The G3 2016 lineup has been announced, and it will feature Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Guthrie Govan. Govan’s group, the Aristocrats—bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Marco Minnemann—will serve as the rhythm section.
So far, the tour has been confirmed for three summer dates in Italy and three in Germany. More will be scheduled.
“It’s limited to a few dates in Italy right now, but it’s true: There will be some G3 dates this summer, and the 3 G’s will be Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and The Aristocrats,” the Aristocrats have said. “Why can’t a band be a G, right? Needless to say, we’re psyched and grateful for the opportunity.
“We have a tremendous amount of respect for Joe and Steve as groundbreaking artists in the world of instrumental rock who continue to bring it year after year. It will be a special privilege to bring our subversive brew of Aristocratic musical mayhem to the G3 stage—and especially the G3 audience. Let the games begin!”
Tickets will are on sale via TicketOne.
