Inviolate 2023 EU tour

I love touring Europe and Eastern Europe and myself and the band are just itching to get out there again to be on that stage and feel the power of the music and the audience flowing through us, so… TADA!!! Check out our tour dates for this upcoming European run March-May 2023 in support of Inviolate. I get emotional when I see these dates, and this time I’m bringing the Hydra!

Tickets will go on sale this friday at 12 PM CET and as always there will be an EVO option for most dates.


Happy Holidays!

Hey folks, you know who is here. 
I want to wish you all a peaceful, and fulfiling holiday season. It certainly has been here at chez Vai. 
This year was another mother load with the release of Inviolate and how amazingly well it was received, phewww! There was…
* Inviolate release
* Patreon content
* Another shoulder surgery
* Prepping orchestra scores and recordings in Holland and Finland
* Tour prep and our notorious but rewarding European tour
* Our very nice Vai Camp
* South America Rock in Rio with Living Color
* Outstanding peak American tour
* And this friendly message
I feel so honored to have had you there through all this. You humble me. I have no words for my appreciation of you. 😌
And now I’m inspired for 2023! 
So here’s my Holiday message to you… 
“The feeling of fulfillment can be accessed in you by the simple act of giving your full attention to doing something you enjoy doing, and feeling the appreciation of doing it while thinking of nothing else.
You are doing many things during the day that you can find this simple enjoyment in… waiting at a stop light, standing in a line, eating a meal, packing and un-packing, etc. etc. simple things. By giving these things full attention and thinking of nothing else, you are feeling fulfilled in that moment. 
A powerful reminder that can be referred to when needing to make a decision, is to “choose joy in this situation”. 
Happy Holidays
I see you, and I love you

Steve Vai & Metropole Orkest May 13, 2023

Once again I get to blast Holland with the Metropole Orchestra. We recorded together for 3 weeks last May, so we have a whole slew of newly orchestrated compositions to perform. Playing with the Metropole is always a powerful experience. The orchestra is comprised of adventurous and intensely talented people that know how to have a good time with these notes, and I’m looking so forward to it.

Thanks to Co De Kloet (creative catalyst) and Jukka Iisakkila (our Maestro).

My dear friend Dave Weiner, I can never thank you enough for your dedication, care, professionalism and uplifting spirit you have brought to our stage and my music over the last 23 years. The respect you have shown me, the band, the crew, and all who have come into our orbit for the last 23 years is an example for all. One day in the future we will sit and reminisce over all the extraordinary life adventures we shared together. You are gentlemen, and you are extraordinary and I am grateful.
And of course there is an open invitation to join us for a ruckus jam at any time.

We wrapped up our glorious 27 year G3 anniversary tour this weekend in LA. The whole tour was an exceptional life experience. Being on the road with this entourage was like touring in a warm float tank. It was a pleasure beyond measure. Eric Johnson and Joe Satriani never cease to amaze and inspire me with their brilliance and innovation. And to feel them on stage every night trading riffs in our jams was uplifting and exhilarating! On top of all that, they are solid good people and cherished friends.Big time thanks to our crew and management that worked so hard to make it the exceptional experience that it was, and to all the folks that came to enjoy the shows. Your support is humbling🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼Group Photo: Jen RosensteinAll Other Photos: Chris Huber ... See MoreSee Less

The G3 tour is going by too fast! We are truly having a blast. In Reno we were graced by the appearance of the inimitable David Coverdale, leader of Whitesnake/David Coverdale, vocalist extraordinaire, dear brother, and overall massively charming and gifted gentleman that intensely rocks. It was so great to see him.Also, our show in Oakland was strong and the audience was just off the hook. We were joined by great players Vic Johnson and Doug Doppler for the jam. It was nice to feel those other players on stage and watch them tear it up so beautifully.Doug is an ol’ friend that I’ve known since the early days of my arrival in Los Angeles in the 80’s. Besides being a key component to the oversight and success of the Vai Academy camps, he’s a powerful player. Check out his “Nu Instrumental” record. ... See MoreSee Less
