When Joe Bonamassa took the stage at Royal Albert Hall in May 2009, he fulfilled a dream he'd held since first picking up a guitar as a kid in upstate New York. The sold-out concert - fresh off the release of his #1 album "The Ballad of John Henry" - marked Bonamassa's headlining debut at arguably the most prestigious concert venue in the world.

At the Hall, Bonamassa had the added honor of being joined onstage by the legendary Eric Clapton. The concert also features classics from Bonamassa’s catalog including "So Many Roads," Rod Stewart’s "Blues Deluxe," "The Ballad of John Henry," "Sloe Gin," ZZ Top’s "Just Got Paid" and many more.

The Times of London cited Joe's "searing excellence and showmanship," and Planet Rock said, "The sight of two of the world's best guitarists trading solos was more than a little thrilling."
