Yesterday, Joe Bonamassa invited his new favorite guitar player – Matteo Mancuso – on stage at the Uber Arena in Berlin. In a social media post, Mancuso expressed his gratitude for the opportunity.

“Yesterday I had the chance to play with the legend Joe Bonamassa at the Uber Arena,” he wrote. “Such an otherworldly experience to play with Joe and his band in a huge arena like this one! It honestly felt like daydreaming! Thank you so much Joe and all the band for this unforgettable moment. It was simply one of the best musical experiences I ever had.”
