes about LOUD.  Not my personal perspective though.  I am hearing Joe’s great singing more clearly than ever, but overall composition volume still can blur over his articulation, especially during an emotional crescendo (musical and lyrical together).

Loud, Thus show rocked...I missed the country bit, surely missed talking to Joe beforehand at The Baked Potato as I had hoped (he’s popular after all!) about the plan, and I think things took a dubious turn somewhere.  Puzzling, but I think I understand some of the missing pieces. wink

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

There was NO country music (at my show at the Ryman) but then again didn't care that he didn't do it.  I just recall stuff on the web billing it as covering classic country singers songs. 
I love LOUD music, seen Rush to Metallica and all in between.  Joe show was loud as heck.  I think the venue played a part in it, just all wood walls, balcony with seats under it so the sound got trapped or whatever.  I was not familiar with some of the songs and could not catch all the words.  The ones he played that I knew I got the words but even then the show had a high end to it.  Other then the bass player, no low bass notes.  I would love to see him a bigger venue where the sound can breath a bit better. 
All that said it was a very good show, first Joe show for me.  He can play the F out of the guitar.  I wish I had discovered him 10 years ago instead of last year.  I have missed a lot of good tours it appears.  I come out of the YES/Genesis (Prog) camp so Joe was never on my radar.

You may have come across this already but if not check out Joe Bonamassa - "Heart of the Sunrise" & "Starship Trooper" live at Rockpalast at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYV1jAey720.

I saw Yes in the Round in '79 in Pittsburgh.  Super impressive.

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

That review is obviously for the second night (Aug. 10) show.  It’s content rich and quite positive, but a bit off with the personnel department.  Must’ve been my obstructed view seat that night that hid Troy Cassar-Daley from my eyes and ears, or...I was napping?! roll   ...Not named Lee Thornburg, Jade McRae or Paulie Cerra (not a lady... and left out of a review again when he is so awesome). sad

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

For a dude that played as loud as he did, I won't see another show at the ryman, found it to be a lousy place for music.

My experience was vastly different than yours. G-R-E-A-T... cool cool cool cool cool.....................

Many posts on this forum similar to yours with some sometimes helpful processes for establishing parameters hopefully aiding enjoyment level. 

Loud? Yes! ( big_smile )

Preparedness, location (location location location location location location location) relative to sound versus architecture and room coefficients, and personal audiogram data points against musical notation equivalences; https://www.audiology.org/sites/default … nChart.pdf Thar’s Fizzukz gwon thar B-Youfert!!!

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

FWIW i doubt i would go to a show that I had to consult a musical note to frequency chart first  roll ...but i would prob go to the Ryman even if not the best sound

I hope I am able to go to Joe's next Nashville run...Ryman or not.


thanks for the setlist side by side reo_l

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

I am not one that likes to sit UNDER the balcony.  I think it hurts the sound.  I think that was much of my issue. 
I think he SHOULD put The Thrill Is Gone in all of his shows.  Great live tune!

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

Loved the Ryman from the balcony. Feels like you are right on top of the stage, no poles in your way, no overhangs. The sound quality was outstanding.

Re: Joe Bonamassa Nashville August 11, 2018

over all never a fan of a balcony seat.  The few times I have done it I felt they were playing to everyone BELOW ME.  ha ha
