Joe Satriani’s ‘Shapeshifting’ UK tour dates have been rescheduled to May 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Satriani’s latest studio album, “Shapeshifting”, originally released April 2020 via Sony Music/Legacy Recordings, features the radio tracks “Nineteen Eighty” and “Big Distortion”.
The 2022 shows will feature tracks from the new album “Shapeshifting”, plus many of his classic fan favourites including “Surfing With The Alien”, “Always With Me, Always With You” and “Flying In A Blue Dream”.
The band will feature celebrated drummer Kenny Aronoff, bassist Bryan Beller, keyboardist Rai Thistlethwayte and Joe Satriani on guitar.
For two decades, Satriani has travelled 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 front man Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith saw their debut album certified gold and their second studio album debuted at #9.
Since the 2017 release of his “What Happens Next” album, Satriani, toured his G3 Guitar Extravaganza worldwide to critical acclaim, and then embarked on the Experience Hendrix US tour. Last year Satriani announced the re-release of his classic 1987 album, “Surfing With The Alien” that featured new artwork and a bonus disc, “Stripped – the Backing Tracks,” featuring the songs with all guitar solos removed.
