American blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa is set to join a host of named legends as he receives his brick in The Cavern ‘Wall of Fame’ this month ahead of his intimate Cavern gig on 27 June.  Bonamassa’s free show at Liverpool’s famous cellar club is a thank you to his British fans for the support they have shown him through his career. Joe will launch his British Blues Explosion concert, which will pay homage to some of his musical inspirations including Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, the latter two of already whom also feature in the Cavern’s ‘Wall of Fame’.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” says Bonamassa. “I’m so excited to be debuting the British Blues Explosion concert at the Cavern Club.  It’s the perfect venue for me to showcase the music of Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. I hope my fans will get a kick out of it as much as I do.”

Cavern director Jon Keats says of the forthcoming show, “We’re delighted to have such a great icon as Joe Bonamassa perform at The Cavern. He joins an already great list of blues artists to have adorned the Cavern stage over the years including the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. It’s fair to say that Joe is more than worthy of his brick in the ‘Wall of Fame’.”

Joe Bonamassa will be presented with his brick in the wall on Monday 27th June at The Cavern’s Wall of Fame, Mathew Street at 12:15pm.

 

The Cavern Wall of Fame

In 1997 to celebrate the Cavern’s 40th anniversary and as a tribute to the many performers who appeared at the Club before its closure in 1973, the Cavern Wall of Fame was created. It covers the entire frontage of the Cavern Pub (owned by Cavern City Tours) and each of the 1801 bricks in the wall feature the name of an act, which played the Cavern. Witnessed by thousands of onlookers Gerry Marsden unveiled the Wall of Fame, and then Billy J. Kramer unveiled a life size statue of John Lennon, which now stands leaning against the wall outside the Cavern Pub.

Today only established, high profile artists receive the privilege of being inducted into the Cavern Wall of Fame.

The Cavern Club is the first performance of Joe’s upcoming British Blues Explosion tour.

The rest of the concerts will take place at the following venues in July –
