Joe Satriani has announced dates for the first North American leg of his 2016 Surfing To Shockwave tour.
The 45-date run will see the guitarist perform an evening of music spotlighting his 30-year career while marking the anniversary of his 1986 debut, “Not Of This Earth”, and promoting his latest effort, “Shockwave Supernova.”
The tour opens February 25 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre with tickets going on sale starting September 25.
“Shockwave Supernova” was recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, CA; the guitarist co-produced the project with John Cuniberti.
Last week, Satriani launched a European tour in support of his 15th album, which delivered the legendary axeman his highest US chart debut at No. 19 on the Billboard 200. The feat ranks as the highest charting all-instrumental rock album on Billboard’s chart in the SoundScan era.
