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 date, the third in the series, is subtitled on his website as Rock 'n' Roll Night. That said, it contains a brief solo acoustic set followed by the blazing rock & roll show. Highlights of the evening include his cover of Tom Waits' "Jockey Full of Bourbon," "When the Fire Hits the Sea," and a scorching "John Henry." Also included here is behind-the-scenes and interview footage.
