The Surfing to Shockwave Tour will celebrate Joe Satriani’s over-thirty-year career and will feature music from Not of this Earth (1986), one of the most successful rock instrumental albums to date, Surfing with the Alien (1987), all through his latest and fifteenth solo album, Shockwave Supernova (2016).

The tour promises to be a highlight for any Joe Satriani fan. Of course, the set list will contain fan favourites, but the legendary guitarist also promises to include some gems, pulled from the “Satriani Songbook” which may not have ever been performed live, or in some cases, for a very long time.
