Joe Satriani Announces Tour Dates

Joe Satriani Announces Tour Dates

27th January 2020 0 By John Deaux

World-renowned guitar virtuoso, JOE SATRIANI, announces a string of May 2020 UK tour dates to support the release of his 17th solo album. Travelling under the moniker of “The Shapeshifting Tour”. The six-date UK run will start at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea (May 22) finishing up at Birmingham Symphony Hall (May 28).


The live show will feature tracks from the new studio album released by Sony/Legacy in April 2020, plus he will perform many of his classic fan-favorites including “Surfing With The Alien”, “Always with Me, Always with You” and ”Flying In A Blue Dream”.


The 2020 touring band features celebrated drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Fogerty) bassist Bryan Beller (Aristocrats) and keyboardist Rai Thistlethwayte (Thirsty Merc) and Joe Satriani on guitar.


For two decades, the guitar virtuoso has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza.  SATRIANI’s studio and live recordings have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide to date and of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them.  His side project, Chickenfoot, featuring former Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith saw their debut album certified gold and their second studio album debuted at #9.


Since its debut in 1996, SATRIANI’s G3 tour has featured the world’s greatest guitarists (everyone from Steve Vai and Eric Johnson to Steve Lukather and Robert Fripp and John Petrucci and Uli Jon Roth) and has become a consistent concert hall sell-out attraction in the U.S., South America, Europe, Australia and Japan. “I think part of its charm and its mojo is in the chemistry of having three top guitarists share what they do on stage,” says SATRIANI. “It’s fun, it’s unpredictable, it’s wild – it’s everything you could want in a show.”


Since the 2017 release of his “What Happens Next” album, SATRIANI, toured his G3 Guitar Extravaganza worldwide to critical acclaim, and then embarked on the Experience Hendrix US tour.  He recently released “Squares, a collection of previously unreleased material by his first, pre-fame band, Squares and announced the re-release of his classic 1987 album, Surfing With The Alien,” which will arrive with new artwork and a bonus disc, “Stripped – the Backing Tracks,” featuring the songs with all guitar solos removed.
