Joe Satriani Has More Dates To Play

Those sounds you’ve been hearing all day are the joyous cheers emanating from the throats of Joe Satriani’s fans upon learning their guitar hero has extended his 2016 tour into April.  New additions include Atlanta, Toronto, Boston, Chicago and Milwaukee.

Satriani’s “Surfing to Shockwave” tour covers Satriani’s recording career, from 1986’s Not Of this Earth album to 2015’s Shockwave Supernova effort. Satriani’s camp likes to describe the outing as celebrating “30 years of mind-bending guitar daredevilry” – a phrase coined by Rolling Stone in a June 2014 feature about the awesome axeman.

The last time we checked in on Satriani’s tour, the journey ended at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, Fla., March 19.  The new list of dates pick up two days later with Satriani rockin’ Durham, N.C.
