_____________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Following on the footsteps of the hugely successful North American “Surfing to Shockwave” tour, Joe Satriani announces his upcoming European tour dates beginning June 18th in France. The tour will touch 11 countries in all, including Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland – in just one month of touring. A few of these stops will be G3 dates featuring Satriani joined by Steve Vai and the Aristocrats (see below for details).

The North American leg wrapped up late April in Vancouver after a full-on 2-month tour where the hard-working guitarist hit 48 dates in the U.S. and Canada, many of which were sold-out in advance. The “Surfing to Shockwave” tour is in celebration of the guitar icon’s “30 Years of Mind-Bending Guitar Daredevilry,” a phrase coined in a June 2014 career-defining retrospective feature in Rolling Stone. Each night, SATRIANI spotlights music from his first solo album, “Not of this Earth” through his latest release, his 15th solo album, “Shockwave Supernova”.

During the tour, concert going fans were able to enter the “Little Kids Rock” raffle with a chance to win a signed JS 20th Anniversary Ibanez guitar. Over 2000 concert fans purchased a tix with the grand prize winners, Brian & Debbie Currier, chosen last month. On June 4th, Brian & Debbie flew to meet Joe and receive the autographed guitar. The funds raised through the raffle will enable Little Kids Rock to bring the transformational gift of music to more than 700 public school children by helping launch Modern Band music programs in schools that may otherwise be in danger of having their music programming eliminated due to budget cuts.

Little Kids Rock provides professional development training to music teachers and donates all of the instruments and curriculum they need to teach their students to play the popular musical styles that they know and love on day one! Little Kids Rock is proud to support music programs across the country, and specifically in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the program was founded and currently impacts the lives of nearly 12,000 K-12 public school students in more than 100 schools.

In other live appearance news, the previously announced 2016 G4 Experience will take place at the Glen Cove Mansion on Long Island, NY, August 8-12, 2016. Now in its third year, the G4 Experience quite literally brings the Grammy Award-nominated multiplatinum guitar legend and innovator back home. SATRIANI famously grew up in the Long Island area, even cutting his teeth at venues in the surrounding neighborhoods. One of his very first students was none other than best friend and fellow native Steve Vai. That makes Glen Cove Mansion the ultimate location for the G4 Experience. Once again, SATRIANI attracted some of the instrument’s foremost talents as instructors, including Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Alex Skolnick, Mike Keneally, and more.

This past August, the world-renowned guitarist released his 15th studio album, hitting Satriani’s highest chart debut at #19 on Billboard’s Top 200 Current Albums Chart. In addition, the album also debuted at #3 on the Billboard Rock Chart and ranks as the highest charting all-instrumental rock album on Billboard’s Top 200 in the SoundScan era.

For two decades, the guitar virtuoso has traveled 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.

Joe’s touring band remains Marco Minnemann on drums, Bryan Beller on bass and Mike Keneally on keys & guitar.

JOE SATRIANI SETS RELEASE OF HIS 15TH STUDIO ALBUM – “SHOCKWAVE SUPERNOVA” ON JULY 24TH

World Tour Begins September 17th in Europe – U.S. Tour Planned Early 2016

“CRYSTAL PLANET” – Satriani’s Sci-Fi Animation Series in the Works

__________________________

(Los Angeles – May 12, 2015) Legendary guitarist, JOE SATRIANI, announces plans to release his 15th solo studio album, Shockwave Supernova, on July 24th, making him one of the first to utilize the new “Friday, Global Release Day” for music.

It would be easy to call Shockwave Supernova a “masterpiece” or “the last word on guitar” from the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer. Satch, however, sees it much more personally. He has consistently advanced the artistry of the instrument; an effort he dedicated himself to on September 18, 1970, the day his idol Jimi Hendrix died.

Recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, CA, Satriani assembled the dynamic trio of world-class musicians who had recently been part of his global tour; renowned keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, a veteran of several Satch outings and recordings; along with drumming whiz Marco Minnemann and bass extraordinaire Bryan Beller. “I couldn’t have asked for a better band to help bring these songs to life,” says Satriani.

The album also sees Satriani once again joining forces co-producer and engineer John Cuniberti. Satch and Cuniberti share production on Shockwave Supernova, as they have on numerous albums – their shared history dates back to the guitar star’s 1986 debut album, Not Of This Earth and its follow-up, the platinum-selling, critically acclaimed, Surfing with the Alien.

Minnemann and Beller handle the bulk of Shockwave Supernova’s rhythmic duties, with the exception of four cuts – the driving “Keep On Movin’,” full of wondrous Satch guitar wizardry and Keneally’s playful piano, “In My Pocket,” a deliciously greasy, souped-up take on Swing, along with “Crazy Joey” (a deliriously effervescent romp) and “Scarborough Stomp” (a relentless upbeat rocker) – find Satriani joined by another powerhouse rhythm section: the esteemed drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (whose work includes the likes of Frank Zappa, Sting, Paul Simon, among others) and Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney (whose resume includes Alanis Morrisette, Celine Dion and Rob Zombie, to name a few).

