Italian-American multi-instrumentalist Joe Satriani seems to never disappoint us with his astounding technical abilities and larger-than-life showmanship. After his first self-titled debut EP in 1984, Satriani has a huge back catalog including, several live albums, 3 EPs, 4 compilation albums, and 15 studio albums; including his July 24, 2015 release of his critically acclaimed Shockwave Supernova, which sits today at #19 on the Billboard’s Top 200 Current Albums.
Musical releases aside, the badass rock instrumentalist, whose Mary Poppins bag of famous circus tricks includes playing his guitar strings with his teeth, is currently parading throughout Europe on his Shockwave World Tour 2015.
Blues-based guitarist Dan Patlansky joins Satriani and friends between October 9 – November 10, with Markus James joining October 3 – 8.
The lineup of musical masters includes Marco Minneman on drums (The Aristocrats), Bryan Beller on bass (Dethklock, The Aristocrats), and vocalist and composer Mike Keneally on second guitar and keys.
But fresh off the griddle is a slice of tasty rock and roll news! Satriani has just announced a round of upcoming dates for his next tour of the US, “Surfing To Shockwave 2016 Retrospective Tour,” with Rolling Stone calling it “30 Years of Mind-Bending Guitar Daredevilry.”
The 45-date run begins on February 25, 2016 at the famous Paramount Theater in Seattle, Washington. The material fans can expect will be a collection of Satriani’s greatest material, along with exclusive performances of songs the 15-time Grammy nominated guitarist hasn’t played live in nearly 20 years!
Tickets go on sale this coming October 2nd!
