Fresh on the heels of the exciting G3 Reunion of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson, comes "The Satch-Vai Tour" launching on March 22 in Orlando, FL. The tour will hit Atlanta, Boston, New York, DC, Detroit, Minneapolis and more before winding up in Salt Lake City on May 8 with 31 shows announced today, more dates TBA soon. This marks the first time that the long-time friends have toured as a duo-bill. In additional exciting news, for the first time they will collaborate on new music with plans to release just before the tour launches in March. The artist pre-sale will begin on Monday, November 13 @ 10am local time (password SVx24) with the general on-sale taking place on Friday, November 17 @ 10am local time.

Satch and Vai's musical careers have been intertwined since their very early days. Satriani served as Vai's guitar teacher during their teenage years on Long Island, New York. Their connection has continued to evolve over the years, even sharing record labels, starting at Relativity Records in the late 80ís, to both calling Sony/Epic Records home for a significant portion of the 90's. Together, they have also frequently teamed up with a third guitarist on multiple occasions throughout the span of 29 years, participating in the semi-annual G3 Tours, both in the U.S. and abroad.

"The Satch/Vai Tour is happening! I'm so looking forward to sharing the stage with Steve again," exclaimed Satriani. "Every time we play together it takes me back to when we were teenagers, eating and breathing music every second of the day, pushing, challenging and helping each other to be the best we could be. I guess we've never stopped!"

Sharing the excitement, Vai remarked, "Touring with Joe is always a pleasure and an honor. He is my favorite guitarist to jam with, and now we have another opportunity to take it to the stage. I feel as though we are both at the top of our game and that the show will be a powerful celebration of the coolest instrument in the world, the electric guitar!"

In April 2022, Satriani released The Elephants of Mars, his 19th studio album during his 35+ year musical career. Last fall, he embarked on a worldwide tour that spanned the U.S. and culminated in France on June 4th. Satriani has also ventured into the world of art, creating original canvases and hand-painted guitars, which are currently available through the Wentworth Gallery. Satriani frequently makes special appearances at the showings where purchasers of his works are treated to a private performance within the gallery.

Vai has been traveling the world since the release of Inviolate. When the current tour plays its final show in December, he will have staged appearances in 51 countries across the globe since the album first came out. Some for the very first time. Alongside Inviolate, in the recent past Vai released an archival album titled Vai/Gash he had been holding in his archive for three decades.
