When it was first announced that Joe Satriani would be getting the original G3 band back together for a 2024 tour, every electric guitar fan knew it would end up being one of the year’s most notable tours.

Following the triumphant first night in Tucson, Arizona, on January 23, Satch and his fellow G3 pioneers Steve Vai and Eric Johnson have since gone on to play in Las Vegas, Seattle, Salem and more, with a double-header at LA’s Orpheum Theatre last weekend capping off the 13-date stint around the US.