Recently, during the final performance of his two-year Unstoppable Momentum tour, Satriani had an epiphany; he found himself, “playing the guitar with my teeth an awful lot. I thought, ‘Why are you doing this?’ It’s as if something else, or somebody else, was driving me to do it.” Satriani seized upon this moment of self-realization as the springboard and creative center for his alter ego “Shockwave Supernova,” the outlandish and extroverted ‘performance side’ of the normally shy and reserved guitar virtuoso. With this new persona as partner, Satriani launched his wildly ambitious 15th solo album, Shockwave Supernova.

In a creative and engaging alternative venture, Satriani, a lifelong science fiction fan, has reached out to the future, through the medium of animation. Finally recognizing the on-stage symmetry with his alter ego allowed Satriani to also take a risk on this particular style of storytelling. He says, “Guitarist Ned Evett and I have created an animated series called Crystal Planet. The actual Crystal Planet is our very own Earth, set billions of years in the future. The hero of the show uses music generated by a unique electric guitar to travel through time while the show’s characters struggle to preserve the future and past of humankind.” More information on Crystal Planet and how and where fans will view the series will be coming shortly.

Fans are now able to pre-order the new album with an exclusive signed poster only at satriani.com. Joe will be selecting art for the poster from fan submitted art – check Joe’s FB page for more details (facebook.com/joesatriani). The album is available for pre-order on Amazon (http://smarturl.it/satriani_SS_amzn) and iTunes (http://smarturl.it/satriani_SS_itunes) and will also be available to order as 2 LP 120 gram vinyl.

As was previously announced, Satriani and Steve Vai, will perform at a third benefit concert in support of music industry veteran and their good friend, Cliff Cultreri. “A Benefit for Cliff III” is set for Friday, June 12th at 8pm at Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. This event will feature performances by Satriani and Vai, as well as special guests, Animals As Leaders. In addition, Satriani and Vai, along with other artists, have graciously donated various items to be auctioned at the event. Among these items are autographed guitars as well as a chance to join Satriani’s “G4 Camp” taking place June 28 – July 2 in Cambria, CA.

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT MUSIC INDUSTRY VETERAN AND FRIEND – CLIFF CULTRERI

__________________________

(Los Angeles, CA – March 24, 2015) Legendary guitarists JOE SATRIANI and STEVE VAI announce plans for a third benefit concert in support of music industry veteran and good friend, Cliff Cultreri.

“A Benefit for Cliff III” will take place on Friday, June 12th at 8pm at Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.  This event will feature performances by Satriani and Vai, as well as special guests, Animals As Leaders.

In addition to this extraordinary musical event, Satriani and Vai, along with other artists, have graciously donated various items to be auctioned at the event.  Among these items are autographed guitars as well as a chance to join Satriani’s “G4 Camp” taking place June 28 – July 2  in Cambria, CA and a package to attend Vai’s camp, “Vai Academy 2015 – All About The Guitar” in Vail, CO, August 2-6 as well.

Cliff Cultreri is the A&R executive who ‘discovered’ Satriani and Vai, as well as many other popular recording artists, while working at Relativity Records and Koch Entertainment. Cultreri is suffering from a host of Auto-Immune and Connective-Tissue disorders that are simultaneously attacking his immune system, a 1 in 100 million occurrence that causes severe pain and physical debilitations.  During his years in the industry, Cultreri has served as A&R for a number of top names including Allan Holdsworth, Billy Sheehan & Talas, Peter Frampton, Megadeth, Corrosion Of Conformity, Exodus, Anthrax, Death, Venom, Slash’s Snakepit, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, Modern English, Gene Loves Jezebel, Fat Joe, Common, Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, 3-6 Mafia, KRS1, Beatnuts, C Murder, Kurupt, Soulja Slim, RZA, and many others in all genres of music.

In 2006, Satriani and Vai joined forces for the first Cultreri benefit show and in 2011, came together again for the second.  Through both benefits, the duo have raised money and brought attention to the devastation this disease takes on both the patient and their family.

Satriani and Vai hope to raise even more funds with this year’s benefit to help Cultreri and his family’s financial needs. “I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with my good friends Steve Vai and Animals as Leaders for a night of unforgettable music,” said Satriani.  With Vai adding, “It’s a great privilege to take to the stage with my friends Joe and Tosin (of Animals As Leaders) in support of our dear buddy Cliff.  It’s a great cause and will be a magical evening of guitar extravaganza.”

Reserved tickets start at $45 and are on sale now through ticketmaster.com/.  A limited number of VIP packages, including a meet and greet with Satriani and Vai, are also available.  Doors will be at 7 pm with the show set to begin at 8 pm.

