Joe Satriani’s most recent album, Shockwave Supernova, was released last month. It was his 15th solo album and he plans on riding it into 2016 with the announcement of his tour, “Surfing to Shockwave.” This tour promises to be one of his best ever as it marks 30 years of his illustrious career of incredible guitar playing.
The 45-date tour celebrates “30 Years of Mind-Bending Guitar Daredevilry,” a phrase coined last year by Rolling Stone. It launches February 25 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, crosses the U.S., dipping into Canada, and ending April 24.
