Joe Satriani will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, August 4.
The guitarist will be sitting in with The Roots during the program, playing some tracks off his new album, “Shockwave Supernova”, as well as some older favorites.
Satriani’s 15th album was recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, CA; the guitarist co-produced the project with John Cuniberti.
Satriani worked on the record with keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, drummer Marco Minnemann and bassist Bryan Beller.
A second rhythm section that appears on four tracks includes drummer Vinnie Colaiuta – who has worked with Frank Zappa, Sting and Paul Simon, among others – and Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney.
Satriani will launch The Shockwave Tour in Nantes, France on September 17.