Celebrating Release of Career-Spanning Box Set & Musical Memoir

Shows Include Return to Hometown of Long Island, Special PBS Taping
at The Iridium in NY and in Connecticut

_________________________________

May 6, 2014 – New York, NY – Joe Satriani will return to the east coast for three special appearances this June to celebrate the release of both, his career-spanning box set, Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings and his first-ever autobiographical memoir, “Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir” (benbellabooks.com).

The first of these three shows finds Satriani returning to his hometown, playing The Space at Westbury in Long Island on June 7th. This will be Satriani’s first appearance on Long Island in a number of years and the anticipation level is high. The following Monday, in honor of Les Paul’s 99th birthday, Joe and his band will perform a 2-hour concert at the Iridium in NYC, the home of Les Paul’s legendary, weekly performances for many years.  This event will be recorded for a fall 2014 PBS TV Special called “Front & Center”. Lastly, Joe and the band will wrap their brief east coast run with a stop in Ridgefield, CT for a show at The Ridgefield Playhouse.

Following these special engagements, Joe and his band (Marco Minnemann – drums, Bryan Beller – bass and Mike Keneally – keys & guitar) will head to Europe for a number of Festival appearances and other shows ending in late July.

______________________________

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings, a career-spanning 15-CD library box, including the most comprehensive anthology to date, is also available as a collectible limited edition USB drive, exclusively on satriani.com. The entire collection on the USB will be in 24-bit/96kHz “High-Resolution Audio”. HRA offers Joe’s audiophile fans higher resolution in bandwidth, wider dynamic range, greater detail, and more depth than a conventional CD. The HRA recordings are as close as a fan can get to both the early 1/2″ analog masters and the later high sample rate digital masters. All albums have been re-mastered specifically for HRA delivery by John Cuniberti.

The press response to the career-spanning box set and book have been tremendous with The Hollywood Reporter noting, “Joe Satriani is recognized as one of the greatest guitarists in the world,” while USA Today calls him, “(Satriani)…the raging maestro whose 1987 instrumental Surfing With the Alien won him ax-god status, who channeled every guitarist the Rolling Stones ever had while touring with Mick Jagger in 1988 and who most recently helped classic rock supergroup Chickenfoot race up the charts…”

One of the most influential and respected instrumental rock guitarists to emerge in the past three decades, Joe Satriani is that rare “musician’s musician” who’s crossed over into the mainstream with music that is both sublime and complex, appealing to a wide variety of tastes.

Satriani Inks New Multi-Album Deal with Legacy for Future Recordings

_______________________________

February 6, 2014 – New York, NY – Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings, a 15 CD library box housing the rock guitar virtuoso’s most comprehensive anthology ever, on Tuesday, April 22 (http://smarturl.it/sat_complete_amzn).

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings will also be available as a collectible limited edition USB drive exclusively on satriani.com.

One of the most influential and respected instrumental rock guitarists to emerge in the past three decades, Joe Satriani is that rare “musician’s musician” who’s crossed over into the mainstream with music sublime and complex, appealing to a wide variety of tastes.

A true master of the six-string, Satriani worked as a guitar teacher in his early career, with a number of his students—among them Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Larry LaLonde, David Bryson (Counting Crows), Charlie Hunter and more—achieving their own considerable successes.

While in considerable demand as a sideman throughout his career—he’s toured with Mick Jagger, Deep Purple and many others—Satriani has pursued his own musical vision over the years through a series of instrumental rock albums (many of them Grammy nominated) which chronicle his evolution as an artist and his eloquence as a guitarist.

All 14 of Joe Satriani’s landmark studio albums, from Not of This Earth (his 1986 debut) through  Unstoppable Momentum (2013’s masterpiece), are included in the new collection alongside “Added Creations and Bonus Tracks,” a newly-curated anthology disc of rare compositions and performances falling outside the purview of Satriani’s official album canon, and Surfing with the Alien, 1987’s platinum-selling breakout.

“When the good people at Legacy approached me with the idea of a comprehensive box set featuring my studio recordings in their entirety, plus bonus tracks, all re-mastered, I answered with a resounding, ‘YES!,'” said Joe Satriani.  “The only person who could pull this all together logistically and sonically was mastering engineer John Cuniberti. John and I have recorded quite a bit of music together going way back to the early ’80’s. I’ve made more records with John engineering and co-producing than anyone else, so, who better to help me put this box set together the right way? His attention to detail has made this project exciting, illuminating and ultimately awesome sounding. ”

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings presents brand-new digital masters, overseen by Joe Satriani, with each CD packaged in a replica cardboard jacket.  The library collection is housed in a specially designed clamshell box with a booklet filled with photos and memorabilia from across the decades.

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings is the ideal audio accompaniment to “Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir,” Satriani’s autobiography (benbellabooks.com), also coming in April.

