Tour De Force Live in London – The Borderline is a live album and video by blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa.
In 2013 Bonamassa and his band performed concerts at four very different venues in London – Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo, Shepherd s Bush Empire and The Borderline. Each has become a live album that was released in 2014.
Inevitably this move has been criticised by some as more driven by motives of profit than music. That is of course up to the individual fan to decide whether any of all of these are to become part of his or her music collection.
The concert at The Borderline is the most intimate as it only holds about 200 people and tickets were extremely expensive to get this close to Bonamassa.
