Joe Bonamassa - Another ARTIST allowing bootleggers to record concerts!

Official Joe Bonamassa Taping Policy

"Except where prohibited by venue regulations or a headlining act on a multi-act show, Joe Bonamassa generally allows audio taping and still photography at his live performances. No soundboard feeds will be given and it is the responsibility of audio tapers to bring their own equipment. Still photographers will not be given access to any areas beyond those granted on their ticket. Notwithstanding this policy, all persons attending a performance must comply with the rules and regulations of the venue hosting the performance.

Any and all audio recordings and still photography taped/taken at a live show may be used solely for non-commercial purposes. Any and all audio recordings and still photography taped/taken at a live show shall be considered "works-made-for-hire" for Premier Artists Services within the meaning of the Copyright Act of 1976 and Premier Artists Services will own the copyright and all other rights in and to the work. Selling any audio recording or still photographs taped/taken at shows is illegal and will jeopardize other fans' taping and still photography privileges. Video taping performances is prohibited without the express written consent of artist management. This policy is subject to change at any time without notice so please check www.jbonamassa.com for changes.

While it is not mandatory, Joe would love to hear your audio recordings and see your still photos of his shows. If possible, please send him copies (audio and data CDs only) to: Joe Bonamassa, c/o Premier Artists Services, 2555 Panther Parkway, Sunrise, FL 33323. Please mark all packages as FOR THE ARCHIVES. Packages will not be returned."

Joe isn't the only one, just like "The Dead" and all the way to Jack Johnson......many performers love their fans. They want us to have QUALITY performances to enjoy! Van Morrison hates us to share his stuff, but others like it...............let us ENJOY the artists who do. Share! Share! AND SHARE!


SUPPORT THE ARTIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