__________________________

A tireless performer who draws strength and inspiration from live shows, Satriani is consistently one of the world’s top concert draws.  He is a core member of the rock supergroup Chickenfoot (with Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith) as well as founder of the highly successful G3 tours, each teaming Satriani with a pair of top-flight guitarists with shows often featuring special guest artists and other musical surprises.  A nearly annual event, G3 launched in 1996 with Steve Vai and Eric Johnson and has showcased a wide variety of axemen over the years including Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robert Fripp, John Petrucci, Steve Morse, Neal Schon, Brian May, Billy Gibbons, Steve Lukather and many others.  Most recently, the G3 tour played South America in 2012.

Over his career, Joe Satriani has earned 15 Best Rock Instrumental Performance Grammy nominations alongside Platinum (Surfing With The Alien, Flying in a Blue Dream) and Gold (Surfing With The Alien, Flying in a Blue Dream, The Extremist, Time Machine) certifications for his solo recordings.  He also racked up Gold and Platinum certifications for the DVD Live in San Francisco and 2  G3 DVDs  G3 Live and  Live in Denver.

Satriani is extending his decades-long relationship with Sony Music, signing a new multi-album deal with Legacy for future recordings.

SATCHURATED: LIVE IN MONTREAL – By Guitar Legend JOE SATRIANI Lands At #3 On BILLBOARD’S DVD CHART

Posted in Guitar, guitarists, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock concerts, rock guitarists, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on May 2, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

RELEASED ON 3D BLU-RAY, DVD & CD APRIL 24, 2012, THROUGH EPIC RECORDS

(Los Angeles, CA)  Joe Satriani, one of the most respected and innovative guitarist’s in the world, released his critically-acclaimed live concert Satchurated: Live in Montreal last week on 3D Blu-ray, DVD and Soundtrack CD, through Epic Records and today, the DVD enters at # 3 on The Billboard DVD chart.

Joe is about to hit the road on Friday with his ‘other’ band, Chickenfoot, this Friday but from rehearsals, had this to say:

“Satchurated 3D” DVD is #3!!! Big thanks to all of my fans worldwide for making this happen.  See you out there on the road!”

Satchurated was recorded and filmed in front of a live audience during Satriani’s “The Wormhole Tour”, supporting his studio album Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards, at the Metropolis in Montreal, Canada. The December 12, 2010 concert was filmed by GRAMMY and EMMY award-winning concert filmmakers Pierre and Francois Lamoureux. Satchurated: Live in Montreal was recently released for a limited engagement on March 1, 2012 to select theatres throughout the country. The high-definition recording makes Satriani’s performance as much a pleasure to see by DVD, as it is to hear by CD.

SATCHURATED: LIVE IN MONTREAL – A Filmed Concert Performance By World Renowned Guitarist JOE SATRIANI – Set For March 1, 2012 Release In Theaters

Posted in classic rock, concert movies, guitarists, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, movies, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on January 27, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Film will be shown in both 2D & 3D HD

Soundtrack to be released on April 10, 2012 through Epic Records

(Los Angeles, CA)  Joe Satriani, one of the most respected and innovative guitarist’s in the world today, announces the release of the live-concert film, Satchurated: Live in Montreal.   Satchurated was filmed live during Satriani’s “The Wormhole Tour”, supporting his studio album Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards at the Metropolis in Montreal, Canada.

The December 12, 2010 concert was filmed by GRAMMY and EMMY award-winning concert filmmakers Pierre and Francois Lamoureux.  Satchurated: Live in Montreal will be released to select theatres throughout the country on March 1, 2012 for a limited engagement.

With a total of ten cameras working to capture the sold-out concert, Satriani’s musical best was recorded in both 2D and 3D HD formats.  The high-definition filming makes Satriani’s play as much a pleasure to watch as it is to hear. Every chord change is captured and presented as if one were experiencing a living room concert of your very own!

Fans of “Satch” will be eagerly awaiting the film’s worldwide release in March 2012 with theatrical presentations in both 2D and 3D formats, followed by a shorter version for television broadcast.  The soundtrack from Satchurated was produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser and will be released on April 10, 2012 through Epic Records.

Over the last two decades, Satriani has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza.  His 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 have just released their second studio album.

Satriani also appears in the Academy Award-nominated film Moneyball starring Brad Pitt, recreating a National Anthem performance he gave at the 2002 Opening Day of Major League Baseball’s Oakland A’s.  In late 2010, music sensation Nicki Minaj sampled the classic Satriani song, “Always With Me Always With You” in her song, “Right Through Me” from her multi-platinum debut album and in March 2012, Satriani will revive his “G3” Tour ‘down-under’ when he is joined by fellow legendary guitarists Steve Vai & Steve Lukather for a Spring tour of Australia & New Zealand.
