Joe Satriani will revive his G3 tour entity in 2018 with Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and the former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth.
Since its debut in 1996, Satriani’s G3 tour has featured the world’s greatest guitarists (everyone from Steve Vai and Eric Johnson to Steve Lukather and Robert Fripp) and has become a consistent concert hall sell-out attraction in the U.S., South America, Europe, Australia and Japan.
“I could say that I’m surprised at the durability of G3 and how much it’s grown, but in a way I’m not,” Satriani says with a laugh. “I think part of its charm and its mojo is in the chemistry of having three top guitarists share what they do on stage. It’s fun, it’s unpredictable, it’s wild – it’s everything you could want in a show.”
The G3 tour will feature world-renowned guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and the former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth. Each guitarist performing their own set, followed by a massive end of the show jam.
Joe Satriani will release his 16th solo album, ‘What Happens Next’ in January 2018 with G3 UK tour dates as follows:
24 – Southend, Cliffs Pavilion
25 – London, Eventim Apollo
26 – Bristol, Colston Hall
27 – Manchester, Apollo
29 – Portsmouth, Guildhall
30 – Birmingham, Symphony Hall
Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday November 10th via www.ticketline.co.uk or from the venues direct.
