Steve Vai & Joe Satriani Tour happening!

For the first time ever, after more than 50 years of friendship, it’s the Satch-Vai 2024 Tour!
Believe it not, this is the first time Joe and Steve will tour as a duo-bill, and it comes along with plans to release a new musical collaboration.

“The Satch/Vai Tour is happening! I’m so looking forward to sharing the stage with Steve again. Every time we play together it takes me back to when we were teenagers, eating and breathing music every second of the day, pushing, challenging and helping each other to be the best we could be. I guess we’ve never stopped!”
– Joe
“Touring with Joe is always a pleasure and an honor. He is my favorite guitarist to jam with, and now we have another opportunity to take it to the stage. I feel as though we are both at the top of our game and that the show will be a powerful celebration of the coolest instrument in the world, the electric guitar!”
– Steve

The Satch-Vai tour starts March 22 and runs through May 8, 2024. Pre-Sale begins 11/13 (password: SVx24) with the public on-sale 11/17.

Eindhoven recap & Photos

Hey folks, 
Having the opportunity to perform my music with the Metropole Orchestra on May 13, 2023 in Eindhoven Holland was the stuff life dreams are made of. 
At times I felt enveloped in the elixir of the melodies while being suspended a foot off the ground by the swooning atmosphere the mighty Metropole created. These are the things I envisioned myself doing from the time I was perhaps 9 years old. It’s crazy how it’s all manifested. 
The audience was tremendously supportive the entire evening and made the whole event a peak experience. My deepest appreciation to all those who attended and gave such kind support, and to the “Mighty Met” and all the fine people that worked so hard to make this event a reality. Special shout out to my orchestral partners, the Creative Catalyst Co de Kloet and the great maestro conductor Jukka Iisakkila.
I’m very much looking forward to our next orchestral performance this September in Tampere Finland with the Tampere philharmonic. Stay tuned for details.
Big love to all of you
Steve Vai flying high!
Here are some pictures we took during rehearsals for you to enjoy!

Hey Folks, last weekend I was honored with the opportunity to perform a few songs with the mighty Chicago band at the Chicago and Friends Tribute Concert at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey. These concerts are a tribute celebration of the 55th Anniversary of the their debut album “Chicago Transit Authority." A special TV tribute concert “Decades Rock Live” will be culled from the performances and aired at some time in the future. The whole experience was outstanding. This historic band has been making hit records and touring for the last 57 years, and they sound more full and powerful than ever. Terry Kath, who was the original guitar player in Chicago until his death in 1978, was an inspired visceral player whose raw 60’s-70’s guitar tone helped shape the sound of rock guitar in popular music starting from their days opening up for Jimi Hendrix, who was a fan and friend of Terry. It was an honor to pay tribute to this legend and the band by contributing to several songs throughout the night. I have not played in such a huge sounding and robust band since Zappa. The horns were slammin', in tune, funky and phenomenally arranged. I also had the opportunity to meet new people and bond with them, which is my favorite thing about these kinds of gigs. Besides all the band members, some of those artists were Christone "KINGFISH" Ingram, Chris Daughtry, Robin Thicke, VoicePlay, Robert Randolph, and Judith Hill. They all delivered like bosses! And a shout out to the current guitar player in Chicago, Tony Obrohta. An outstanding player who fits the band perfectly and an overall terrific person. Thanks to the whole band for inviting me to contribute to this special event. I’m humbled. Here is a clip I found from the audience of the last little guitar cadenza I did on a song called “South California Purples." I’m sure the final TV version will sound infinitely better, but here’s a taste.Enjoy ... See MoreSee Less

It’s happening, Joe Satriani and I are touring together. For me this is like heaven in a cup. My favorite person to enter that intimate state of musical exchange with has always been Joe. It’s been this way since I was 12 years old and I couldn’t be more thrilled at this time in our lives to be doing this tour together now. I believe this celebration of the rock guitar will be a feast for the ears of all those who attend our shows. Tickets are on sale now: ... See MoreSee Less
