St. Augustine Amphitheatre is a modern concert venue set in Anastasia State Park with state-of-the-art sound and lighting. Upon arrival at this beautiful venue one could immediately feel the energy and excitement in the air that Joe Bonamassa's concerts are famous for. The majority of the approximately 4,000 seats were filled with standing, cheering fans when Bonamassa walked out on the stage at 7:30 PM and from that moment on both the night and the people belonged to him.

April 8, 2018

The Plaza Live
Orlando, Florida

by Michelle Wilson of Rock Legends Photographers


Singer/songwriter/guitarist Tommy Emmanuel brought his explosive guitar dynamics to The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida and played to a packed house of mesmerized fans. The Australian-born, Nashville-based guitar wizard, who was extolled by the late, great Chet Atkins as one of the greatest guitar players he had ever seen, incorporates a unique fingerpicking technique into his playing style and has twice been named "Best Acoustic Guitarist" in Guitar Player Magazine. Also noteworthy is the fact that Emmanuel never learned to read music and plays by ear. Every show is chock full of charm, personality and humor, and oh yeah - intense pickin'.
