Joe Satriani Takes You ‘Surfing To Shockwave’

Joe Satriani announces his 2016 “Surfing To Shockwave” tour – a retrospective look at his career stretching over three decades.  Tickets for shows in Seattle, Reno, Dallas, New Orleans and other markets go on sale this week.

Having released his first solo album – Not Of This Earth – in 1986, Satriani has plenty of reasons to celebrate.  The guitar maestro released 15th solo effort, Shockwave Supernova, in July. 

Borrowing a phrase from a 1014 Rolling Stone interview, Satriani’s camp is describing the tour as celebrating “30 years of mind-bending guitar daredevilry.”  The outing is expected to cover his entire career as well as include songs he hasn’t played in over two decades.
