Joe Bonamassa has announced that he’ll release a new live package later this year.

Titled British Blues Explosion Live, it was recorded during the vocalist and guitarist’s show at Greenwich Music Time at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London, on July 7, 2016.

It was part of the live tour Bonamassa set up to honour the musicians who have inspired him, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

It’ll launch on May 18 on CD, DVD, Blu-ray and 3LP via Mascot Label Group/J&R Adventures.

Bonamassa says: “If it wasn’t for certain British musicians of the early 1960s, the blues may well never have exploded into rock music as we know it today, and indeed may have passed into history.”

British Blues Explosion Live is now available for pre-order. Find the cover art and tracklist below, along with Bonamassa’s upcoming tour dates and a trailer for the new release.
