Joe Satriani North American Tour Dates Announced

by Jon Bloggin' Rogo

Guitar great Joe Satriani has announced his full U.S. tour and first ever cross-Canada tour, supporting his latest record Unstoppable Momentum.

The tour is set to begin on August 29th in San Diego, California before crisscrossing its way across the US, in addition to a trans-Canadian tour where Satriani will be hitting many Canadian cities for the very first time. The North American tour will end with a show on Rocktober 26th in Oakland, California. Joining Satriani on the road are veteran band mate Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) on keyboards, along with an entirely new rhythm-section, featuring bassist Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Dweezil Zappa) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Steve Wilson).
 
Satriani is celebrating Unstoppable Momentum, his 14th studio record, which was released on May 7th, 2013. The album debuted at #42 giving Satriani his highest chart position in over 20 years. The World Tour launched on May 18th in Istanbul, Turkey and continues on through July 13th in Krasnodar, Russia.
 
For two decades, Satriani has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star G3 guitar extravaganza. His 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 record certified gold and their second studio album debuted at #9.
