I love joe bonamassa and really looked forward to seeing him. Paid lots to go. I was ready to leave after the first song. I waited thinking somebody would notice the sound quality. But after 35 minutes . Nothing happened. I had to leave. When my old poor quality home stereo sounds better than the sony center somethings wrong . Very Very disappointed

Eschews drone farming for endless ramparts of merciless 6 and 12 bombastic collages. Teeming aside the void of fretless hollows, intersections of kebobing, mangled shoots arrive ferociously on peeling planes of unlikely scripts. So unlikely as to be wreckful and marveled in sonic nature, plowing aside predetermined eclectic natural mating. Scrubbing furrows of both orthodox and impatient scrubland of scars tripping overnight into moatland shells. Endless applauds.

1.0 star rating Jimmy Barber from Indianapolis, IN


Has yet to grasp the age old standard that substance is the treasure over style. He gallops wildly in the frenetic attempt to amuse ... himself as much as the holy on their knees. Earning a viceroy's indulgence in pyrotechnics, he'll meet himself wandering as the host of music gradually embraces him in his scorched earth deliberations. Would be interesting to witness 60 looking back at 40.

1.0 star rating Jim Clark from Fort Lauderdale, Florida


There were very few great parts to the show. The keyboards and Joe’s guitar competed for clarity and there was none. Most of the show the music was muddled and the vocals were as well. There were very few instances of what JB does the best and that is play lead guitar. The songs seemed to be lengthened with many repetitive verses repeating themselves way to long. In short, make the songs drag on so as to decrease the amount of songs in the show? What a complete disappointment. The venue The Au Rene Theater clearly out shined Joe Bonamassa’s show. To think I have tickets for the show in two days in Ft. Myers as well...... I’ll be selling them for sure.

The mix for this show was less than amateur. It was horrible. We sat right next to the sound engineer, where it should sound the best. In spite of our 'good' location, the sound was a muddy, indistinct, mess. Not one instrument could be clearly discerned when the full band played. Only when the majority of the instruments dropped out was there any semblance of clarity. The bass was indistinct even on its own. Any note played by Joe below D above middle C had a nasty, brutal resonance. The vocals were buried most of the show. The horns and keys were always too dominant in the mix, which I hate to call a mix since nothing was indeed mixed properly. Could have been a great wasn't. I feel ripped off and want my money back.

By far the worst concert and sound quality (LOUD) I have ever been to. Not to mention the drunk idiot that would not shut up behind us. I will never go to another Bonomassa concert ever, and/or another civic center concert again.
