John Petrucci is currently on his first headlining solo tour with drummer Mike Portnoy (also of Dream Theater) and bassist Dave LaRue (Steve Morse/Dixie Dregs) and will be appearing at the fabulous Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in the fabled Marina District of San Francisco on Monday.

Special guests Meanstreak – the all-female power/thrash metal band from New York – will be opening up.

Petrucci graced the cover of GP's August issue alongside mentor Steve Morse for a shred summit sharing their experiences and advice on the art of guitar craft.

Check out this article that includes the official video for the title track of Petrucci’s 2020 solo effort Terminal Velocity, and a video of Petrucci commemorating two decades of working with Ernie Ball Music Man.

Petrucci has amassed a vast array of signature instruments, and the 2022 Majesty Collection includes an outrageous 8-string.

Petrucci says, “I just celebrated 20 years with Ernie Ball Music Man. It’s been such a great experience. Beyond building guitars, there’s a family there. 

"I’m proud to play these guitars and be a part of the family.”

His latest single is the hard-driving “Temple of Circadia,” and here’s the officially kick-ass animated video...

Come see Petrucci put all his musical craftiness and instrumental craftsmanship into play at San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts Theatre on Monday.
