    Friend of mine went to that show. He's seen a lot of big name bands through the 80's, 90's and 00's. Said that Bonamassa at Red Rocks was on of the best shows he has seen.

    I agree with the OP. I don't understand how some of y'all think his playing is "boring". The guy is a monster player and a crazy gearhead and he's a great humble dude (I've met him a few times).

    Saw it on Palladia yesterday. Love the vintage gear he uses. I love how he doesn't just play one type of guitar i.e. Pauls excluvisely. Plus his vocals seem to be getting stronger and stronger. Great band he had assembled for that show as well.

    Also seems a humble and personable gentleman. IMO the world could use more folks like JB.

    My sister flew out to that show. Count me as a fan of Bonamassa, the man ALWAYS delivers great tone and chops whatever & wherever. If you dig guitar and hate JB, oh well.;)

    He's a great player no doubt and always has great tone, but I wish he'd tame it down sometimes. There are times he could be playing something more interesting instead of just "over the top in your face". I think he has a tendency to overplay at times, but I guess he does it because he can. Just my personal opinion of course...

    I've enjoyed the clips coming out. It's great every time I see someone keeping those influential tunes going!

    It's possible he does, but I wouldn't make the call. JB is from NY. From spending time working there & knowing a lot of people from there, ideas like "subtle, reserved" aren't typically their goal. I appreciate that. Sometimes slow & holding back is good, sometimes I want to hear something that's....BAM! In your face and lots of notes.

    I saw most of this on PBS... I thought it was much better then the live at Albert Hall he did a few years back...

    I'm a big fan. But I think this is fair criticism... Especially if you listen to Warren Haynes, jimmy herring, Steve Kimock, and many others who seem to play with less urgency and less need to prove something.
