Joe Satriani Announce "GC Sessions" Tour Dates

Joe Satriani has achieved legendary status as the premier electric guitarist with 13 solo albums, three platinum DVDs, and the mega-successful G3 tours. On April 1, 2008, Satriani kicks off the release of his 13th solo album, entitled "Professor Satchafunkilus And The Musterion Of Rock" (Sony/BMG), with the first of 11 nationwide "GC Sessions" at the Guitar Center in Boston, Mass. The much-anticipated "GC Sessions" will feature question-and-answer segments, autograph signings, and best of all, live performances by Joe Satriani. Following the album's release, Satriani will embark on a worldwide tour, kicking off April 30 in Lisbon, Portugal before hitting the continental European market, Australia, South America, and finally returning to the U.S. in the fall of 2008.

"Professor Satchafunkilus" was produced through the creative envisioning of Satriani and John Cuniberti; guiding the musical talents of longtime drummer/percussionist Jeff Campitelli and reknowned bassist Matt Bissonette. A special addition to the album’s artist list is Joe's own son, ZZ Satriani, playing the tenor sax.

Over the last two decades, Satriani has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star G3 guitar extravaganza. Of his 13 solo albums, two went platinum and four gold with 15 Grammy nominations between them. This year Joe was nominated for "Best Rock Instrumental Performance" for the song "Always With Me, Always With You" from his album "Surfing with the Alien".

2007 marked the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking album "Surfing with the Alien" and was commemorated with new expanded edition in a meticulously restored two-disc set including the newly re-mastered album and a previously never-before-seen live show filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1988.
