Get Ready to Shred: Steve Vai Announces European Tour starting March 24th

Legendary guitar virtuoso Steve Vai is set to embark on the second leg of his European tour, starting on March 24th in Lisbon, Portugal. The “Inviolate World Tour” will take Vai through Spain, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Slovakia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, Latvia, and Estonia, before wrapping up on May 7th in Helsinki, Finland.

Vai shared his excitement for the tour, saying ‘Our previous fall tour of North America was outstanding. Myself and the band are as oiled up and ready as ever. I’m excited to finally bring the Hydra guitar to Europe as I missed doing that on the last EU run. The response from Inviolate was tremendously positive and it showed in the press, the attendance, and the energy in the audience and we are so much looking forward to this EU tour.’

But that’s not all – later this month, Vai will release a long-awaited album, “Vai / Gash”, on January 27th. The album was written and recorded in a stream of consciousness in 1991, as Vai sought a specific type of music to listen to while riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle with his friends. One of those friends, John “Gash” Sombrotto, serves as the most potent singer on the record. Vai describes the album as reminiscent of the type of rock music he enjoyed as a teenager in the 1970s. These recordings have sat on the shelf for over 30 years, but are finally being released in 2023. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to catch Steve Vai live and hear his long-awaited album.
