One of my favorite musicians is coming to Abilene. Joe Bonamassa will be here April of next year at the Abilene Civic Center. I know that is a ways off but tickets are already on sale, I just got mine!

If you've never heard of Joe Bonamassa be sure to check out the video below. He is a blues rock guitarist; think of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and B.B. King all rolled together. Those are some big names and they have all influenced Bonamassa's music in some way.

My boyfriend and I discovered Bonamassa by accident one day while flipping through channels trying to find something on TV. His performance from Royal Albert Hall was being televised and it captured our attention right away. He was incredible. He had about 15 guitars lined up around him on the stage and he played each one with such intensity and passion. Then he sang; and we were hooked. Blown away is a more accurate description.

I was so excited to find out he would be playing here in Abilene next year I wasn't about to put getting tickets on hold. Check him out for yourself here.
