JOE SATRIANI ANNOUNCES “SURFING TO SHOCKWAVE” 2016 RETROSPECTIVE TOUR
In 1986 Joe Satriani released his first solo album through Relativity Records, Not of This Earth. Fast-forward to this year when Satriani released his 15th solo album, “Shockwave Supernova” to critical acclaim. To mark this major milestone anniversary, Satriani will bring to life the Surfing to Shockwave 2016 Tour, an evening spotlighting his 30-year career.
The 45-date tour celebrating “30 Years of Mind-Bending Guitar Daredevilry,” a phrase coined in a June 2014 career-defining retrospective feature in Rolling Stone, launches February 25th at Seattle’s legendary Paramount Theatre crossing the US into Canada ending April 24th. The shows will highlight music over Satriani’s entire career, including songs the legendary guitarist hasn’t played live in over 20 years.
Joe’s touring band remains Marco Minnemann on drums, Bryan Beller on bass and Mike Keneally on keys & guitar.
Tickets will be on sale beginning September 25th with exclusive Joe Satriani meet & greet and VIP packages available on sale starting September 23rd, for details please visit, satriani.com.
