Blues-rock guitar sensation Joanne Shaw Taylor announces February 2024 UK Tour including a show in Amsterdam
British Blues rock guitar prodigy Joanne Shaw Taylor is pleased to announce ten UK concerts and one in Amsterdam in February 2024. Planet Rock will start a 48-hour ticket pre-sale at 10am GMT on Wednesday 15 November via Planetrock.com. Tickets will then go on general sale at 10am on Friday 17 November from Gigantic.com, Planetrocktickets.co.uk, and joanneshawtaylor.com.
Joanne will perform songs from her recent critically acclaimed albums “Nobody’s Fool,” and The Blues Album which topped Billboard Magazine’s Official Blues Album Chart. She will also perform new songs from her forthcoming album including “Sweet ‘Lil Lies” and “Black Magic.”
The Blues Album was voted #1 Most Played Blues Album of 2021 by the Independent Blues Broadcaster’s Association. Joanne will also dig deep into her rich back catalogue where she will hand-pick songs from her albums Reckless Heart, Wild, The Dirty Truth, Almost Always Never, Diamonds in the Dirt, and White Sugar.
Her latest single, crafted alongside Kevin Shirley, the iconic producer, at the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville, “Black Magic” is the fruit of a collaboration with stellar artists such as Rob McNelly, Doug Lancio, Alison Prestwood, Jimmy Wallace, and Anton Fig.
Watch the official music video for “Black Magic” NOW.
“I originally wrote ‘Black Magic’ for my album ‘Nobody’s Fool’ and intended for it to be an instrumental called ‘Butterbeer Blues,’” Joanne recalls. “But then, I decided to give it lyrics and transform it into a fun, traditional acoustic blues song.Hopefully I succeeded and you’ll enjoy the rootsy vibe!” The lyrics unfold a tale of entrancement, spellbinding love, and the mystique of attraction, all delicately wrapped in Joanne’s signature guitar brilliance.
Always one to push boundaries, Joanne’s union with Joe Bonamassa’s Journeyman Records continues to flourish, ensuring that her music reaches her global fanbase, uncompromised and pure. This relationship, alongside her innate creativity, guarantees a stream of sensational releases that cut through the industry noise.
Discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics when she was a mere 16 years old and subsequently invited to tour the world, Joanne’s rise to stardom, propelled by endorsements from music giants like Stevie Wonder and Annie Lennox, remains unmatched.
With a discography boasting chart-toppers like Reckless Heart, The Blues Album, and most recently Nobody’s Fool, Joanne is unstoppable. As she readies her next studio album, fans can expect a cocktail of her signature guitar riffs, emotive vocals, and inspired songwriting.
