Tuesday Tune: Joe Satriani
In 1986, Joe Satriani released his first solo album through Relativity Records, “Not of This Earth.” Fast-forward to this year when Satriani released his 15th solo album, “Shockwave Supernova” to critical acclaim. To mark this major milestone anniversary, Satriani will bring to life the “Surfing to Shockwave” 2016 tour, an evening highlighting music over his 30-year career, including songs the legendary guitarist hasn’t played live in over 20 years!
Satriani comes to Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts on March 22!
For two decades, the guitar virtuoso has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza. Satriani’s studio and live recordings have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide to date, and of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them. His side project, Chickenfoot, featuring former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith, saw its debut album go certified gold, and their second studio album debuted at No. 9.
