Joe Bonamassa Shows Off 'Black Rock' With Spring Trek

Live Daily is reporting blues-rockin' guitarist Joe Bonamassa will spend most of the spring pounding the pavement in support of his forthcoming 10th studio set, "Black Rock."

Following a late-February leg in Russia, the singer/songwriter/guitarist will kick off the US portion with a March 3 show in Eugene, OR. The two-month trek crisscrosses the country, stopping by theaters in 30 cities through a March 8 concert in Omaha. Details are included below.

"Black Rock," Bonamassa's 10th solo effort, is slated to hit retailers March 23 and will mark his sixth release on his own J&R Adventures imprint. The musician teamed up again with producer Kevin Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith), who also worked on Bonamassa's 2009 collection, "The Ballad of John Henry." That set debuted atop Billboard's Blues Albums chart last February.

The new album--which was recorded at and named after Black Rock Studios in Santorini, Greece--features a number of covers, including a version of the Willie Nelson-penned song "Night Life" alongside B.B. King. Other tracks on the album: Leonard Cohen's "Bird On a Wire," John Hiatt's "I Know a Place" and Jeff Beck's "Spanish Boots," among others.

In November, Bonamassa accepted the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the UK's prestigious Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards in London. His most recent release on DVD, 'Live From The Royal Albert Hall', which features a guest appearance by rock legend Eric Clapton, hit #6 on Billboard's DVD chart this past fall.
