A POPULAR blues and rock guitarist has announced a six-date UK tour.

Joe Bonamassa will play the Brighton Centre on Saturday, April 25 next year.

Tickets go on sale on Friday and will start from £72.50.

Joe is considered one of the greatest blues and rock guitarists of the 20th century.

He was discovered by American singer-songwriter BB King at the age of 12 and has not stopped performing since.

Bonamassa has performed with the likes of Eric Clapton, Foreigner and Steve Winwood.

He has also been part of bands including Black Country Communion, but it is his solo career that has made him a star of guitar.

He has released 15 studio albums under his own name, the most recent of which was last year’s Redemption.

The record peaked at 26 in the US billboard charts and proved he is still as popular as when his career started.
