Joe Bonamassa says his career has "been a nice progression over the years. Case in point: When last in Lexington, he played the Opera House. On Friday, he's at Rupp Arena.


Listening to an evening Joe Bonamassa’s guitar exploits is akin to sampling every greasy delicacy at a barbecue joint. Some of the tastes are familiar and flavorful enough to where you might overindulge. But the classier establishments always manage a variation of the form that is less expected but equally tasty.
