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. This volume marks the tour's first evening. As such, it features a brief acoustic set, followed by the guitarist and a rhythm section at their loosest and most improvisatory, in full jam mode. Highlights include "Your Funeral My Trial," "Story of a Quarryman," "The River," and a sprawling reading of Jimi Hendrix's "Are You Experienced." Also included on the disc is behind-the-scenes and interview footage.
