Joe Satriani — whose new album, Unstoppable Momentum, will be released May 7 by Epic — has announced a US tour.
It is set to launch August 29 in San Diego before hitting Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Denver, Texas, New York, Boston and Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, before winding up back on the west coast in October.
Fans should note that several more dates will be announced soon. Stay tuned for updates!
Joining Satriani on the road are veteran band mate Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) on keyboards, plus along with a new rhythm-section, featuring bassist Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Dweezil Zappa) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Steve Wilson). Support for the tour is provided by the Steve Morse Band (except for one date; see the complete schedule below).
Satriani released the music video for "A Door Into Summer," the first single from Unstoppable Momentum, earlier this week. He will be a guest on the nationally syndicated radio show Rockline on May 8.
