imgJoe Satriani has been an unstoppable force on the music scene for over 27 years. Now, the guitar great announces his full U.S. tour and first ever cross-Canada tour, supporting his latest album Unstoppable Momentum. The tour is set to launch on August 29th in San Diego, CA before crisscrossing its way across the US, in addition to a trans-Canadian tour where Satriani will be hitting many Canadian cities for the very first time. The North American tour will end with a show on October 26 in Oakland, CA. Joining  Satriani on the road are veteran band mate Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) on keyboards, along with an entirely new rhythm-section, featuring bassist Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Dweezil Zappa) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Steve Wilson).

Satriani is celebrating Unstoppable Momentum, his 14th studio album, which was released on May 7, 2013.  The album debuted at # 42 giving Satriani his highest chart position in over 20 years.  The World Tour launched on May 18 in Istanbul, Turkey and continues on through July 13 in Krasnodar, Russia.  Critics are raving about the guitar great’s new album with Total Guitar saying “…(Satriani’s) momentum truly seems unstoppable.  The best we can do is to hang on tight,” while Classic Rock declares, “Satch nails it on 14th solo sweep!”
 
For 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 their second studio album debuted at #9.
