3.0 star rating Dave from Buffalo, New York


I saw Joe when he came to Buffalo five years ago. The show is stellar the sound was fantastic , this time, not so much the Soundsystem had a massive hum in the left cluster that remained there pretty much throughout the show sitting where I was up in the third row balcony. I thought the sound will be great. It was terrible p the left speaker cluster had a 60 cycle hum throughout the entire show at one point it went away, but it came back . The mix was also horrendous. It was blazing not that I mind out loud show, but it was the mix was all out of context the vocals or rather buried there was no warmth in the low end. The mix totally lacked soul. I was rather disappointed that he did not have his horn players with him . Also, really missed Anton Figon the drums

Saw JB @ Shea last night. First time @ Shea...gorgeous. I found the sound SO LOUD that the vocals and some of the instrumental was grossly distorted which was a big disappointment. When Joe spoke, forget trying to understand. I think the sound techs should set up and actually listen from various points of the audience. Clearly what those on stage were hearing wasn't what the rest of us were.

3.0 star rating John from Little Rock, Arkansas


i saw bosamana at verizon 4 yrs ago.. i think the entire venue was on its feet the entire show. the music you could feel every note, i was exhausted when i left. Tonight no horn section, reduced backup vocals different player, the whole sound seemed off. It was not good. i had been looking forward to this concert since i first heard the date scheduled. i sat in my seat wondering if everyone else was thinking the same thing i was thinking.. i think the crowd enthusiasm to the story.. not intiol he played the last two number , Just Got Paid Today, and Mountain Time was there any life in the audience..there was just no electricity in the air tonight

3.0 star rating John hesson from Little Rock, Arkansas


no horn section, watered down back up singers, poor mix quality, questionable song selection.. there was nothing electrifying about this show, little more than polite applause from the audience/ saw the show a few year ago in an arena. i think the whole place was on its feet for most of the show, every lick from joes guitar was crystal clear and rang through your body fridays show was no match for the previous show.. very disappointing as it was a Robinson Theater. the only life in the show was the closing two numbers./. Just got paid today, and the encore Mountain Time, which was jumped right into without the intro you see on the video from royal albert hall.. i think i actually dosed of one inthe performance.

2.0 star rating Robert from Toronto, Ontario


Enjoyable concert but disappointed Joe didn't play "any" older familiar material like Just Got Paid, Django, John Henry etc.

2.0 star rating S.Thompson from Los Angeles, California


11/23/18 The sound reinforcement was terrible or The Terrace Theater acoustics were terrible. The entire concert was muddy. Couldn’t hear the back up singers, the words to the songs, or the leads well. I know Joe can do better. Waste of money. Too bad. Didn’t the engineers hear this? Blahhh.

2.0 star rating Scott from Bellingham, Washington.


Would have thought the sound in the Queen E. Theater would have been better. Seemed muddy and disproportionate to the drum set. Had to struggle to hear the entirety of Joe's solos. Not sure if that is on the Bonamassa crew or the Theater crew. Was also quite disappointed in the song selection. I know new music is important to keep the train rolling. But the train began through the energy provided by those songs, such as Slow Gin, Mountain Time, John Henry, and Dust Bowl. I even thought I would hear the title song Redemption from his new album. I have been a big fan for the last 6-7 years, thanks to PBS, You Tube, and Pandora. But I only heard two songs I knew of in the 2+ hours he generously played. Although his skill and talent was definitely on full display last night, he's still the best, I left the theater sadly disappointed. Tickets cost too much anymore, and this may likely have been my one shot to see him. Maybe I can get some redemption in Red Rocks some day.
