Joe Satriani, one of rock music’s most respected and celebrated electric guitar players, will undertake a 10-date 2013 UK tour starting Saturday 8th June at the Manchester Apollo. This will be Satriani’s first UK tour since 2010’s Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards tour . Very special guest is blues guitarist Matt Schofield.

Tickets go on sale Friday 2nd November and you can book them online from www.ticketline.co.uk (tel: 0844 888 9991) or direct from the venue. The tour coincides with Satriani’s new solo album released by Sony worldwide in May 2013, followed by a career retrospective box set in the spring.

Earlier this year, Satriani performed a sold out concert with Chickenfoot at the London Brixton Academy in support of the band’s second album III.

He also embarked on multiple G3 tours in Australia, Europe and South America, had his music sampled in Nicki Minaj‘ hit single Right Thru Me, and appeared as himself in Brad Pitt’s Oscar-nominated baseball film Moneyball.
