styx23JOE BONAMASSA & FRIENDS RETURNS THIS SUMMER WITH TWO LEGENDARY ROCK N’ ROLL BANDS - STYX & Don Felder (Formerly of the Eagles) - Stopping at Jones Beach on Sat, Aug 12, 2023 - tix:

Three-time GRAMMY-nominated guitarist and 25x Billboard chart-topper Joe Bonamassa has announced the return of the summer’s biggest rock & roll event with “Keeping the Blues Alive presents: Joe Bonamassa & Friends,” featuring special guests Styx and Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles. The special two-night performance run will stop at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Saturday, August 12th and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, August 13th.. Like the concert series’ inaugural event last year, Keeping The Blues Alive Presents: Joe Bonamassa & Friends will feature full performances from each act before culminating into a jaw-dropping encore featuring members from all three bands.

Felder is a true American rock and roll guitar hero. Not only is he a proud, longstanding member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, having been inducted with the Eagles back in 1998, but he was also inaugurated into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville in 2016 and the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2017. Felder spent 27 years with the Eagles, who own the fine distinction of recording the top-selling album of all time — Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975), which has sold over 38 million copies (and counting).

The news comes of the special, two-night event just after the announcement of Bonamassa’s upcoming release Tales Of Time, a sprawling and expansive live concert film and album featuring material from his latest #1 studio album, Time Clocks. Filmed at the breathtaking Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado in August 2022, with a stunning visual backdrop that served to highlight the beauty of the music, Tales Of Time captures a stratospheric performance by the blues-rock titan, as his virtuoso guitar style and unique technique and flair elevate the evening to an almost heavenly high.. This incredible undertaking was produced by long-time collaborator and producer Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Journey). Tales Of Time will be released April 14th worldwide via Bonamassa’s J&R Adventures in CD/DVD, CD/BR, vinyl, and digital formats.

Cited by Guitar World as “arguably the world’s biggest blues guitarist,” Bonamassa is known for taking risks and venturing into uncharted territory throughout his wide-ranging career. His latest studio album ‘Time Clocks’ marked his most raw, rocking studio album yet, with American Songwriter sharing, “Bonamassa pushes into fresh territory while staying within a blues-based framework,” and “there is more than enough proof in this sprawling set that Bonamassa doesn’t intend to rest on his laurels or take his star status in the blues-rock genre for granted.”

Styx has been performing for more than 40 years. Styx released its 17th album “Crash of the Crown” on June 18, 2021, just days after its 2021 St. Augustine performance. The new album was recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic. The album is available in clear vinyl, black vinyl, CD and on digital platforms.. The legendary band includes James “JY” Young (lead vocals and guitars), Tommy Shaw (lead vocals and guitars), Chuck Panozzo (bass and vocals), Todd Sucherman (percussion), Lawrence Gowan (lead vocals and keyboards) and Ricky Phillips (bass, guitar and vocals).
