Joe Bonamassa - Tour de Force

4 venues, 4 bands, 4 set lists... 4 days. The 'making of' Joe Bonamassa's unprecedented live event, at some of the most famous and iconic London venues: Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and The Borderline.

Joe Bonamassa - Tour de Force - Live in London
EPK and Behind-The-Scenes - The Making of 'Tour de Force'.
Blues-rock star Joe Bonamassa's 'Tour De Force – Live In London' (J&R Adventures/Mascot Label Group), is an unprecedented live concert event unfolding over four DVDs, recorded earlier this year at some of the most famous and iconic London venues: Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and The Borderline.
 
We were given exclusive all-areas-access to create four behind-the-scenes films and an EPK, to support each of the live event DVDs. The short films take a unique approach, using a handful of interviewees including crew and fan perspectives as the narrative, intercut with exclusive backstage content.

During the mini-tour, we follow Joe (and his four bands) from pre-production in Los Angeles, CA, to rehearsals in London, England, and through to each soundcheck and live performance. Our behind-the-scenes footage opens each of the DVDs, playing as the intro to the live concerts.
