AllMusic Review by

Joe Bonamassa's Tour de Force: Live in London video series presents four concerts recorded in the U.K. that feature the famed New York guitarist and his band in various settings that document his career. Each of the four DVDs is loosely themed and includes music that Bonamassa had recorded but seldom if ever played live -- though the track lists may be similar, various themes change up the arrangements night to night. Shepherd's Bush Empire is the second volume in the series. The band here is the largest of any evening as it is augmented by a horn section, creating more of a jump blues feel to the proceedings. Highlights include "Chains & Things," "Midnight Blues," and "Asking Around for You." Also included on the disc is behind-the-scenes and interview footage.
