Joe Satriani, one of rock music's most respected and celebrated electric guitar players, will undertake a 10-date UK tour starting Saturday 8th June at the Manchester Apollo. This will be Satriani's first UK tour since the Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards Tour 2010?
Very special guest is blues guitarist Matt Schofield. The tour coincides with the news that Satriani will record a new solo album later this year for a worldwide release via Sony in May 2013. The enterprising guitarist is also in the planning stages of releasing a career retrospective box set for spring 2013. Earlier this year, Satriani performed a sold out concert with Chickenfoot at the London Brixton Academy in support of the band's second album III. He also embarked on multiple G3 tours in Australia, Europe and South America, had his music sampled in Nicki Minaj' hit single Right Thru Me, and made a cameo appearance as himself in Brad Pitt's Oscar-nominated baseball movie Moneyball.
