Interview and Live Photos by Robert Cavuoto
Starting at the end of January 2024, Joe Satriani will embark on three back-to-back tours that will take him crisscrossing the United States like never before. For his first tour, Joe reunited the perfect traveling guitar extravaganza for his G3 Reunion, which includes Steve Vai and Eric Johnson. G3 is Joe’s brainchild and is a celebration of all things guitar. It is designed to showcase each guitarist’s musical prowess and diversity while inspiring musicians! The event is a meeting of different musical minds, backgrounds, and approaches, but in the end, it’s a cohesive evening of masterful playing. The G3 Reunion Tour runs from January 23rd in Tuscan, AZ, to February 10th in Los Angeles, CA.
After G3 concludes, Joe and Steve continue for their Satch/Vai Tour that runs from March 22nd in Orlando, FL, to May 12th in Santa Rosa, CA. Joe and Steve continue turning fans to their instrumental guitar playing and how their contrasting styles provide a brilliant spectrum of sound!

To the delight of all Van Halen and Chickenfoot fans, Joe, Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, and Jason Bonham have united to celebrate the music of Van Halen, Chickenfoot, and Montrose. It is a fitting and well-deserved tribute to Eddie Van Halen, entitled The Best of All World Tour. Those outdoor arena shows will start on July 13th in Palm Beach, FL, and end on August 31st in St. Louis, MO. Tickets for The Best of All Worlds can be found here: http://www.redrocker.com/
It is always an honor, pleasure, and privilege to interview one of the greatest guitar players in the world, Joe Satriani! In my interview, Joe discusses his busy 2024 with three major back-to-back tours plus the Monsters of Rock Cruise! Joe divulges that he and Steve Vai are currently working on a new song together that they will debut during the Satch/Vai Tour and how the tour with Sammy, Michael, and Jason will encompass not only all eras of Van Halen songs but songs from Chickenfoot and Montrose! He shares the daunting task of learning all the Van Halen songs and even had an amp explicitly built to emulate Eddie’s sound. Find out about the guitars Joe plans to take on these tours, but he has yet to pack his suitcase!
